The Olive oil: today we talk about Blend

As blend we mean a combination of extra virgin olive oils, each with a clear identity. Their mixing is carried out to obtain a balanced and harmonious product that is specifically created to be unique, peculiar and to be appreciated by the customer. Blends are created for various reasons: to satisfy specific trends in taste (we then have a variety of flavours such as“sweet”, smooth, full-bodied or delicate); in relation to a future consumption trend (for example an oil with stronger flavour and aroma or an oil with both a persistent and clear bitter and spicy flavours); to adapt the oil to the specific culinary needs.

The Blend is one of the most complex and sensitive issues of the oil production sector; to explore other themes and specific terms please visit our Glossary page of Santagata 1907.
