Think of extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) as the gold medalist in the olive oil Olympics. It's the first one out of the gate, squeezed from the olives on their first press—no chemicals, no defects, just pure, unadulterated olive goodness. "Virgin" olive oil is like the runner-up, coming from the second press. And then there’s "pure" or regular olive oil, which might join the race on the third or even fourth press.

And just for the record, to earn the "extra virgin" title, olive oils must pack at least 55 mg/kg of polyphenols at harvest time. Our EVOO? It's off the charts with over 400 mg/kg. So, we suggest sticking with the champion—extra virgin all the way!

Polyphenols are like the superheroes of the plant world, found lurking in fruits, nuts, seeds, spices, and yes—olives! These mighty molecules battle against villains like aging and chronic diseases, including heart issues, high blood pressure, and even some cancers. Beyond their disease-fighting prowess, polyphenols are also known for their anti-inflammatory superpowers. In fact, just two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil each day might be just what the doctor ordered for a health boost. Want the full scoop on these fantastic compounds? Check out our blog post for more heroic details!

Unfortunately, yes. The olive oil market can sometimes feel like a wild west of labels. Many oils that claim to be “extra virgin” are mixed with other refined oils and don’t meet the high standards they should—like the right polyphenol content or acidity levels. Want to know how to spot the real deal and avoid the fakes?

But don't worry, at Olive & Basket, we ensure every bottle we offer is traceable and pure extra virgin olive oil. You can trust us to bring you the real thing, every time.

Olive oil is like a superhero for your health! It's been shown to lower LDL (the "bad" cholesterol) and boost HDL (the "good" cholesterol) when you use it instead of saturated fats like butter.

Plus, it’s packed with nutrients like beta carotene and vitamins A, E, D, and K, which can positively impact nearly every function of your body.
Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is especially awesome because it has the lowest oxidation rate among cooking oils. This means it keeps its molecular structure stable when heated, minimizing the formation of harmful free radicals—those pesky villains that can damage cells and might lead to diseases, including cancer.

For the best quality, taste, and health benefits, we recommend using your olive oil within 12 months of opening. Keeping it fresh ensures you’re enjoying all the wonderful flavors and benefits it has to offer. So, drizzle away and make the most of it within a year!

Our balsamic vinegar hails from Modena, Italy. Just like Champagne must come from its namesake region in France to earn its title, balsamic vinegar must be made in Modena to be considered authentic. So when you taste our balsamic, you're enjoying a true piece of Italian heritage!

Balsamic vinegar is a powerhouse when it comes to antioxidants, just like extra virgin olive oil. These antioxidants can help protect your body against damage from free radicals, which play a role in heart disease, cancer, and other health conditions. Adding balsamic vinegar to your meals not only enhances the flavor but also boosts your health with every drizzle!

Alongside our Italian balsamic vinegar, we also carry a selection of white wine-based vinegars from Germany. These have a touch of added sugar to enhance their flavor. If you come across a vinegar name in our lineup without 'balsamic' in it, you can bet it's from our carefully selected German collection!

No - it is recommended that balsamic vinegar be stored in a cool, dry place and never in the refrigerator.

If stored in a cool, dry place, balsamic vinegars are usually safe to consume for up to 3 years.

No sugar is added–the sugar content all comes naturally from the fermented grapes.
