Best Before : May 2023
Can we consume olive oil past the Best Before date?
- The "best before" date on organic olive oil is a general guideline and not a strict expiration date.
- If stored properly, organic olive oil can retain its freshness and quality for several years after the best before date.
- The strong flavour of organic extra virgin olive oil can help mask any subtle changes in taste or quality that may occur over time.
- Organic olive oil is rich in antioxidants and healthy monounsaturated fats, making it a nutritious addition to the diet even after the best before date.
- As long as the oil has not been exposed to heat, light, or air, it is likely to remain safe for consumption even after the best before date.
- The acidity level of organic olive oil is low, which reduces the risk of spoilage and extends the oil's shelf life.
- Organic olive oil is made from pure, untreated olives, making it less likely to contain harmful chemicals or contaminants.
- The organic production process is subject to strict regulations, ensuring the oil meets high quality standards.
- Unlike conventional olive oil, organic oil is not treated with chemicals or other artificial preservatives, which can extend its shelf life.
- Organic olive oil is stored in dark, airtight containers to prevent oxidation and preserve freshness.

Took me back to the Mediterranean. Best Greek oil and saffron in Singapore.
Love the fresh taste of this first pressed olive oil over my salad. Has a lovely aroma, not too strong .
