Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Maison Orphée Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Olive oil is a good source of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, the healthy fats (click here for a quick guide on fats). But, choosing the right olive oil for both cooking and non-cooking uses is important (click here for a quick guide to choosing oils). 

This product from Maison Orphée is an extra virgin olive oil, meaning the oil was pressed out of olive at low temperatures. This cold pressed oil provides a higher amount of flavour and vitamin E in its oil. This is great for both your health and for preserving the oil. However, extra virgin olive oils need to be organic because the non-organic oils contain more pesticides in them. Maison Orphée uses olives from Tunisia, Italy that are grown organically and are gluten and GMO-free. 

Maison Orphée is a offers a line of organic extra virgin olive oils with different flavours such as a more fruity or bitter flavour. You can also download their app which gives you a look at the different flavours they have and suggest different ingredients you can pair them with. All bottles are well tinted to prevent light from oxidizing the oil, keeping it fresh for longer. 


Store in a dark, cool area to keep the oil fresh. This olive oil can last for 18 months.
