Coming from a 100% natural culture that does not allow the addition of any pesticides, inputs or other fertilizers and labeled DOP "Norte Alentejo" (protected designation of origin), this pure olive juice has all the organoleptic characteristics of a great extra virgin olive oil. Its extremely low acidity and purity indices bear witness to this, they are respectively 0.13 and 0.11.
