Patiently Cold Extracted
The taste, the color, the typicity and the benefits of our oils are preserved because we take the time and the means to cold extract the best of the oilseeds. The fruit of this long work is savored in each bottle!
For grilled meats and green vegetables
Lemon and olive have always been a good match, and this is the case here too. The freshness of natural lemon lifts the olive oil and makes it a seasoning in its own right. Season steamed beans, fennel and thinly sliced zucchini for a real treat.
Frequently Asked Questions
How we make it
What is the extraction method used to make olive oil?
The best extra virgin olive oils are made by cold extraction or cold pressing.
The cold extraction involves the malaxing and centrigugation (spinning) of the olive paste so that the oil is extracted in the form of fine droplets agglutinant to each other in order to be harvested. The first cold pressed process uses a hydraulic press which crushes the scourtins (fibre disks) on which the olive paste is extended. It creates a pressure allowing the oil to be harvested.
Both methods are done at cold temperature.
Nowadays, cold extraction is preferred as a production method, as it is a process that allows a better control of the manufacturing parameters.
Why "extra virgin"?
We often see oils on which the term "extra virgin" is written but it is important to know that the use of the term extra virgin applies only to olive oil and can not be used on other oils.
The term extra virgin is the subject of a standard developed by the International Olive Oil Council and designates the best quality of olive oil. Thus, extra virgin olive oil must have a free acidity level of less than 0.8% and comply with specific organoleptic quality criteria, including the absence of defects and the presence of positive attributes in balance (Peppery, Fruity and Bitter).
How long can I keep my oils?
Generally, an oil will keep for about 12 to 18 months after extraction. Just read the "best before" date on the bottle. This will give you an idea of the freshness of the product.
Of course, the fresher it is, the better it is.
Should I keep my oils refrigerated?
It is not necessary to keep all oils in the refrigerator. They can easily be kept in the pantry, away from heat and light. However, some oils must be refrigerated at all times, such as virgin flaxseed oil.
