Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
At D’Olivo, all of our extra virgin olive oils come from the first cold press. This heatless extraction process allows the olive oil to keep all of its beneficial properties, providing the highest quality oil at less than 11% acidity. We also proudly display the ultra-premium label that our EVOOs carry, having gone above and beyond the (International Olive Oil Council) testing standards to ensure our customers are getting nothing less than the highest quality, benefit-rich olive oil.
Olive oil has been a part of healthy Mediterranean diets for thousands of years. As a result, research backed health benefits have been studied by prestigious organizations to ensure accuracy. Read more below to learn about some of the healthy benefits of our EVOOs!
