Storage and Preserving Olive Oil

As a natural product, and unlike wine, olive oil does not improve with time, so it is best used within a year. Nevertheless, depending on the variety, a freshly harvested olive oil could last up to 18-20 months (approx.) without losing its sensory characteristics.

Here in this section, we tell you few tips on how to store and preserve oil: -

  • Olive oil can be preserved longer than most other edible oils, especially if it is stored properly. The best containers for storing olive oil are glass (especially tinted glass). Other alternatives are ceramic, porcelain, or non-reactive metals such as stainless steel containers.
  • However, olive oil will oxidize rapidly if the container is not sealed correctly. If olive oil is stored in a bottle, ensure it is sealed again with a good cap or closure. Never put olive oil in a container that does not have a tight cap or some other method of sealing.
  • Always, store olive oil bottles or containers away from light and heat to maintain freshness.
  • Do not store olive oil in containers made of reactive metals such as copper or iron. The chemical reaction between the olive oil and the metal will damage the oil and may produce toxins.
  • Moreover, olive oil should not be stored in containers that have plastic caps, because the oil may absorb PVCs from the plastic. Instead, use bottles that have aluminum caps and closures.
