FAQ

Can you cook or fry with olive oil?

Definitely.  Our EVOO is low in free fatty acids, which results in a higher smoke point.  To get the most health benefits of your EVOO, choose one that is high in polyphenols (antioxidants) when cooking at higher temperatures.  See article below:

How should I store my olive oil and balsamic vinegar?

They should be stored in a cool dark place such as your pantry or cabinet.  It is important to keep olive oil away from light or UV rays to retain the highest health benefits.  This is the reason our bottles are a dark color.  Olive oil should never be stored in clear containers.   Balsamic vinegar’s shelf life is indefinite.  Vinegar is self-preserving due to its acidic nature.
