On August 14, Following an article by Yahoo! Shine, Bellucci Premium shares tips for purchasing quality olive oil and comments on the distinguishing factors between different varieties of olive oil.
According to an August 12th article published by Yahoo! Shine titled “What You Need to Know Before Buying Olive Oil,” many consumers simply purchase olive oil based on the price or popularity. In reality, there are many factors that should be considered when purchasing olive oil like the grade.
Due to labeling fraud within the industry, it is important to understand what is in a bottle of olive oil. The article states that “A widely cited study of supermarket extra-virgin olive oils led by Dan Flynn, executive director of the UC Davis Olive Center, found that 69 percent of the oils tested were flawed and did not meet the criteria for the extra-virgin grade.” Understanding what constitutes a good extra virgin olive oil will help a consumer in the purchasing process.
The article shares these 5 tips on how to properly identify a good extra virgin olive oil:
“Here at Bellucci Premium, we take all of these factors into account when putting our product on shelves,” says Sexenian. “We display the harvest date on the back of a dark bottle. We also allow our customers to track where the olives in their bottle of olive oil came from with our traceability app. This assures our customers that they are getting exactly what they expect - premium extra virgin olive oil.”
