WHAT IS EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL?

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the freshly-squeezed juice of the olive fruit. It must be totally unprocessed and kept below 75 degrees Fahrenheit at all times during the mechanical extraction process. For an oil to be labeled extra virgin, it must meet strict chemical criteria as defined by the International Olive Oil Council and adopted by the European Union and USDA, but must also have perfect flavor and aroma as determined by a certified tasting panel.
