On August 16, Extra virgin olive oil producer Bellucci Premium shares how to develop a palate for olive oils following an article that explains its benefits.
According to an article published on August 14th by The Epoch Times titled “How to Develop Your Olive Oil Palate,” the key ingredient that ties Mediterranean dishes together is olive oil. Pastas, pizza and meat dishes all use this natural oil for its flavor and health benefits.
The article explains how olive oil can add substance to dishes due to its natural benefits. Olive oil contains important vitamins and healthy fats. According to the article, “This traditional and natural ingredient completes virtually every Italian dish and is the key to healthy nutrition.”
Choosing the right type of olive oil can be tricky, the article warns. Olive oil can differ based on its origin, texture, flavor and whether or not it’s an organic olive oil. The article states, “As varied as wines, olive oil can be fruity, bitter, light, delicate, strong, or concentrated. They can be peppery or bland, and the texture ranges from thin to thick, greasy or waxy.”
When it comes to choosing olive oil, the article recommends picking extra virgin olive oil, which is the highest quality of olive oil. The article also recommends going for an Italian olive oil. Italian olive oils are considered to be of higher quality due to the climate conditions they are grown in and the fertility of the soil in the region.
“Picking an olive oil has a lot to do with an individual’s preferences,” says Natalie Sexenian, marketing manager for Bellucci Premium. “Before picking an olive oil, research the regions that the olives are grown. Some olives have a peppery hint, while others will have fruity notes. Regardless of the flavor, make sure you pick an extra virgin olive oil. Not only does it provide the best flavor, but it also contains the most health benefits. Extra virgin olive oil can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure, and aid in weight loss.”
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.
