Fruit Infused Olive Oil
At Olive Tree And Vine, we are proud that our imported fruit infused oil collection which is currently comprised of UP Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain, complies with European Union Integrated Ecological Production Regulations for Multi-residual Analysis (Chemical Residue).
Not only do our oils comply with the strict standards of the EU for residue allowance in olive including pesticides and fertilizers, our oils were tested to have under 0.010 mg./kg. (equipment qualification limit (Triple-Quadrupole Gas Chromatograph) In other words our oils were tested to have no traces of any chemicals (fertilizers or pesticides) associated with agricultural production.
To ensure the highest level of quality infused olive oil is achieved, the highest quality fruit must be grown and the highest quality production processes utilized throughout the milling facility from beginning to end. These production requirements are based on prior results and therefore represent a set of best practices and guidelines for the farmer. The proof of these processes should be, but is not always, evident in the sensory and chemical analyses of the resulting olive oil.
