STORAGE OF OLIVE OIL
The storage of olive oil in glass bottles is an ideal solution in order to retain its natural character for several months, especially if the bottle is dark in colour. Olive oil is sensitive to light oxidations, which speeds up when its colouring substances come in contact with sunlight, room light, even light from fluorescent lamps. For this reason, if the bottle is transparent, it should be kept in a dark place. Ideal storage temperature is believed to be 10-150 Celsius.
Olive oil should not come into contact with metal, especially copper and iron. These metals speed up the process of acidic deterioration of the product. Storage is allowed only in non-oxidising metal containers.
