Looking for Organic Olive Pomace Oil?

Posted by Hannah Broaddus

Blog06-Oil-Pouring-aAt Centra Foods, we’ve received some requests for Organic Olive Pomace Oil.  Unfortunately, this isn’t a product that you can buy.  That’s because Organic Olive Pomace Oil does not exist.

 
To be certified “organic”, the olives have to be grown according to organic farming practices, and the manufacturing of the olive oil has to be done organically-- that is, without chemicals.
Olive Pomace Oil is most commonly a solvent extracted oil, similar to all seed oils like Soybean and Canola. The process uses heat and a solvent to extract the remaining oil out of the Olive Pomace.  This process is inherently not organic.  


In the US, the most common grade of Certified Organic Olive Oil is the Extra Virgin.  Although, sometimes you can also find Organic Virgin Olive Oil.  Be wary of any suppliers that may advertise Organic Olive Pomace Oil; to be honest, we’re not sure what you’ll be getting!
