Frequently asked questions...

  • Q. What is Blu Estate's philosophy?

    A.

    Blu Estate was born nearly two decades ago by an Australian-Italian family, passionate about their food heritage. Blu Estate's close relationships with premier Australian growers ensures that the finest, most consistently delicious olive oils are produced.

  • Q. Where are Blu Estates olives from?

    A.

    Our olives are sourced from only Australia’s premier olive groves in South Australia, Victoria, Tasmania and Western Australia. It’s here that they are picked, cold pressed and processsed at just the right time to ensure that are the freshest and most flavoursome they can be.

  • Q. What health benefits are associated with Olive Oil?

    A.

    The health benefits of olive oil are numerous. They may be responsible in part for the low incidence of heart and cardiovascular disease associated with a Mediterranean diet and have a lowering effect on blood pressure. Olive oil-rich diets may lead to greater and long lasting weight loss than a low-fat diet and be beneficial for the stomach, pancreas and intestines and bolster the immune system.

  • Q. What does cold press mean?

    A.

    All of Blu Estate’s olive oils are cold pressed, meaning that there is no heat involved in their processing. This enables them to maintain their original flavour and nutritional benefits without the use of solvents or chemicals. That way you can enjoy 100% pure virgin oil, free from additives and preservatives.

  • Q. Can you fry with olive oil?

    A.

    Not only can you fry with olive oil, but you should. Frying with olive oil not only satisfies the desire for great tasting food from all ethnic backgrounds (Asian, Mexican, Italian, Indian and so on), but it does all of that in addition to fulfilling our nutritional requirements for a healthy dietary fat as well.
