Astuces et conseils essentiels pour préserver la qualité de votre huile et vinaigre

Essential tips and advice for preserving the quality of your oil and vinegar

You know that it is always important for me to offer you quality products with a goal in mind in order to constantly improve your daily life!
Here are tips and tricks to better understand and make an informed choice for the use of specific bottles to preserve the quality of your oil or vinegar.
  • Protection from light : Dark glass bottles, such as amber or green, help protect contents from exposure to light. Light can accelerate the oxidation process of oils and alter the flavor and quality of vinegar.
You will find in my shop different options either in glass or stoneware.
If you use clear glass, be sure to store your bottles in a dark, cool place to minimize exposure to light and air.
I always place my multiple bottles far from my window!
Some prefer clear glass for aesthetic reasons, as it makes it easy to see the contents of the bottle.
I also like to give a second life to certain recycled bottles like the following photo!
    • Non-reactivity : Glass, ceramic, porcelain, stoneware or stainless steel bottles are non-reactive materials. They do not react chemically with oil or vinegar, which could then alter their taste or quality.
    • Airtight : Glass or stainless steel bottles with airtight caps help maintain a good airtight seal, which reduces oxidation of oils and helps preserve their freshness and flavor.
    My bottles all come with a cork.
    • Contamination Prevention : Tightly closed bottles help prevent contamination by foreign particles or microorganisms.

    • On the market there are a wide variety of oils and vinegars, each with their own characteristics, flavors and uses.

    Here are some common types of oils and vinegars:
