Olive oil originates from the Olive tree ‘Olea Eropaea’ native to the Mediterranean, Asia, and Africa. The olive fruit is known as a drupe, similar to that of a peach or plum. It takes around 5kg of Olives to produce 1kg of oil.
HOW IT’S MADE?
The fruit is generally harvested from the tree as soon as it starts turning from yellow to brown in colour. The traditional way of harvesting olives is to shake the tree or beat its branches with sticks to make the olives drop on a net bellow. When collected, the fruit is crushed to a fine paste. This paste is then stirred thoroughly for some time before being placed into a centrifuge. The high centrifugal force created allows the oil and the water to be easily separated because of their different densities.
WHY DO WE USE OLIVE OIL?
