All oils are best kept (or stored) away from heat and light. This is especially so for unrefined oils such as extra virgin olive oil. A cool dark pantry or cupboard is the best location for olive oil when it is not on the prep counter being used as an ingredient. There are certain gourmet oils that are unstable and should be refrigerated, i.e. walnut and hazelnut oils. Fine gourmet olive oil is not an oil to store in the frig. Never store olive oil in a plastic or reactive metal container.

Oil and Vinegar Cruet Sets Spanish Olive Oil

When purchasing the right flavorful olive oil for your Oil and Vinegar Cruet Sets, not all olive oil is the same.

Oil and Vinegar Cruet Sets

When the medical experts recommend a good balance of omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9 fatty acids and articles mention Spanish extra virgin olive oil to be a very good source of these fatty acids, people face many questions regarding oils, especially when purchasing Oil and Vinegar Cruet Sets. They need answers as to how olive oils are produced, how they differ from fat, what are their nutritional properties, whether they increase cholesterol levels and which oils are healthier than others before using them on the table in cruet sets. Olive oil can be very healthy when used as a topping or dressing, and that is why Oil and Vinegar Cruet Sets are becoming more popular on restaurant tables and now home dining tables. With the right kind of olive oil, known as Spanish extra virgin olive oil, you have found a healthy addition to cook with and add as flavoring. To store the olive oils in a proper fashion to avoid spills, and lost flavor, a glass cruet set as shown above is the perfect answer to easy storing and continual use of olive oil.

Spanish Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Unfortunately, the manufacturers don’t find it rewarding to invest in informative advertising. Their marketing campaigns may be accurate or inaccurate, honest or deceptive, but hardly provide sufficient information to promote informed buying decisions. In fact, marketing campaigns are not supposed to educate people and promote right buying choices. The consumers have to research about the products in order to make the right decisions for them. If you have the right information about products, it’s not difficult to get the right product. This is the reason why the Food and Drug Administration has geared up its efforts to revise labeling restrictions and other mandatory obligations for the right advertising practices. The authorities intend to curb the practice of misleading advertising, and marketing campaigns to influence the buying decision of the consumers at the psychological and subconscious level.

The manufacturers craft misleading advertisements by exploiting the general public awareness created by modern research. For example, when the World Health Organization and national governments launched the awareness campaign against the epidemic dimensions of obesity, food-processing companies quickly responded by claiming low calorie content in their food and launching a massive onslaught to victimize fat based products and gain from the psychological mindset of the customers. The ongoing research about food and nutrition has created unprecedented avenues of misleading advertisements. Some manufacturers claim low calorie or cholesterol in their products while others highlight the lack of certain substances to influence the customers by playing with their fear, emotions and ignorance. You can easily spot the highlighting labels like No Cholesterol, No Salt, Olive Oil Lite and many other manipulative statements on the products. People hardly realize that virgin olive oils don’t contain salt and simply prefer the brand with No Salt label. Similarly, all olive oils contain approximately 125 calories in one tablespoon, but the manufacturers have successfully created market imperfection by claiming their olive oil to be lighter than others.

The American public is reeling under the pressure of preventing obesity, and the companies create confusion to gain from the consumer’s cynicism. Many people don’t know that vegetable oils have always been and will remain cholesterol-free, but manufacturers find it very convenient to engage consumers by claiming Cholesterol-free vegetable oil.

How you can avoid the misleading traps created by these manufacturers? First of all, if you are looking for Spanish extra virgin olive oil, make sure to check the ingredient list which is mandatory for all packaged or bottled products, especially before you fill up your Oil and Vinegar Cruet Sets with it. Obviously, you will not expect any mixture of soybean, cottonseed or other vegetable oils. There can be no justification for mixing sesame oils, flavorings and other components, which should be added by the cook while preparing the dish. The method of extraction is another very important factor to be considered while buying the Spanish extra-virgin olive oil. You have to see whether it’s refined or unrefined. The tag ‘Product of Spain’ doesn’t mean that olive oil was extracted from native plants. So, unless the labels clearly specify that the extra virgin olive oil were extracted and processed from estate grown olive trees, there are chances of imported oil from Greece or other Mediterranean countries being processed, bottled and marketed as Spanish extra virgin olive oil.

Olive oil is a healthy alternative to vegetable oil. Often used in many foods, olive oil has come a long way. It has been a staple in the Mediterranean diet for a long time and more and more Italian and Mediterranean style restaurants are catching on. After opening a manufacturer’s bottle, olive oil needs to be sealed and kept in a sealed container such as a glass cruet. It should not be kept in plastic or metalic container. A glass cruet is most preferred. Many restaurants use break resistant oil and vinegar cruets. Borosilicate glass is the highest grade handblown glass cruet available, which means that is doesn’t shatter easily. Many other cruets break after being filled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar because they are not made from laboratory glass. The grape cruet is very popular and won’t break during normal ordinary use. It is completely different than the similar cruets found on Amazon.com. This olive oil cruet is ideal to drizzle olive oil for your salads, breads, and pasta.
