So What’s so Hot about EVOO?
The High Smoke Point!
Unlike other potentially toxic cooking oils, Forest Edge EVOO has a high smoke point ranging between 200°C and 215°C, which is above the the normally used cooking temperature.
What makes Forest Edge EVOO have a high smoke point?
Our EVOO high smoke point is due to the extremely low free fatty acid content from our healthy Frantoio organic olive fruit.
Free fatty acids (FFA) are produced by the hydrolysis of oils and fats. The level of FFA depends on time, temperature and moisture content because the oils and fats are exposed to various environments such as storage, processing, heating or frying. Since FFA are less stable than neutral oil, they are more prone to oxidation and to turning rancid. Thus, FFA is a key feature linked with the quality and commercial value of all oils and fats.
