The acidity value reflects the quality of the oil, the olives it was produced from, and can also give an indication of storage and production methods. Oils, which have been produced from poor quality olives, or by the excessive use of heat, will have higher acidity. Acidity test results are displayed as a percentage of free oleic acid present in the oil. For example Extra Virgin Olive Oil must have less than 0.8% acidity to be judged to have a superior taste.
Our oils’ acidity levels for the 2014 Harvest ranges from 0.1%-0.3%
