Medium Extra Virgin Olive Oils

Medium Extra Virgin Olive Oils

Medium intensity olive oils offer mid-range levels of two desirable olive oil flavour attributes: bitterness and pungency. These two characteristics attest to the youth and health of the olive, as well as to the levels of anti-oxidants in the oil. Bitterness and pungency, although not common characteristics of mass-market olive oil are traits considered highly desirable by professional olive oil tasters, as they are one indication of the quality of an olive oil. Medium intensity olive oils make great finishing oils on stronger flavoured foods, such as garlic, salmon or pesto. Their higher levels of anti-oxidants means they are more suitable than mild oils for cooking at moderate or higher temperatures. ALL OUR EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OILS ARE ULTRA PREMIUM (UP) CERTIFIED
