enfrites

The olive pomace is a by-product result from olive oil extraction which contains most of the olive's dry matter - skin, pulp, small pieces of stone - and a certain proportion of vegetation water which in turn contains the water-soluble components of the olive, a proportion that depends on the system used.

The pomace is dried, milled and solvent-treated with olive pomace excluding those obtained by re-esterification and any cutting with oils of other kinds.
