Fused vs. Infused

What are the different types of Olive Oil?

Olive oil can come in varying types where flavor is concerned.

Natural - meaning just that. It's the purest form of olive oil as nothing has been added, these oils can be mild, medium or robust in intensity. The type of olive crushed will determine the flavoring associated with these oils.

Fused - meaning a fusion of flavor is created when the olive oil is crushed along with the whole fruit of Eureka Lemons, Blood Oranges or Chaabani Peppers, for example.

Infused - meaning the flavor is infused into the oil AFTER the oil was extracted from the olives. An infused oil becomes flavored by using fresh herbs and fruits, like basil, garlic, and limes.
