Olive Oil (OO)

FRAUD alert! - What is sold as olive oil today may NOT be olive oil! - there have been several mainstream reports of this oil being adulterated  with cheaper oils; e.g.  CBS "60 minutes" aired a segment on the mafia involvement in Italian agriculture.

Olive oil contains 80% monounsaturated fat

Extra virgin and virgin oils are NOT a good choice for using with high heat (frying, sauteing, grilling) - having smoke points under 400°F. The extra light OO has been more processed and therefore has a higher smoke point of 468°F. Prefer avocado or coconut oil for high heat use.

OO is produced by crushing olives between stone or steel rollers -This process preserves the integrity of the fatty acids and the numerous natural preservatives in olive oil. It is the only unrefined oil in today's mass market.

If olive oil is packaged in opaque containers, it will retain its freshness - and precious store of antioxidants for many years.

Best purchased in small/medium-sized glass bottles, to prevent its rancidity after opening, if not used within a few months
