How to Get the Best Real-Deal Olive Oil
Olive oil—it’s one of the healthiest fats on the planet, the backbone of the celebrated Mediterranean diet. But it’s also been the cause of controversy over authenticity—that is, it can be hard to know what’s truly good-quality olive oil, no matter what the price tag.
That’s why we love Cobram Estate. Founded by two farmers, this company has the olive oil game sown up (sorry). The company has its own nursery facilities, so they raise the olive trees from seedlings with great love and care. With groves in Australia and California, they have two harvest seasons each year. And they press the olives within 4 hours of picking them. The result? The freshest olive oil in your bottle.
Speaking of the bottle, even that is designed with care, with a pop-up spout that makes pouring clean and easy.
Did we mention how amazing their oils taste? Industry standards dictate that extra virgin olive oil has an acidity below 0.8%; Cobram Estate’s is below 0.3% (and in this case, less is much more). Since the olives are so healthy, so is the oil—it’s loaded with polyphenols, so you get an antioxidant punch in your oil along with the rich flavor.
Don’t take our word for it: Cobram has racked up accolades including Best in Class 2018 at the New York International Olive Oil Competition and World’s Healthiest Extra-Virgin Olive Oil 2017 at the Health & Food Extra Virgin Olive Oil Awards Competition.
