About Extra Virgin Olive oil Infused with Chili Organic

When the refined taste of high quality organic extra virgin olive oil is enriched with herbs and spices of organic farming and other distinctive tastes of the Cretan and Mediterranean cuisine, the result is fascinating.

This aromatic olive oil contains only the natural spice in the bottle without additives or artificial aromas. With rich natural aroma and velvety texture, this aromatic olive oil will give the ideal refinement to your cooking.

Add them to your salads, grilled vegetables, roast meat or fish and let them spice up & lift off your dishes.

Storage and shelf life

Store olive oil in a cool, dry, tinted airtight glass container or nonreactive metal container, away from the sunlight and heat.

Olive oil, when properly stored, will retain its flavor and aroma for 12-18 months from the packaging date. After that, remains edible but after a point will become rancid and lose any nutritional value and antioxidants and definitely will add a weird smell to your food.

So, your olive oil went rancid. Now what? Whatever you do, don’t pour it—or any cooking oil, for that matter—down the drain. This can clog your pipes and city sewer mains, and eventually pollute waterways. It also can’t be composted. The best practice is to transfer the spoiled olive oil to a nonrecyclable container (like a cardboard milk carton or takeout container) and throw it in the trash.

Other interesting information

In the Greek tradition, when a child is born, an olive tree will be planted. The olive tree and the child will grow together and when the child will become 6 years old, the olive tree will give its first fruits. It will grow with the family, survive through decades, and will still be there for all the coming generations to always remind us the continuity and the evolution of life. Goddess Athena bestowed two sacred gifts to the ancient city of Athens: the olive tree and her name.

Olive oil has long been considered sacred. The purity of olive oil, and the clear, soft light it casts, and its inoffensive odor when burned, has made it a natural choice for religious rituals since ancient times, and until today. Ancient Greeks anointed kings with olive oil. The lamps that illuminated ancient shrines burned olive oil. Olive twigs were twined into wreaths crowning winners in athletic games, victorious warriors returning home, and distinguished citizens of any stripe. Those ancient trees’ trunks split over the centuries, but still produce a harvest of fruit every year.

The expected life of an olive tree is 300 to 600 years, yet there are olive trees more than 1,000 years old. The history of the olive tree began around 7.000 years ago in the Mediterranean region and more precisely in the Eastern Mediterranean. It is speculated that it first appeared in Syria, as indicated by various depictions on vessels and by the multitude of myths of the people around the Mediterranean. It was Greece however, through Phoenician merchants, who brought it in the European Mediterranean area- Italy, France, Spain, Portugal- from where it spread to America and Australia.
Tasty & fresh
We maintain a close relationship with our producers and have visited their land and observed the whole process of making the olive oil. Besides that though, we obtain certificates of chemical analysis and organoleptic evaluation for each batch, which outline the results of testing for acidity (one of the most important parameters in EVOO quality) and other relevant parameters like oleacein, oleocanthal, peroxide value, K 232, K268. We review these documents every time and ensure that they meet our standards. The levels of oleacein and oleocanthal that are the polyphenols that mainly give EVOO its health benefits are consistently the last years much higher than the average. These documents are readily available. Feel free to ask for them via email or at our physical store.

Local
Unfortunately, there is no EVOO production in the Netherlands, but it does come from EU. Our extra virgin olive oil comes from the island of Crete in Greece, where there is an ancient tradition of making olive oil.

Producer's impact
Our producers are all small batch olive tree growers in the region of Heraklion in Crete. They have been taking care of the land and the trees for generations and have a love and passion for olives. They collect the olives by hand themselves and use organic farming techniques, which are much more sustainable than conventional, leading not only to higher quality olive oil but more environment friendly water and ground management.
