Olive oil is one of the most versatile substances on the planet. Besides its many nutritional benefits, it can be used in non-edible applications such as makeshift wood polish and skincare. But did you know that the type of container it comes in can have a drastic impact on its quality? This is just one of the common mistakes other people make with EVOO (extra virgin olive oil).
To address the storage issue, this article outlines the best way to keep it from going rancid. Since sunlight (in addition to oxygen) are the main culprits, it’s best to store olive oil in green glass bottles. Avoid plastic or clear containers, and be sure not to keep it anywhere near heat (including windows). Olive oil needs to be kept cool so that the antioxidants in it do not break down.
What about color? The experts stress that judging EVOO based on its hue is not the way to size it up. After all, the color has more to do with when the olive oil was harvested, not its quality. Get the rest of the advice here.
