Our branded COCÍNAME Extra Virgin Olive Oil , is not only an excellent oil for daily use but the selection of olive varieties used in this blend - Picual, Hojiblanca and Picudo - have a high polyphenol, antioxidant and oleic acid content, making it ideal for high-temperature cooking. These varieties produce a highly stable cooking oil, given that olive oil is the only oil capable of withstanding temperatures up to 180ºC without decomposing or losing any of its properties, contrary to other vegetable oils. Moreover, Olive Oil used for frying can be reused on various occasions.
Not only is olive oil safer to use when it comes to cooking, but it also has proven culinary advantages: the frying process is much faster the higher the temperature, meaning that food retains its nutritional value better. Furthermore, the crisp crust it forms on proteins ensures that oil penetration is limited. In this way, calorie intake is reduced and fried food retains its nutrients and natural juices. Since olive oil is a flavour-enhancer, it brings an elevated culinary dimension to deep-fried food.
