At Puri Pangan, we believe that there are a few key components to selecting your desired olive oil. That’s why we choose to supply Ondoliva’s olive oil. Olive oil has stuck around ever since the days of the Romans. Since 1950, Ondoliva has shared with the world olive oil made from the best perfectly ripe olives. Olive oil is distinguished by how they are processed. In our blog today, we will learn in depth what extra virgin olive oil and pomace olive oil is, along with its benefits and usage in our everyday life.
Extra virgin olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil you can find on your supermarket’s shelves. Ondoliva extra virgin olive oil has a balanced, slightly almond-flavoured taste with touches of green apple. It’s so flavorful that it is ideal for dressings, seasonings, or lightly drizzled on a piece of bread. It is produced by first cold pressing the olives. The cold press process means that heat or chemicals do not partake in the production. This type of olive oil is ideal for heatless applications.
“Virgin” olive oil, without the word “extra,” is the oil produced from pressing a second time. It has a lighter flavor and color compared to an extra virgin olive oil.
Pomace olive oil
Pomace is the ground flesh and pits left after the extraction process. All olive-pomace oils are obtained by treating it with solvents or other physical treatments. Within the olive-pomace oils category, oil specifically labeled as olive-pomace oil is a blend of virgin olive oil and refined pomace oil. Ondoliva’s pomace olive oil is ideal for deep frying as it’s characteristics does not deteriorate at boiling temperatures.
Use of pomace olive oil is a much debated topic in today’s increasingly health-focused food industry. With Ondoliva, the worries of purchasing ‘fake’ olive oil and low quality olive oil are over. In order to create the perfect blend with maximum quality, Ondoliva understands their olive oil grades, and crafts blends to create the best flavor profiles, and have a strict food security policy.
Having said all that, it is important to recognize that there are huge differences among different types of olive oils in terms of their quality, taste, aroma, color, health benefits, shelf life, presentation, and of course their price tags. So if you’re looking for the perfect olive oil to complement your dinner tonight, you can trust Ondoliva.
