Bellucci Premium shares ways it ensures the authenticity of its extra virgin olive oil in response to an article that sheds light on possible ways to combat olive oil fraud.
According to an October 4th article published by The Olive Oil Times titled "Scientists Pool Expertise in Fight Against Fake Olive Oils," there was a meeting amongst some of the world’s top olive oil verification experts earlier this year. The meeting was geared towards brainstorming solutions to combat olive oil fraud.
A newsletter released after the meeting detailed 3 major issues when it comes to olive oil fraud and standards of quality. The 3 issues listed were "the blending of extra virgin olive oil or virgin olive oil with soft deodorized olive oil, or with other adulterant oils, and the evaluation of quality parameters related to freshness," says the article. Another document released after the workshop said that it can be easy to manipulate or mix oils because most stay within limits and standards of European olive oil.
The article detailed these solutions to help with olive oil fraud:
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
