Due to its nutritional value and adaptability in the kitchen, olive oil has long been considered a valuable commodity. But how do you know which olive oil is the best?
Es importante que el aceite de oliva sea virgen extra, lo que significa que se ha obtenido únicamente por medios mecánicos, sin el uso de disolventes químicos.
It must have a degree of acidity of less than 0.8%, which shows that great care has been taken in the quality of the olives and their processing.
The best olive oil should have a fresh, fruity smell with herbal notes and a slight sting in the throat. Its flavor must be balanced, with a mild bitterness and a touch of sweetness that leaves a pleasant sensation on the palate.
The texture of the oil is also important. The best olive oil should have a smooth, fluid consistency, neither too thick nor too light, showing that it has been carefully extracted and filtered.
Proper storage of olive oil is essential to preserve its quality. It should be stored in a cool, dark place, away from light and heat, thus avoiding oxidation and preserving its flavor and aroma.
