organic extra virgin olive oil

Organic olive oil is positioned as an essential element in the diet of southern Europe, particularly in the Mediterranean diet, recognized as an invaluable cultural heritage. This deep-rooted tradition in the use of olive oil in cooking and food preservation reflects the vast knowledge and experience passed down through generations. Beyond contributing to the good taste of dishes, this oil promotes an appreciation for the environment.

Olive oil, regardless of its organic origin, stands out for its exquisite flavor, captivating aroma and ability to enhance food textures. This essential ingredient in the kitchen, both to accompany bread and to dress a wide variety of dishes, not only enhances gastronomic qualities, but also adds a distinctive and personalized touch to each recipe. Its resistance to high temperatures without generating toxic compounds makes it a reliable choice for cooking and frying.

The versatility of olive oil goes beyond its culinary use, finding application in the elaboration of cosmetic and medicinal products. Nowadays we can find in the markets a variety of soaps, creams, balms and masks made with olive oil.

Origin and life cycle of the olive tree

Olive oil comes from the olive tree (Olea europea var. europaea), a tree revered throughout Mediterranean history for its versatility and resilience. With a life cycle similar to that of humans, the olive tree grows slowly and can produce olives for decades. The careful selection of more than 2000 olive varieties over the centuries has contributed to the diversity and richness of this crop.

 

Olive growing is not only an economic activity, but also a link to the history and culture of Mediterranean regions. Olive groves, with their majestic century-old trees, are emblematic landscapes that have inspired artists and poets over the centuries. In addition, olive trees play an important role in the ecology of these regions, providing habitats for a variety of wildlife species and contributing to soil and water conservation.

Characteristics and extraction process of olive oil

Olive oil is unique among edible oils in that it is extracted directly from a fresh fruit, without the need for refinement. This extraction process, which involves crushing the olives and separating the oil from the vegetable paste, preserves its natural characteristics, including essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants. Once obtained, the oil is carefully stored to maintain its quality and freshness.
