OLIVE OIL IN 5 LITRE AND OTHER SIZES
Although the preferred format for our TRADITIONAL PICUAL Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the 5-litre plastic (pet) bottle, we also pack it in 2.5-litre tins and 500ml glass bottles with non-refillable stoppers. All our packaging is BISPHENOL A (BPA) free. You can select the format that best suits your needs above next to the checkout button. If you want to combine our different types of EVOO (TRADITIONAL, UNFILTERED, ORGANIC), please see our olive oil gift & tasting sets.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL 5 LITRES FOR COOKING
The filtered extra virgin olive oil is free of impurities, so it can be used both raw and for cooking. A “splash” of this juice gives a great taste with a natural hint of bitterness and spiciness that awakens the senses. When used in stir-fries, fried foods and stews, it is an olive oil that “grows” and its high density means that it does not penetrate the food as much as other vegetable oils and fats, so it protects the properties of the food better and transmits fewer calories. It also has a high content of oleic acid and natural antioxidants (vitamin E, oleocanthal, etc.), which gives it greater stability and resistance to high temperatures, producing less smoke and cooking food in a healthier way. For this reason, when using olive oil for frying, we recommend not to exceed 180 ºC.
CONSERVATION AND SHELF LIFE OF EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL 5 LITRES
Extra virgin olive oil is a natural juice, without additives, preservatives or colouring agents. The best before date of consumption of our filtered extra virgin olive oil in 5 litres is 12 to 18 months from the date of bottling in our mill, although if well preserved it can last longer in perfect conditions. For optimum conservation, we recommend keeping it in a cool place (18 to 25 ºC) and away from light (especially sunlight). For example, in a cupboard in your kitchen or storage room, it will keep perfectly and maintain all its properties for many months.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL WITH CERTIFIED QUALITY AND ORIGIN
All our olive trees are exclusively owned by small farmers and are located in a natural high mountain environment in the highest area of the region of Jaén. HIGHER QUALITY certified by the exclusive and award winning Sierra Mágina Denomination of Origin, with the most demanding quality standards in the world.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL WITH MORE FLAVOUR AND NATURAL ANTIOXIDANTS
Extra virgin olive oil freshly bottled and always from the latest harvest. Obtained by mechanical means from high mountain picual olives harvested in the traditional way and cold-pressed at less than 27ºC. Most of our olive trees are centenary, dry-farmed and planted at high altitudes (even above 1,200 metres), which results in a juice with a higher concentration of oleic acid, polyphenols and natural antioxidants beneficial to health, and which are responsible for its delicious, slightly bitter and spicy flavour.
