Olive Oil Grades

  • Extra-virgin olive oil comes from virgin oil production only, contains no more than 0.8% acidity, and has a superior taste.

  • Virgin olive oil comes from virgin oil production only, has acidity less than 2%, and has a good taste.

  • Pure olive oil is usually a blend of refined and virgin production oil.

  • Refined olive oil is the olive oil obtained from virgin olive oils by refining methods.

  • Olive oil is a blend of virgin and refined production oil, of no more than 1.5% acidity. It lacks a strong flavor.

  • Olive pomace oil is often blended with some virgin oil. It is fit for consumption, but may not be described simply as olive oil.

  • Lampante oil is not suitable for food; lampante comes from olive oil’s long-standing use in oil-burning lamps.
