Understanding olive oil
Not all Olive Oil is created equal, regardless of what the packaging says.
The most important factor is understanding how the Olive Oil was obtained from the olive. Virgin olive oil is obtained from the olive only, using solely mechanical or other physical means, in certain thermal conditions, which do not alter the oil in any way. It is pure fruit juice, so to speak.
Refined Olive Oil is obtained by treating low quality or defective virgin olive oil with the use of charcoal and other chemical and physical filters. An obsolete equivalent is "pure olive oil". Though it may be confusing, you should be aware that the term olive oil, when used alone, refers to a blend of refined olive oil and virgin olive oil.
Pukara Estate’s Australian extra virgin olive oils are made from the finest olives, sustainably grown in the Hunter Valley, NSW, Australia. Olives are mechanically harvested at their best and pressed immediately to create fresh, flavoursome and well balanced oils. The oils are stored onsite in a climate controlled storage facility and are bottled on demand to ensure optimal freshness. Our range of Australian Oil offers a unique and versatile way to enhance your favourite dishes.
We are passionate about pure, fresh, Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
