Organic Green Olive Oil
Organic green oil
The authentic green oil maintains all its flavor, aroma and body because the process is carried out by a cold extraction process where, in addition, the oil is not filtered or refined.
It retains a slightly spicy touch in the mouth, characteristic of extra virgin olive oil, due to its high concentration of polyphenols and natural antioxidants.
This shade is an indicator of its quality and high stability, since it protects it from its autoxidation and provides more beneficial effects for health.
At Grenade Olive Oil, we also work under the parameters of organic farming. We are what we eat, and that is our dogma that we try to transfer to our products.
We limit annual production to ensure maximum product quality.
What is green oil?
Green olive oil is a type of olive oil that is collected earlier, in an early harvest, where the ripening process has not started and has been extracted with mainly green olives and, therefore, its chlorophyll content is higher. .
As the olives are at an early stage of maturation, the tree is at the beginning of the lipogenesis process, a process by which the olive tree produces oil that accumulates in the fruits. At this early stage, the percentage of oil contained in each olive is around 10 %-12% compared to the 20 %-22% that a fully ripe olive can contain.
Is green olive oil of worse quality than gold?
No, in fact, we could say otherwise. It has different nuances, aromas and flavors. It also has healthy characteristics derived from its high content of polyphenols, which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The green oil is extracted from olives that are not quite ripe, hence its intense color and unique properties.
