The Peranzana harvest is still mostly done by hand, with the help of pneumatic combs that can achieve a better productivity.

Harvesting with nets is also a method that is still applied and the 'cold' pressing of the oil enhances its natural, fresh taste.

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil - What is it and how is it produced?

Choosing an organic extra virgin olive oil of 100% Italian origin means supporting local producers, the economy of the land, and above all consuming a certified healthy product.

Talking about organic oil means referring to agricultural production and cultivation methods that use only naturally occurring substances.

With regard to extra virgin olive oil, in particular, the soil must be preserved, avoiding the use of chemical fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides, preferring instead organic products.

The use of such substances is strictly forbidden, as it can cause serious alterations to the natural habitat and adversely affect the genuineness of the food.

To embrace this production method means developing a production model that avoids over-exploitation of natural resources, following the above principles instead:

- Absence of fertilisers, herbicides, insecticides and all petroleum-derived products

- Use of plants that are resistant and can be adapted to the land

- Use of organic-based fertilisers to improve soil potential

- Plant protection based on prevention and respect for the environment

The advantages of organic farming are countless, and benefit both our land and consumers.

According to EC Regulation 1019-2002, organic extra virgin olive oil is obtained, as with conventional production, exclusively from olives and only by mechanical means, i.e. by pressing olives exclusively.

This is also confirmed by Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011, according to which the label of an organic extra virgin olive oil must state 'superior category olive oil obtained directly from olives and solely by mechanical means'.

The Importance of Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Our Diet

Extra virgin olive oil plays an important role in maintaining good health, especially in children, as it contributes to the proper growth of bones, the nervous system, and also the brain.

Scientific studies show that the consumption of extra virgin olive oil in the daily diet contributes to the reduction of 'bad' (LDL) cholesterol in the blood, the maintenance of the blood content of 'good' (HDL) cholesterol, the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and the protection of the body against coronary heart disease due to the powerful antioxidants it contains.

Organic extra virgin olive oil is indeed a source of vitamins A, B and E and, being extracted cold, is rich in oleic acid, with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, as a result of its high polyphenol content.

It also improves the body's 'absorption of calcium, the regulation of blood sugar and is essential for the proper functioning of the intestines.

At the same time, it has a protective effect against the onset of cancer and skin diseases.

This is why our Orolive oil is more than just a condiment: it is a true elixir of health.

Chemical composition of olive oil:

Acidity is one of the most important indicators of the quality of olives, and is generated as a result of the degradation of the fruit: poorly preserved or unhealthy olives generate oils with higher acidity values than those obtained from healthy olives.

According to the law, the degree of acidity of an Italian extra virgin olive oil may not be higher than 0.8%, but in a top quality product, the values are much lower, reaching a maximum of 0.5%.

Also of importance is the peroxide number, as it provides us with information about the ageing of the product.

Peroxides, in fact, indicate an oxidative alteration, which is responsible for the degradation of many substances that are essential for our health, including vitamins and polyphenols.

The maximum limit of peroxides is set at 20 mEq active O2/kg of oil, above which the oil is classified as lampante, meaning low quality.

Stylish Bottles: The Packaging

Aesthetics is one more aspect that we pay special attention to.

Orolive's bottles are designer objects, designed to enhance the quality of our oil and make it a perfect gift for any occasion, be it a personal or corporate gift.

Our packaging is completely eco-friendly and biodegradable, in other words, made of materials that allow them to be quickly discarded without side effects on the ecosystem.

In addition to aesthetics, our packaging also performs a very important function with regard to the preservation of the oil itself. For example, our 3 litre Bag in Box was conceived and designed precisely with this principle in mind;

It is an innovative packaging, designed and developed to improve the preservation of the oil. It consists of a paperboard container that encloses and protects a polyethylene bag used for preservation; this is an extremely high-quality material that does not interfere in any way with the nature of the product stored inside.

Outside the bag there is a tap that comes out of the container through a special opening and regulates the exit of the oil, avoiding direct contact with the air. 

By doing so, the risk of oxidation of the product is avoided and its shelf life, as well as its quality, is extended.

The bag is filled to its maximum capacity and does not permit contact of the contained liquid with external agents (especially air, which would interfere with the composition of the product itself).
