Olives in Nudo's flavored oils come from the village of Moscufo in Abruzzo. The village is within the Apruntino-Pescarese DOP region, which means that production and authenticity are under strict legal control. In fact, this was the first DOP (Denominazione di Origine Protetta) oil in Europe ever.
All Nudo's olive oils are extra virgin - from the first cold pressing. Oils with this name are of the highest quality and with the best taste.
What does Extra Virgin mean?
Extra virgin means that the oil has the lowest possible acid content - less than 0.8% and the highest proportion of polyphenols, which are the antioxidants that are so beneficial to health.
What does First Cold Pressing Mean?
First cold pressing means that the olive oil is pressed without the use of heat and that there is only olive oil in production from the first pressing. Many producers press the same olives several times, as well as use heat to extract more oil. This means that the olive oil extracted is of lower quality.
Nudo never uses this method.
For dressings - here always use cold pressed oils, marinades, as flavor enhancers for a meal - the oil is dripped over the food eg. the freshly cooked pasta, salads, mozzarella - like dipping into bread.
Very nice for the kitchen in the office. To give the pasta salad, sandwich or lunch box extra spice.
The olive oil is packed in cans to protect it from sunlight. This maintains quality and avoids harshness. The packaging is chosen with care for the environment. The can is 57% recyclable and weighs less than glass. The shipment is therefore more climate and CO2 friendly.
Beautiful metal box - so nice in any kitchen ..
