The basil we use for this new oil comes from the region of Abruzzi, situated in the heart of Italy.
Sunflowers are ground together with basil. From that we produce the Seasoning Oil using a special cooled presssing method.
There is a huge difference between direct oils, like we produce, and traditionally flavoured oils, in which case the flavours are added after the production of the oil. In the latter case it is often necessary to add artificial flavours in order to boost the taste, which are, in most cases, unfortunately chemical. Direct oils have authentic, distinctive tastes that could never be reached by applying traditional methods. In addition to that, they are more long-lasting and heat resistent.
