Storing Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Food storage in the kitchen is very important. When it is well done it is possible to preserve the taste and flavor of our dishes.

Extra virgin olive oil it is very important in the preparation of all dishes in the kitchen, therefore it is very important how it is stored so that it does not lose flavor, taste and aroma.

Other prevailing tastes

Bitter and spicy, these flavors are perceived by tasting it and can vary depending on the phenolic component of the oil, antioxidants. They are the same antioxidants that protect our body from cardiovascular disease.

I recommend, be careful, because if the extra virgin olive oil is not perfectly preserved it would lose all its qualities.

Let's keep it right

Never store it in clear bottles, it is essential to protect it from direct sunlight, always use darkened bottles. Never use plastic bottles, it would reduce its duration.

Stainless steel containers are the best. Store it in a cool and dry place at a temperature of 15 degrees around.

Other precautions

Always plug your oil. The Parfums, aromatic substances are volatile, therefore they would be lost if you leave your container uncapped.

Last but not least is to always check the deadline.
