The world’s largest producer of olive oil is Spain, followed by Italy. The biggest oil reserves in the world are located in Andalusia (Olive Oil, of course!). The autochthonous varieties in those areas tend to get harvested early and are often marketed as ‘early harvest’. The difference between early harvested oils and late harvest oils is that the former tends to have a stronger taste than the late harvest ones.
Most available oils on the market have this strong taste. Our oil however comes from late harvested olives, so mild that some people think it is seed oil. One of the best things about it is that you can use it instead of butter for baking!
At Teruel Foods, we prefer an olive oil that doesn’t mask any other flavour from the other ingredients. If that’s what you like, that’s what you’ll get from us.
