|Harvest: May 2023 ? Harvest Date: The fresher the better! Olive oils are healthier and more flavorful when they’re consumed fresh!||Bio-Phenols: 468 ? Polyphenols –
Antioxidant substances found in EVOO. The higher the better! Polyphenols extend the shelf-life of an oil & also determine the “style” in terms of bitterness and pungency. Our high phenol oils are being recommended by health professionals all over the world.
|Peroxide: 2.6 ? Peroxide: Peroxide Value – (PV)
The lower the better! Must be equal or less than 20. The primary measurement of the rancidity of a particular extra virgin olive oil. PV is affected by procedures used in processing and storing of the oil. Our average PV at time of crush is around 4!
|Oleic: 76.6 ? Oleic Acid:
Legal limit is 55%. The higher the better. Our average is around 77%! Our bodies absorb peroxidized fats we consume and incorporate them into your cells, oleic acid’s superior resistance to free radical attacks also protects your cell membranes, proteins, and DNA from being damaged, even as it protects the oil from spoiling.
|Dags: 98 ? DAGS :DAGs are important shelf-life indicators and can be used to determine the shelf life (or lack thereof) of an oil at any time in its life. Fresh Olive Oil made from sound fruit should result in a DAG content of 85% or higher whereas the processing of rotten and or fermented olives will produce fresh oil with low DAGs indicating a very short shelf-life.||FFA: .13 ?
FFA: Free Fatty Acid – The lower, the better. The IOC requires that this number be below 0.8 in order to be considered Extra Virgin grade. Our average is about 0.18! The lower the FFA, the higher the smoke point of the oil.
This is a beautiful medium intensity Arbosana that displays aromas of light citrus and ripe apple. Taste the creamy almond center that finishes with loads of pepper without any bitterness. This olive oil uniquely contains considerable phenols but is very approachable for people who shy away from the bitterness “finale” associate with high polyphenol extra virgins. Savor and enjoy!
