Extra Virgin Olive Oils can be divided into three (3) main overall taste groupings of Mild, Medium, and Robust. When evaluated by "certified tasters" they are also awarded scores in 3 additional categories: "Fruitiness, Bitterness and Pungency". Additionally, laboratory tests are performed to determine if an oil meets specification standards (our oils are required by our importer to meet "Ultra Premium Standards", which are much higher and more discriminating than the International Olive Oil Council [IOOC] standards typically used worldwide. Our EVOOs are evaluated by the global leader in testing, which is located in Australia, and these scores, as well as the olive type, crush date, country of origin and taste panel scores are all noted on tags when visiting our store. The Mild-Medium-Robust groupings can be generalized as based upon intensity of flavor and the overall polyphenol (antioxidant) content. Typically as the polyphenol count rises the oil is considered to be more robust in taste because these healthy antioxidants exhibit themselves as a "peppery tickle" on the back of the throat when swallowed. The oils rated "mild" will have the least amount of pepper. As previously alluded to, the overall taste is also greatly influenced by such factors as the type of olive (cultivar), the soil, climate, growing conditions, harvest timing, crushing timing, procedures during the crushing, etc. These factors also influence the lab specifications of note such as oleic acid, peroxide value and fruit fatty acid content, as well as scores on the DAG and PPP tests, which are used to determine oil quality. At Olive Our Best, you will find rotating award winning oils from Northern Hemisphere countries like Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece, and Southern Hemisphere countries such as Chile, Australia, South Africa and Peru.
