This oil can be called a fresh juice of the olives. It is obtained by pressing olives exclusively by mechanical means, without the use of chemical and biochemical additives. During the production, olives are not subjected to any processing, except for washing. Also they are collected and processed within 24 hours. That is why this type of oil has such a high nutritional value and does not lose it for up to two years. This oil can't be cheap. The acidity of Extra Virgin oil should not exceed 0.8%. The taste of Extra Virgin depends on the variety of olives, but at the same time it is necessarily bitter.
Olive oil with the Bío or Eco badge is produced in compliance with EU Regulation 834/07, which certifies and controls all phases of the production of this alimentary product. The use of synthetic chemicals and genetically modified organisms is prohibited during all stages of the production process. Also, the cultivation of the soil, the olive trees themselves and the fruits of it is carried out only with the use of organic substances and natural materials. This is monitored by a special independent commission of experts. Oils of the DOP, IGP, Bío and Eco class are very rare, they are very expensive, you can buy them in gourmet stores. In Russia, you can often find fake olive oil marked as Bío. Be careful, since manufacturers in Russia do not bear any responsibility for the careless application of the word. To verify the authenticity of the oil, look for a special holographic seal on the back of the label and ask for a certificate of origin.

This is a second-pressed olive oil. The process is identical to the one of obtaining any other vegetable oil. It includes organic solvents and high temperature.

After extraction, the resulting oil is refined and mixed with Extra Virgin to improve the taste and aroma and improve the quality of the final product.
