Extra Virgin Olive Oil is very popular for being a fantastic multi-purpose oil. It’s also known to be quite nutritious and is considered to be one of the healthiest fats. While there’s an abundance of olive oils out there, it’s hard finding one that’s high-quality. That’s where Clearspring’s 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes in.
Clearspring Wholefoods 100% Italian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made from two kinds of olives - Dolce di Rossano and Coratina. Dolce di Rossano olives give this oil its mild and fruity notes, while the Coratina gives it its punch. These olives are sourced directly from the Italian regions of Calabria and Puglia, respectively.
The olive oil is drawn out using a centrifugation process called cold extraction. This process separates the wet solids from the oil, which is clarified along the way. Cold extraction is the preferred method for making olive oil because it is cleaner. It also allows for better quality control.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a healthy oil that can be used to drizzle on salads and bread. It can even be used to make a pasta base or to make dips or dressings. Like other oils, it can be used for sautéing and frying.
