Organic Extra Virgin is the highest grade of olive oil, commonly used by food and body care manufacturers in certified organic products. It is ideal for use in organic dressings, sauces, and cooking, or simply enjoyed with a warm, fresh-baked baguette. It is also commonly used in organic skin care products.
How it's made: Special olives are grown using documented organic practices. At harvest time, the olives are picked and washed with cold water. They are ground into paste and spun in a centrifuge which extracts the oil from the olive mixture. It is known as the “first cold press,” though it’s actually spun instead of pressed in most modern systems. This process usually occurs within 24 hours from the time the olives are harvested.
