What Are The Varieties Of Olive Oil?
Although there are many kinds of olive oil, the oils are divided according to the form of production and quality. The most well-known and most consumed oil varieties worldwide are natural, refined and riviera varieties. Olive oil has been a product used for thousands of years both in Turkey and in the world thanks to its high nutritional value and longevity. The quality and flavor of olive oil depends on the type of olives used, the conditions of cultivation and the production techniques. High acidity level in oils is one of the most important factors affecting oil quality. Extra virgin oils, which have little acidity and are considered pure, are not suitable for use in recipes that require high temperatures, such as frying, as they have low combustion temperatures. For this reason, it is more accurate to use oils with high acidity or oils with increased combustion temperature(riviera) in recipes that you will cook at a high temperature.
