Our extra virgin olive oil “Sicanum” is a multiculvicar, derived from Nocellara, Belice, Moresca, Tonda iblea, Giarraffa and Biancolilla, all quality if olives typical of the sicilian inland. This mixture gives the oil a marked sensorial balance and richness of taste.

We produce oil with a

"cold" pressing process

We carefully select the best olives that are grown and harvested with traditional methods and finally pressed in the family milling plant within 24 hours of harvesting.
The extraction process used to produce our oil is exclusively mechanical, extracted with a cold process and does not require the filtering of the final product.
Producing oil with a "cold" pressing process is a quality choice. The yield of the raw material is lower, but the product retains a high content of polyphenols, precious for our health, and the sensory and organoleptic characteristics are best preserved, so as to guarantee a healthy and good product.

At the end of the process, our oil is subjected to acidity analysis, a very important parameter to classify the quality of the different types of oil. The acidity of our product stands at values ​​ranging from 0.2% to 0.4%, therefore quite below the limit of extra virgin olive oil defined by law, such as 0.8%.
However, the acidity of the oil is not a characteristic that has to do with taste. It is erroneously thought that an oil with low acidity is a "sweet" oil. Actually, the typical tingling of extra virgin olive oil depends mainly on the presence of polyphenols. The greater the quantity of polyphenols contained in the product, the more it will have a "spicy" taste. The acidity of the oil, on the other hand, is very important in relation to the oxidation processes that lead to the gradual deterioration of the product. A low acidity oil is an oil that preserves the quality and taste better over time, even up to two years after packaging.

New Oil

The oil freshly squeezed, especially the one extracted with cold process, looks cloudy due to the fact that is not filtered and over the time produces a deposit at the bottom of the bottle. This deposit called sludge, is made up of vegetable residues of the part of the olives that remain in suspension and does not compromise the quality of the oil, rather it confirms its genuineness. In fact, even the olive residues contain polyphenols, which are important for our health and for the conservation of the oil itself.
The amount of deposit depends on several variables including the characteristics of the production year, the climatic and microclimatic conditions of the cultivation area.

OUR PRODUCT

What does it mean cold press extraction?

The olive milling processes are distinguished mainly by the extraction method which can be "cold" or "hot".
The hot method allows to obtain higher manufacturing yields since it allows to extract a greater quantity of oil from the raw material. However, this process involves reaching temperatures higher than 27 centigrade degrees, with a consequent alteration of the organoleptic and nutritional properties of the product, in particular the quantity of polyphenols naturally present in the oil is considerably reduced, the sweet notes emerge and the fruity and vegetal sensations.
From a regulatory point of view, the oil can be defined as extra virgin olive oil (EVO) if it has an acidity equal to or less than 0.8% (categorization governed by the European Commission within the EC Regulation 1989/03) and if obtained at less than 27 centigrade degrees with a percolation or centrifugation process of the olive paste (Reg. CE 1019/2002).
Cold press extraction therefore means that the temperature, during the process of pressing the olives and kneading the paste, must not exceed 27 centigrade degrees, since above this threshold the quality of the oil decreases.
Cold press extraction allows the oil to be extracted while maintaining the quantity of minerals, vitamins and substances rich in antioxidant properties, whether the extraction takes place with the traditional method (stone millstones) or with modern methods then with the use of continuous cycle mechanical crushers and decanters. The latter is the most used method today because it allows you to comply with the necessary hygiene standards while maintaining an exclusively mechanical production process.
