WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO STORE OLIVE OIL?
Olive oil should be stored in a cool, dark place. Properly stored, olive oil can keep for at least two years in an unopened container. Olive oil should not be stored in the refrigerator. If chilled, olive oil will become cloudy and eventually solidify or crystallize. Should this happen, the oil is perfectly fine; just leave the oil at room temperature for a time to restore it to its natural state. Buying olive oil in dark green glass further protects it. The four enemies of olive oil are: air, time, heat, and light.

WHAT IS EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL ? (EVOO)
“Extra Virgin” is the highest grade for olive oil, the best. It is always cold-pressed from the first pressing of the olives. Olive oil may be called Extra Virgin if it has less than 1% free oleic acid, and exhibits superior taste, color and aroma. To be a true Extra Virgin it must pass a chemical and an organoleptic analysis.
HOW LONG DOES OLIVE OIL STAY GOOD?
For optimum taste and health benefits you should use your EVOO for anywhere from 12 and up to 36 months
