  • Organic Extra Virgin 100ml (3.38 oz)

    Certified organic olive oils use organically grown olives and meet organic production standards for their region. Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil. By definition it must have some fruity flavor, zero defects, free fatty acid level below 0.8%, and be derived by cold extraction below 27°C ~ 80°F.

  • Varietals: Picual

    There are hundreds of olive tree varieties, each with its own distinct taste and aromas.

  • Polyphenols (mk/kg): 682mg

    Polyphenols are antioxidant micronutrients found in plant-based foods. The phenolic concentration in olive oil depends on variables like the variety, ripeness at harvest, extraction methods, etc. Visit our Health Benefits page to learn more.

  • Acidity: 0.14%

    Acidity is one of the quality parameters set by the IOC for extra virgin olive oil. By definition extra virgin olive oil must have a free fatty acid level below 0.8%. Acidity CANNOT be detected by sensory analysis. This value is always determined by a laboratory.

  • Harvest Date: Fall 2020
