Flavor Your Life European Olive Oil

IMG_5340

I am Italian! So olive oil has always been a staple in our home. We use it in various ways, but one thing’s for sure- quality is everything. My Grandmother would use olive oil in most of her cooking. That passed down to my Father and then myself. One of my kids’ favorite things is when we have pasta with a fresh baguette and olive oil for dipping… yum!

As a Mom Ambassador for Moms Meet, I recently tried Flavor Your Life European Olive Oil, and I loved it! The Flavor Your Life campaign supported by the European Union, is dedicated to providing the latest  information about European extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil enhances the flavors of your recipes while providing health benefits. Flavor Your Life aims to educate consumers so they can make informed decisions when purchasing olive oil. As I mentioned earlier, quality is what olive oil is all about. I loved the flavor of this oil and it definitely made a difference when cooking with it.

About EVOO

  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is the freshly pressed juice of olives. It is cold pressed, meaning it is pressed without heat or chemicals.
  • Acidity must be below 0.8% or virtually free of acidity. This has nothing to do with the pH or taste, but the % oleic acid (fatty acid). Higher levels indicate improper production and rancidity.
  • Peroxide value must be below 20 millequivalents
    of oxygen/kilo of oil, which indicates the amount of oxidation or aging that’s occurred as a result of exposure to oxygen, light and heat.

Why Choose European? 

 

  • The olive tree has been revered in Europe since Antiquity. Over thousands of years farmers have evolved hundreds of varieties of olive trees (cultivars) and optimized them for different environment conditions and terrains to produce the most delicious yields.
  • The result of this centuries old bond between the people and the land is the nest extra virgin olive in the world.
  • The greatest impact on taste is the type of olive tree (cultivar), region (which affects climate and soil) and time of harvest. Europe offers a vast array of avor pro les, so keep a variety of oils in your pantry for different occasions.
  • Olives harvested early in the season, late August (varies by region), are under-ripe and produce oils that are greener, more bitter and pungent.
  • Olives harvested at the end of the season, late November into December, are over-ripe and tend to taste mild and buttery
