Organic flavored olive oil is made by infusing high-quality organic olive oil with organic natural flavors. Here's the general process:

1. Start with organic olive oil: The first step is to use extra virgin olive oil as the base flavored olive oil. This ensures that the oil is of high quality and free from any synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.

2. Select natural flavorings: Organic natural flavorings such as herbs, fruits, or spices are selected to infuse the olive oil. These can include ingredients like garlic, rosemary, lemon, or chili peppers. We make Meyer Lemon, Habanero, and Bacon Oil all organic.

Natural flavorings are derived from natural ingredients, such as plants, fruits, or herbs. They are typically obtained through extraction or distillation processes.

On the other hand, artificial flavorings are created using chemicals in a laboratory. These chemicals are designed to mimic the taste and aroma of natural flavors. Artificial flavorings are often used when it is not feasible or cost-effective to use natural ingredients. The difference between natural and artificial flavorings for olive oil lies in the sources of the flavors used.

When it comes to olive oil, natural flavorings are generally preferred because they are perceived to be more authentic and healthier. However, it's important to note that the term "natural" is not regulated or standardized, so it's always a good idea to check the label or contact the producer directly to ensure the quality and authenticity of the flavored olive oil.

3. Infusion process: The selected flavorings are added to the olive oil in a controlled manner. This can be done by gently heating the oil and adding the flavorings, or by allowing the oil to sit with the flavorings for a certain period of time. This process allows the flavors to be transferred to the oil.

4. Straining and bottling: After the desired infusion time, the oil is strained to remove the flavorings and ensure a smooth texture. The flavored olive oil is then bottled and sealed.

It's worth noting that the specific methods and ingredients used may vary among producers. We take pride in our deep, rich flavors and quality organic natural flavoring.
