Our Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is pressed from Spanish Picual olives.
Prized for their fruity, apple-like aroma and tangy flavor, Picual olives are often called the "queen" of olives.
The olives come from ancient groves arrayed on the sun drenched hills of Andalusia, where heirloom trees are tended with care and fertilized with organic compost.
The family that owns the ancestral orchard picks their olives at the peak of perfection, and gently cold-presses them to create this savory sensory delight.
Compared with standard vegetables oils (corn, soy, safflower), olive oil is relatively low in omega-6 fatty acids.
According to experts at The Olive Source, "Freshly pressed oil, made carefully, without the use of excessive heat, from sound, healthy, freshly picked olives, normally has a pretty low acidity, well under 0.5% FFA [free fatty acids]."
