Olive Oil Pomace vs Olive Oil; what is Pomace Olive Oil exactly and how does it differ from regular Olive Oil? Olive Oil Pomace is obtained from the pulp left over from the first pressing of the Olive Oil. The difference between the two is that Olive Oil Pomace is refined, has less of the Olive scent, and it has a clearer yellow color than our Extra Virgin Olive Oil. It comes from the same Olea europaea tree cultivated in many Mediterranean Countries. It might help produce a slightly harder bar and might accelerate more than Olive Oil.
