We assure that our quality standards that we use for our estate oils is applied in all our flavored olive oils, this is why our flavored olive oils have been recognized for their quality in so many international olive oils competitions. We take no shortcuts in our process, all our flavored olive oils go through rigorous testing to assure we have the necessary polyphenol count we demand, to make them not only extremely flavorful but super healthy as well.
We at Laconiko certify that our olive oil is firstly graded as extra virgin olive oil, made with healthy green olive oil fruit crushed at their peak to maximize
polyphenol content, before our olive oil is flavored.
We use the highest quality oils made from whole fruits/herbs which are cold crushed at their peak and extracted using a centrifuge, the same process used to make our olive oil, before cold fusing/blending them with our awarded extra virgin olive oil.
Advise from an expert Olive Oil Sommelier on what to watch out for:
Many so called Fused or Infused oils in the market use oils made from ad/spoiled olive fruit, sometimes not even olive oil, and flavor them using high temperatures or an untimed right process crushing olive fruit with other fruit/herbs, due to the fact that olive fruit and other types of fruit/herbs being crushed together do not tend to mature or peak at the same time, thus making them unpleasant or defective oils.
Please remember, if an olive oil is flavored, it should be clean in the mouth(not oily tasting) and fresh smelling in the nose. If it does not have those 2 things at least, it is not what you are looking for. If you are looking for a healthy flavored olive oil, look for pepperiness in the olive oil as well.
