Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Dorica Glass Bottle
500ml, 250ml

Organic or “bio” olive oil, produced from olives grown using organic farming practices, offers several advantages:
Reduced Chemical Exposure: Organic olive oil is produced without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. This means that consumers are less likely to be exposed to potentially harmful chemicals commonly used in conventional agriculture.

Environmental Sustainability: Organic farming practices promote soil health, biodiversity, and long-term sustainability. By avoiding synthetic chemicals, organic olive oil production helps protect ecosystems, reduce pollution, and preserve natural resources such as water and soil.

Health Benefits: Organic olive oil may contain higher levels of beneficial compounds such as antioxidants, polyphenols, and vitamin E compared to conventionally produced oils. These compounds contribute to the oil’s antioxidant properties and potential health benefits.

Improved Soil Quality: Organic farming practices, such as crop rotation, composting, and the use of cover crops, help improve soil fertility and structure over time. Healthy soils support better plant growth and contribute to the overall health of the olive trees, resulting in higher-quality olives and oil.

Biodiversity Conservation: Organic farms often maintain higher levels of biodiversity compared to conventional farms. By avoiding synthetic chemicals and promoting habitat diversity, organic olive oil production helps support a variety of plant and animal species, including beneficial insects and pollinators.

Transparency and Traceability: Organic certification requires strict adherence to organic farming standards and regulations. As a result, consumers can have greater confidence in the quality and authenticity of organic olive oil, knowing that it has undergone rigorous testing and certification processes.

Overall, organic olive oil offers not only health benefits but also environmental and social advantages by promoting sustainable agricultural practices, reducing chemical exposure, and supporting biodiversity conservation.

Early Harvest

High Polyphenols

Higher Antioxidant Content: Early harvest olive oils are typically richer in antioxidants such as polyphenols, tocopherols (vitamin E), and phenolic compounds. These antioxidants offer numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation and protecting against oxidative damage.
Enhanced Flavor Profile: Olives harvested early in the season tend to have a more robust and peppery flavor profile compared to olives harvested later. This results in early harvest olive oils often having a more complex and vibrant taste, with notes of green grass, herbs, and fresh fruit.
Increased Stability: The higher levels of antioxidants in early harvest olive oils contribute to increased stability and longer shelf life. These antioxidants help protect the oil from oxidation, preserving its quality and freshness over time.
Lower Acidity: Early harvest olives typically have lower acidity levels compared to olives harvested later in the season. Lower acidity levels are often associated with higher quality olive oils and a smoother, more balanced flavor.
Health Benefits: Due to their higher antioxidant content and lower acidity, early harvest olive oils may offer enhanced health benefits, including cardiovascular protection, anti-inflammatory effects, and potential cancer-fighting properties.
Sustainability: Harvesting olives earlier in the season can help ensure the sustainability of olive groves by reducing the risk of overripe or damaged fruit.
Early harvesting also promotes healthier trees and can contribute to more sustainable agricultural practices. Overall, early harvest olive oils offer superior quality, flavor, and health benefits compared to oils produced from olives harvested later in the season. They are prized by chefs, food enthusiasts, and health-conscious consumers alike for their exceptional taste and nutritional value.
