Extra virgin olive oils are very different from refined grades of olive oil – such as “light” or “pure” oils – which are made using heat or chemicals. Extra virgin olive oil, by contrast, essentially is freshly pressed fruit juice. They crush the olives and extract the oil using only mechanical methods, never using any high heat or solvents. All of their oils at California Olive Ranch are certified extra virgin by the California Olive Oil Council (COOC), passing both rigid chemical and sensory evaluations. Their extra virgin olive oils are also verified non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project, as well as certified kosher by Orthodox Union.
