First Cold Extraction MEANS..

In simpler terms, “first” refers to the olives being pressed on the first round of extraction. “Cold” refers to the olives being kept no higher than 27 °C, and “pressed” refers to the method of extraction. This method indicates that no heat or chemical additives were used to extract the oil from the olives, which can alter and destroy the flavors and aromas of the extra virgin olive oil. Without adding heat to the processing, the olive oil also retains its absolute nutritional values.
