Olitalia Pomace Olive Oil
Olive pomace oil is olive oil that is extracted from olive pulp after the first press. Oil consisting of a blend of refined olive-pomace oil and virgin olive oils fit for consumption as they are.
It has a free acidity, expressed as oleic acid, of not more than 1 gram per 100 grams. Once the mechanical oil extraction of olive oil is complete, approximately 5–8% of the oil remains in the pulp, which then needs to be extracted with the help of solvents, an industrial technique used in the production of most other edible oils including canola, peanut, sunflower, etc.
Although the oil extracted in this manner is still olive oil, at retail it may not simply be called “olive oil”
