Description of Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 8.5 oz, Flora Health
Flora Organic Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
- Providing omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids.
- A bold fruity taste that finishes smooth with a slight hint of pepper. Ideal for drizzling on ripe tomatoes or fresh baked bread, and the perfect companion for organic salad greens.
Pure, unfiltered, and unrefined Flora™ Culinary Oils are some of the finest organic oils in the world. Their sublime flavor and exceptional quality come from a variety of techniques derived from Old World European pressing methods.
Certified organic seeds and nuts are lightly toasted. Then, our proprietary Hydro-Therm™ process employing gentle, low-temperatures, uses sea salt and cool, filtered water to protect and ensure a full spectrum of omega fatty acids. The result is a more savory tasting oil than we could otherwise achieve.
To maintain peak nutritional value and prevent oxidation, all Flora™ oils are nitrogen flushed and packaged in light-resistant dark glass bottles.
Flora™ Culinary Oils provide your body with healthful foundational fats. It's important to note that our bodies require different types of fat for optimal health. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are considered essential fatty acids (EFAs) because they cannot be manufactured in the human body. They must be obtained through dietary sources.
