Olive Oil Storing

Extra virgin olive oil is a healthy fat and naturally loaded with antioxidants when it’s of good quality.
In order to keep your olive oil at its best, it is very important to handle and store it properly. 
The three key enemies of extra virgin olive oil are heat, light, and air. Limit exposure to all three of these and your olive oil can keep well for up to two years in the original sealed package. 
That's why we bottled in dark-colored glass to prevent ultraviolet rays from penetrating the bottle. Long-term exposure to light can affect flavor,  so store EVOO in a dark cupboard or cabinet to prevent oxidation.
Store our extra virgin olive oil in a cool, dark place such as a cupboard or pantry. Please avoid storing  EVOO next to or above the stove where heat will affect.

Refrigeration can cause olive oil to become cloudy and solidify, but this will not affect the quality or flavor. Once the oil is brought back to room temperature, it will return to its normal consistency and color.

Keep the cap securely closed when not in use.  Allowing continuous exposure to air will promote oxidation that leads to rancidity.
