The Characteristics Which Define Morocco Olive Oil

by Abelson Williams Sales Executive

Cooking oils are an important ingredient in a kitchen, but there is conflicting knowledge regarding how healthy each oil is. There are so many oils in the kitchen shelves – coconut to olive, rapeseed to avocado, canola to vegetable, etc. But how to distinguish which one is beneficial for health or which should be completely avoided.

Oils usually get their names from the seed, nuts, fruits, trees, or cereals from which they are extracted, either by the method of pressing or crushing or processing. The fat content, including mono-saturated fat, saturated fat, and polyunsaturated fat, is characterized.

There have been many types of research that indicate more the food containing mono-saturated and polyunsaturated fats intake is done; there is a lower risk regarding cardiovascular diseases. Hence it is recommended to replace the sources of unsaturated fats with polyunsaturated fat, which are primarily plant-based or nut-based. There has also been observed when saturated fat is replaced with the best olive oil; it lowers the risk of heart diseases.

Olive oil can substitute dairy products like margarine, butter, mayonnaise, and other dairy fat products, which will reduce the risk by five to seven percent. The benefits of olive oil can be partly being attributed to its mono-saturated fatty acids, which contain different kinds of minerals and vitamins, polyphenols, and micronutrients derived from plants. Olive oil not only adds the above nutrients but also replacing the unhealthier fats.

The Moroccan Olive Industry is working hard to increase the Morocco olive oil production and make it one of the best olive oils available in the market. They are especially working for the extra virgin olive oil since it has its own significance in the international food market and is the most preferred cooking oil in the kitchen.

To create extra virgin olive oil, they have to meet certain chemical and sensory criteria standards. The International Olive Council sets these standards. As per them, the oil must be free from any kind of taste defect determined by the sensory panel who are trained as per the council standards.

The council designed the tests to check the following – the condition of fruit, harvesting operation standards, the storage standards where the fruit and nuts and the processed bottles are stored, the deterioration due to aging, or due to poor storage. If any of these issues are found, then the oil will not be of extra virgin quality. In short, the extra virgin olive oil is the highest graded among the olive oils.

The final thought!

The next highest-grade olive oil is virgin olive oil. Like extra virgin olive oil, this is also unrefined oil but has a slightly higher acidity level. It can be used in similar kinds of dishes where extra virgin olive oil is used, and it comparatively affordable than the extra virgin variety. The last grade is pure or refined olive oil, which is plainly labeled as olive oil. These oils undergo processing or chemical treatment, which are usually mixed with virgin oil at the end. Compared to virgin oil varieties, this refined oil is lighter in flavor.
