The unfavorable conditions of preservation of olive oil quality is affected. The most important alteration is the oxidation, that is, the rancidity. The main factors that favor this alteration are oxygen, light, contact with certain metals and free fatty acids. Our company uses glass containers and tin cans because these materials allow greater stability of the organoleptic characteristics. The bottles are also in dark green glass so as to hinder the penetration of light and protect the oil from ultraviolet radiation.
However, it is also necessary that the customer follow some details:
- the temperature from 10 to 20 degrees is considered ideal for storage, avoid freeze oil or expose it to high temperatures;
- sunlight, direct or diffuse, accelerates oxidation, so it is best to place their stock in a dark place;
- it is good practice to always keep the container sealed because there are insects that are home greedy oil;
- do not recommend pouring the product, if not for immediate use in transparent oil bottles, crystal or the like, since it would be less protected than in special cans and green glass bottles.
