How to store olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil is a sensitive product that needs to be stored in ideal conditions, to ensure that you enjoy its full flavour and rich biofunctional components. Useful storage instructions:
- Olive oil should be kept in sealed containers and not come into contact with oxygen.
- Olive oil should not be exposed to sunlight and must be kept in a dry area with limited temperature fluctuation (16-18°C).
- Under ideal circumstances, olive oil will keep perfectly for at least 18 months.
- After opening, olive oil should be consumed within a reasonable time-frame. Therefore it is best to choose small containers, so as to avoid the natural alteration of the product that occurs after opening the container.
