Comment sélectionner une huile de qualité à l'épicerie ? Maison Orphée

How to choose a quality oil

Given the continuous barrage of oils on the market, here are some important questions that will help you make an informed choice:

  • Who is the manufacturer?
  • Can I contact them easily?
  • What is the composition of the oil (is there more than 1 ingredient)?
  • Is the oil organic? If yes, what is the external body that issues the certification? Is it accredited?
  • Does the manufacturer provide information on its oil?

For example: Where and how was the product made? Does the producer keep a traceability register for the product? Does it provide the complete nutritional information? Are "How to use" advice and educational information available on the label?

  • Is there an expiry date on the product?
  • Is there a lot number to trace the product if there is an issue?
  • For olive oil, are the terms first cold-pressed or extra-virgin clearly indicated on the label?
  • Is the bottle dark and preferably made of glass?
