Extra virgin olive oil is the highest grade of olive oil, and is made from only olives, and milled by mechanical process that does not change the natural state of the oil (temperature is key). It must pass a chemical analysis and a sensory valuation. It can have no defects (which is determined by a trained Sensory Panel), and must meet the criteria set by the International Olive Oil Council or California Olive Oil Council for chemical analysis.
