The difference between EVOO and regular virgin olive oil

Extra virgin olive oil has a maximum acidity of 0.8% and can have no defects. Virgin olive oil can have acidity up to 2.0% and a median of defects between zero and 2.5 in a tasting by a trained panel. In other words, extra virgin olive oil tastes better and is healthier for you. But virgin olive oil is still better than other cooking oils and can cost less than EVOO.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil

This is the highest grade of olive oil. It comes from virgin olive oil production (mechanical with no chemical treatment), is considered to have a superior taste, and contains no more than 0.8 percent free acidity.

Even though it is the highest grade, the quality, aroma, flavor, color, health benefits, and price can vary greatly from one brand to another.

Harvesting olive

Traditionally, picking olives is done by hand, even in commercial groves. Today, more growers use modern machinery to help them harvest the crop.

Fluidity, aroma and taste

Fresh, high-quality extra virgin olive oil is one of the world’s healthiest foods. Olive oils crafted with care are packed with antioxidants and phenolic compounds that are proven to help reduce and prevent diseases.
