It also possesses anti-inflammatory qualities and is abundant in antioxidants, aiding in the prevention of oxidative stress and lowering chronic disease risk.
The merits of PDO olive oil certification
The PDO seal validates that the olive oil is crafted through time-honored, regulated procedures, supporting the local agronomy by endorsing and maintaining conventional agricultural methods. The PDO endorsement also enhances the product’s distinctiveness, contributing economic value to the region.
Why opt for PDO olive oil?
Opting for PDO olive oil means choosing a top-tier oil that is intrinsically linked to its place of origin. The certification guarantees adherence to rigorous quality standards, positioning it as a coveted product. Selecting PDO olive oil not only supports local agriculture and conserves heritage farming techniques but also ensures a consumption experience marked by exceptional quality.
Evoo stands for “Extra Virgin Olive Oil.” It is the highest grade of olive oil, characterized by its superior quality and taste. To be classified as extra virgin, the olive oil must be produced by mechanical means without the use of chemicals or excessive heat, which ensures the oil’s natural flavor, aroma, and health benefits are preserved.
Extra virgin olive oil is made from pure, cold-pressed olives, whereas other olive oils may be processed using heat or chemicals or created from a blend of cold-pressed and processed oils. EVOO is also noted for its low acidity, and high levels of polyphenols, which are natural antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds.
Because of its purity and sensory attributes—such as its taste and smell—extra virgin olive oil is typically used in cooking applications where its flavors can shine, like in salad dressings, dips, or as a finishing oil.
