The Chemistry of Olive Oil

chemistry of olive oil picture

 

Each harvest we do both chemical analysis, and taste tests of our various oils to ensure quality.

 

Everyone claims their olive oil is the best, but do they back up their claims with actual lab tests? Extra Virgin olive oil must be fresh, low in acidity, peroxides, and other characteristics, and have a strong, fruity, intense taste with a peppery like aftertaste that you feel in your throat afterwards

 

Below are our lab test result for recent lots of our olive oil. Important characteristics are free fatty acidity, peroxides, and UV K levels (the lower the better).
