What does “Extra Virgin” mean?
Only certain olive oils can be labeled “extra virgin.” Essentially, extra virgin olive oil is not refined. This means that the olive oil does not go through any chemical processes during production. It is simply extracted from the olives and bottled. Therefore, only the highest-quality olives should be used in producing extra virgin olive oil.
When is Extra Virgin Olive Oil Best for Cooking?
Unlike neutral oils, extra virgin olive oil has a noticeable flavor. Cook with it when you want to taste the olive oil in the dish you’re preparing. We love to top soups, salads, roasted vegetables and bread with OliveNation’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
