DOUBTS AND POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENTS IN OLIVE OIL LABELING
06 ago. 2020
In July 2019, the Mercacei Magazine (specialized in the olive sector) published news referring to an academic study, signed by M. Parras Rosa in collaboration with the University of Jaén, which stated the following: "It is evident that consumers are not familiar with the different Olive Oils available in the market, and even less aware of the differences between them." This is undoubtedly an apparent contradiction in the leading country of Olive Oil production.
Olive Oil is the blend of Refined Olive Oil with a smaller portion (10%-20%) of Virgin Olive Oil. However, to provide a thorough explanation, it is necessary to introduce the origins of the blend that constitutes this oil.
When the olive harvest takes place, not all the fruit obtained is suitable for producing Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Virgin Olive Oil. There is a high percentage of olives that are of poor quality due to various factors: being bruised, fallen to the ground, damaged by pests or weather agents, overripe, etc. These low-quality olives undergo their own process at the mill, from which we obtain another type of oil: Lampante Olive Oil.
