Important Aspects in Production of Artem Oliva Olive Oil Brand
The first and most important aspect is to take into consideration of this process is the choice of the land where the oil tree will be grown. It is the rule number one that the most suitable place for olive tree is the place with climate conditions that are preferably to be cold and rainy in winters, hot and dry in summers.
In Anatolia, which is the motherland of the wonderful olive tree, most of the people even say “it is better, if the olive tree rests across the sea”. Even though there is no research that would support such argument, Anatolian people are the masters of olive tree. Henceforth, if they are stating such an argument that would actually support the growing of the olive tree, it is best to accept it as true. Artem Oliva has chosen Mediterranean to grow its olives.
After the selection of the perfect land, it is time to consider the factors that are vital for processing of turning the olives into best extra virgin olive oils. These factors are basically related to production and storage.
One of the top production related factors are avoiding air and water contamination of the oil. Furthermore, avoiding light exposure of the oil and optimizing the timing are also quite crucial. The concept of temperature and logistics also matter in the quality of olive oil.
Air and water exposure are the major points to avoid the hydrolytic and oxidative degradation of oils during processing and storage. Olive fruits originally contain some water within their body cells. This water shall be separated from the oil as quick as possible in order to end the interaction of water and the oil
Hydrolysis of triglycerides due to interaction of water related substances with oil causes free fatty acids to be released. This is one of the major quality indicator of an olive oil. Artem Oliva is caring this process so much that the superior level of controls start at the harvesting. Only the healthy fruits are harvested and sent to the mill in order to keep the free fatty acidity levels of the oils at lowest possible. During the process, the water and oils are separated perfectly with the state of art machinery in Artem Oliva’s factory.
On the other hand, same terms apply for air. Air is one of the dangers to olive oil. Exposure of olive oils to air constantly will end up the oil to get spoiled and become non-edible. The tanks at Artem Oliva’s facility keep the olive oils with nitrogen topping in order to avoid O2 to be contacted to the oils. This is a very special practice taken by Artem Oliva in order to be the best extra virgin olive oil brand.
Light exposure is also another factor that Artem Oliva is putting great amount of attention. Light exposure (photoxidation) accelerates the damage to the oils. Artem Oliva’s storage facility and also the glass bottles are perfectly designed to keep the potential light exposure of the oils at minimum.
Spoilage of oil is occurring no matter how good the necessary actions are taken. However, with the protective practices, the speed of spoilage is so slow that Artem Oliva’s olive oils have fame to stay always fresh and high quality much longer than other olive oil brands in the market. Such spoilage should be minimized by carefully avoiding temperature, exposure to air (oxygen), exposure to light, the presence of water and organic residues in the oil, and mechanical stress which would occur during transportation, pumping or transferring of oils.
Optimizing timing is another factor that affects the quality of the oil directly. Olive fruits start the spoil right after they are harvested and with that reason, the harvested fruits are in urgency to be delivered to the mill without losing any time. During the harvest, Artem Oliva always keeps the equipment and vehicles ready for transferring the oils to the mill immediately. Once the healthy and green olive fruits arrived at the mill, they are immediately taken to process. Such a time optimization and keeping the idle waiting times at minimum require specialty and organization capabilities of the producer company.
As defined earlier, cold pressed olive oils are advertised as the best and it is true completely, only if the temperature of olives are kept at maximum 27°C during the whole process of production of olive oil. Artem Oliva’s selection of olive oils are always processed at maximum 27°C. In Artem Oliva facility, physical and biochemical phenomena take place during malaxation with critical effects on the extracted quantity as well as on the nutritional and sensory quality of the oil. The optimal range of time-temperature relationship is perfectly under control and managed smoothly.
