Olive oil extra virgin MEDIUM FRUITY - A balanced taste

From December until early March, the sun-ripened olives are harvested and processed using a method known as cold extraction. The fruits come for example from Spain or Portugal. For BIO PLANÈTE Olive Oil Medium Fruity Extra Virgin, we select from a pool of farmers the batches which best meet our strict requirements in respect to quality and taste. On occasion, we carefully blend several charges, to achieve an even better and more balanced taste experience with the resulting »cuvée«.

We recommend this medium fruity olive oil to consumers who prefer the typically fruity and aromatic qualities of an olive oil instead of spicy and bitter characteristics. The tasty and especially balanced olive oil improves typical Mediterranean dishes, such as Caprese salad, ratatouille, or moussaka. Olive oil is regarded as a central component of the so-called Mediterranean diet, in which butter is replaced by olive oil. The consumption of unsaturated instead of saturated fatty acids provably lowers the blood cholesterol level. A high blood cholesterol level is one of the risk factors for coronary heart disease.
Moreover, olive oil can be used for massages, since it conveys a pleasant skin sensation. Mixed in the right proportion with limewater (Ca(OH)2(aq)), it can even be applied in infant care.

Product of organic farming

Fossils tell us that olive trees have existed for as long as 35000 years. This legendary evergreen, silvery leaved tree has to grow for many years before bearing its first fruit and can live for up to 2000 years.

The fruit begins to ripen in December, turning violet and then black before being harvested.

The ripe olives are only harvested between December to March and are processed by the ’maîtres huiliers’ the same day.

The olives are ground to a paste before being placed in a centrifuge, where the simple force of gravity separates the heavier oil from the juice of the olives before it is passed through a paper filter and bottled.

Gourmet Tip

Our olive oil medium fruity (formerly known as “olive oil sélection”) is tasty and well-balanced, it effortlessly adds a mediterranean touch to dishes. Great for ratatouille and zucchini casserole.
