  • Buying a quality olive oil can be harder than you think. There are books on the subject, but here are a few tips.

    The most important question to ask yourself is what are you going to use it for? If you will be using it for the health benefits or as a finishing drizzle over foods like cheese, vegetables, meat or fish, where taste matters, you will want to look for higher quality oil. Taste test olive oil straight up. Better quality oils will have distinguishable flavor notes like tomato, grassy, or fruity (referring to the olive flavor).

    Buying a quality olive oil can be harder than you think. There are books on the subject, but here are a few tips.

    The most important question to ask yourself is what are you going to use it for? If you will be using it for the health benefits or as a finishing drizzle over foods like cheese, vegetables, meat or fish, where taste matters, you will want to look for higher quality oil. Taste test olive oil straight up. Better quality oils will have distinguishable flavor notes like tomato, grassy, or fruity (referring to the olive flavor). The quality of the oil is determined by several things, including the olive variety, the time, length and method of harvest, the condition of the olive at the time it was pressed or processed and, lastly, if it was pressed from a full olive or the remaining pulp after the first mechanical pressing.  Up to 8% of the oil is left over after the first press and the remaining pulp is further processed with solvents to extract the remaining oil. Be cautious what you buy and from where you buy. Ask yourself if you really want to put the “bottom of the barrel” in your diet. All olive oil comes from olives and reputable brands do not cut the olive oil with cheaper oils, but there has been a long history dating back to 2500 years ago, on clay tablets, that detail the problem to the more recent mention of the practice in Mark Twain’s memoir, Life on the Mississippi. There are vast differences between quality and one of the measurements is oleic acid content which determines how much deterioration has occurred in processing and bottling. Look for oil with low oleic acid. Better quality oils either have it on the bottle or accessible through their web site.

    The second important question to ask yourself is: are you buying it for health reasons? Just like all apple juice pressed from the wide variety of apples and apple quality would not be expected to be the same, neither should olive oil juice from the wide variety of olives and olive quality be expected to be the same. The two main health benefits of olive oil are the heart healthy monounsaturated fats and the cancer fighting polyphenols. There are differences in fat and polyphenol levels resulting from the olive variety, time of harvest, environmental factors, and extraction and storage methods. Oils that are higher in polyphenols have a slight bitter taste and peppery astringency usually noticed on the back of the throat 3 to 5 seconds after a nice gulp.

    The term “extra virgin” is defined by the International Olive Oil Council (IOOC) as “oil that has a free acidity of less than .8%, has 0 defects and greater than 0 positive attributes.” The best way to get great extra virgin olive oil is to look for reputable brands that have had a history of producing excellent quality. The cheapest will definitely not be the best and is likely low grade oil. You get what you pay for! Most of the brands Straub’s carries have been hand selected and taste tested and has acidity levels of .2% and less. If you are going to spend the extra money for olive oil instead of other oils, make sure you are getting the qualities that matter most.

  • We now carry Faroe Island Salmon! The Faroe Islands are a small, remote island group located in the middle of the North Atlantic with a population of less than 50,000 people. Despite its small size, the Faroese aquaculture industry stands out as a boutique producer specializing in top quality Atlantic Salmon. The industry is committed to maintaining the highest levels of fish welfare and sustainability; this is clearly reflected in the high quality of farmed salmon from the Faroe Islands.

    We now carry Faroe Island Salmon! The Faroe Islands are a small, remote island group located in the middle of the North Atlantic with a population of less than 50,000 people. Despite its small size, the Faroese aquaculture industry stands out as a boutique producer specializing in top quality Atlantic Salmon. The industry is committed to maintaining the highest levels of fish welfare and sustainability; this is clearly reflected in the high quality of farmed salmon from the Faroe Islands.

    The Faroe Islands is the perfect location for premium salmon production. Its remote location is complemented by pristine clear waters, cool steady sea temperatures, strong currents and accessible fjords that cut deep inland. Drawn to this perfect mix of conditions, wild Atlantic Salmon from all over northern Europe make their way north of the Faroe Islands to feed.

    The Faroese people have lived off the ocean for centuries and have a deep respect for the ocean and the environment. The aquaculture industry in the Faroe Islands is committed to sustainability and sound stewardship of the environment. The industry worked closely with the Faroese Government to design and implement one of the most stringent aquaculture regulatory regimes governing veterinarian best practices in the world. The goal of the comprehensive legislation was to create the most predictable and sustainable salmon production environment in the world. The legislation ensures strict compliance with the highest level of fish welfare and environmental protection possible. This exclusive veterinary prevention program has been so effective that farmed salmon from the Faroe Islands are completely free of antibiotics.

    The Faroese aquaculture industry has a long and proud history, with roots dating back to 1967. This heritage, combined with ideal natural conditions and a commitment to sustainability and quality, is now being recognized around the world, and salmon from these small islands in the middle of the North Atlantic are exported to six continents. The high demand for farmed salmon from the Faroe Islands, combined with the relative small size of the archipelago and the country’s historic commitment to long-term sustainability, means that Faroese producers have a hard time satisfying demand. Farmed salmon is a vital part of the Faroese economy, representing more than 30 percent of the country’s export and providing valuable jobs for rural communities.
