Information on olive oil and balsamic vinegar
The main ingredient in our products is either oil or vinegar. Some contain a minimum concentration of infused essential oils; it is for this reason that our products are considered to have only one ingredient. Make no mistake, even in small quantities - there's no shortage of taste!
All the flavors are the product of different natural extraction methods: maceration, purification and infusion. No artificial products are used.
Extra virgin olive oil
We offer a range of mild, medium and full-bodied extra virgin olive oils as well as agrumato, and infused olive oils.
Extra virgin olive oil is an oil in its purest form; it lost nothing by the filtration process and nothing was added to it artificially. Filtration reduces the amount of molecules naturally present in olive juice and its peel, without filtration the oil retains all its beneficial properties.
Our citrus oils have been fused with the ingredient that goes into them. So, means that the olives and the rocket ingredient are pressed together to create a high quality extra virgin rocket olive oil. This process is possible with ingredients that naturally contain a large amount of citric acid such as citrus fruits and hot peppers.
Our oils have all been tested with a multi-residue pesticide panel in a third-party laboratory certified by the advice olive oil international (COI). This ensures food safety and further guarantees our customers healthy and pesticide-free oils in all cases. Read the page " Organic or conventional HOEV " for more information.
