Anfora

Olive Oil

Characteristics:

A mixture of corrected olive oil, obtained according to the most advanced refining techniques, with good quality extra virgin oil from good quality olives. Olive oil has, in comparison to the majority of seed oils, a better resistance to frying, in fact the smoke point (at which oil begins to degrade producing smoke and harmful substances) is higher, allowing frying to occur at elevated temperatures, the result being a crispy fry, which is tasty and light.

Serving suggestions

The particularly delicate flavour of Anfora olive oil does not change, even the most delicate taste of food, neither in frying nor other cooking.
