myths and facts olive oil color

Myth - The bright green color is a sign of superior quality olive oil.

Fact – Color does not determine quality. The color of an olive oil may range from golden yellow to deep green and largely depends on the variety of fruit, the amount of chlorophyll and other pigments, as well as factors related to the production process. That is why the organoleptic evaluation uses the special blue glasses so that the color does not affect the judgment of the evaluator.
