Is the Olive Oil Lab tested for purity?Updated 2 years ago

Yes, every batch of olive oil is lab-tested for pesticide residue and heavy metals such as arsenic, lead, iron and copper. We test for a number of common pesticides in every batch of oil made including Oxyflurofen, Chlorpyrifos (one of the most widely used pesticides) and Bromopropylate. Each batch of the olive oil is also analysed for its fatty acid structure, wax count and acidity levels, all of which help to determine the quality of the oil and to confirm that it is 100% olive oil.
