This ever popular antioxidant powerhouse is loaded with 181 ppm of healthful Oleocanthal which lends this oil its powerful pepperiness. It is unique and complex with tropical fruit characteristics, a sweet berry center and fiery Szechuan peppercorn finish/lingering spicy mouth feel. Low bitterness.
Our partner producer (SAOV) in Portugal is using a high vacuum during malaxation to remove all of the oxygen in this processing stage where the oil spends the most time and is most prone to oxidation. This cutting edge and very technical method preserves the phenolic content, the overall chemistry plus the flavor characteristics while reducing other oxidation markers.
