Olive oil is a very fragile type of oil, and it is important to know how to store it correctly to avoid the chance of it going bad.  

 

What to avoid:  

Heat, light, exposure to oxygen and certain container materials.

 

What to do:

  • Keep in a dark place, kitchen cabinet, storage cellar.

  • Keep at temperature below 28 degrees, but not refrigerated.

  • Keep containers sealed tightly to keep out air

  • Keep in dark containers, dark glass, tin, or stainless steel

    • Do not store in plastic, the PVC (polyvinyl chloride) from the plastic can be absorbed by the oil.

    • Avoid reactive metals such as copper or iron, because of potential chemical reactions that can make the oil unsafe.

    • Stainless steel is a nonreactive metal
       

If stored properly, certain types of olive oil can be kept as long as a year or more.
