Bohemia, NY / http://www.myprgenie.com / ACCESSWIRE / May 06, 2014 / Flavor Your Life, a European Union funded campaign that is dedicated to providing the latest in olive oil news, shares information regarding the different taste profiles and colors of Italian olive oil from region to region.
Olive production is extremely widespread throughout the world and is a major aspect of many cultures. For example, in both northern and southern Italy, extra virgin olive oil is a main ingredient used in cooking because of its health benefits, decadent aroma, and rich flavor. It also signifies the historical and cultural importance of the region that it came from.
In addition, each location yields different flavors and colors of oil. A country’s climate, altitude, and surrounding landscape may have a major impact on olive growth. For example, northern and southern Italy is the home to many local varieties of olive oil that are unique tasting and hard to recreate. The uniqueness of Italian extra virgin olive oil is what makes this type of oil so different and flavorful from any other.
The tastes of local extra virgin olive oil can range from delicate and sweet, to fruity and rich. Some olive oils may have a peppery undertone or a rich almond aftertaste. They can carry a freshly cutgrass aroma as well. Olive oil colors may also vary from golden yellow with hues to green and orange tinges. The different flavors and colors of extra virgin olive oil help countries offer high quality products that will be used for years and years to come.
The Flavor Your Life campaign supported by the European Union, Unaprol and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, is dedicated to providing the latest in industry news and health information about European extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil enhances the flavors of your recipes while providing health benefits.
