When it comes to choosing olive oil, there are many choices. Let's explore some of the differences between single origin olive oils and blended oils.
Single Origin Olive Oil
Single origin olive oil is produced from olives grown in a specific geographic region. It features the unique characteristics of the land, climate, and soil, which influence the flavor profile of the oil. Single origin olive oils are also the purest and healthiest form of olive oil. They are never mixed with older olive oils or other oils.
The appeal of single origin olive oil lies in its distinctiveness. Each bottle of single origin olive oil tells a story of a particular place. This can be especially appealing to connoisseurs and food enthusiasts who appreciate the many different flavors.
Blended Olive Oils
Blended olive oils are created by combining olive oils harvested from different regions and at different times. Typically, old olive oil is added to blended oils. This results in lower quality olive oil in terms of taste and health benefits.
We highly recommend always choosing a single origin olive oil to ensure the highest quality taste and health benefits. Choosing single origin olive oils also allows for full transparency of when and where the olives were harvested and the oil was created.
