Olive Oil Production
Now, let’s talk about the Castillo de Canena’s olive oil production. The flavor, quality, and aroma of olive oil not only depends upon the variety of olive trees, environment, weather conditions and soil health but also depends upon the time and way of fruit picking and the methods of oil processing.
The following steps are involved in the olive oil processing at Castillo de Canena:
- Land Selection
Among the groves, Castillo de Canena selects the best land after various soil tests for olive tree plantation. Soil composition slightly changes from area to area every year, the purpose of testing is to know which area will be suitable according to the current season to get the healthiest olives for oil extraction.
The excellence key to get the high-quality olive oil is to carefully choose the picking time. It is extremely important to monitor the departure time for sublime product and Castillo de Canena knows this aspect very well.
Olives are picked from tree to tree through inverted umbrella vibrators to prevent any type of fruit bruises. If the fruit is damaged or bruised, then the oxidation process is triggered which ultimately affects the oil’s quality.
After pricking, olives are transported to the ‘Almazara’, the milling equipment within less than 2 hours. The longer the olives stay in storage tanks, the higher the risk of fruit spoilage occurs.
The almazara mill was the very first mill owned by Castillo de Canena in Spain that gained the ISO 22000 Standard certification. The double grid mill is used with slow speed to prevent heating up of the olive paste. The temperature is maintained below 22°C
The milling step is followed by malaxtion. In this stage, the olive paste is set for churning in a hermetically sealed refrigerated unit at a temperature of 21°C. The purpose of this process is to ease the separation of oil droplets from water and fruit pulp.
Decanting is the separation process in which centrifuge machines are used to separate oil from the rest of the fruit material. No water is added in this step.
Filtration is done with cellulose plates fro subsequent preservation of the oil. It is a very important step and oil’s quality greatly depends upon it.
Olive oil is then preserved in steel drums in an inert atmosphere using nitrogen. Temperature is maintained 18 to 20°C to increase the shelf life of the product.
Castillo de Canena bottle their products on demand of the customers. Before bottling, controlled amount of nitrogen is injected into the glass bottle to preserve the taste of olive oil.
