Extra virgin olive oil is made simply by crushing olives and extracting the juice. It is the only cooking oil that is made without the use of chemicals and industrial refining.
It’s simply the juice of fresh, healthy olives which contains, more than any other grade. The health-promoting nutrients that olive oil is famous for.
WHAT IS EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL?
Extra virgin is the highest quality and most expensive olive oil classification. It should have no defects and a flavour of fresh olives.
It must be produced entirely by mechanical means without the use of any solvents, and under temperatures that will not degrade the oil.
It’s not easy to produce extra virgin olive oil. A producer must use fresh olives in good condition and monitor every step of the process with great care, just like what we do at Volante.
