Why do some aromatic oils contain flavourings?
Aromatic truffle olive oil requires a little flavouring to strengthen its taste. Since the flavour of truffles is very volatile and difficult to transfer into oil, we need to intensify the result of maceration with flavourings. In terms of our aromatic lemon olive oil, maceration alone is not enough to create an oil that captures all the complex flavours. We’ve therefore chosen to combine it with lemon essential oil for a stronger flavour, reproducing all the aromatic notes of lemon.
