Definizione

Caused by processing at too high a temperature.1

Nota

Modern olive mills are partially or fully automated and have replaced granite crushers with metal crushers. They consist of a stainless steel body and a stainless steel crusher that rotates at high speed. The olives are typically thrown against a hammer-shaped metal grating, thus the name hammermill. Alternatives include toothed disc, cylinder, and roller mills. Modern milling is very gentle in order to avoid overheating of the paste. Cold pressed (extra virgin) oils must not exceed 27˚C at any step in the processing of the oil.
Modern malaxers are horizontal troughs with spiral mixing blades. Typically, two or three cylindrical vats are used in tandem, mixing the paste at slow speeds (15–20 rpm) for anywhere between 20 minutes and 75 minutes. The vats are jacketed so that the paste can be heated or water added during this process to increase the yield, although that generally results in a lowering of oil quality. New malaxers have an atmosphere controlled by an inert gas (i.e., nitrogen or carbon dioxide) to reduce oxidation and produce higher-quality oils.2
