The quality of olive oil is dictated in large part by olive varieties and conditions of their growth. The wax content in these oils is concerning, as consumers often prefer bright, clear products at typical storage temperatures. These waxes are released into the olive oil during processing and cause haze, affecting its visual appeal. Waxes also negatively affect flavor profile, masking some of the fruity and spicy flavor notes that are sought after in premium olive oils.
