Is Your Olive Oil Fake?         ???

Story at-a-glance

The popularity of the Mediterranean diet has made olive oil a $16 billion-a-year industry. Unfortunately, this popularity has also led to massive fraud and corruption.

Even "extra virgin" olive oil is often diluted with other less expensive oils, including hazelnut, soybean, corn, sunflower, palm, sesame, grape seed and/or walnut.
These added oils will not be listed on the label.  >:(

Tips on how to identify high quality olive oil include buying from specialty retailers that allow you to taste it first. Guidance on what to look for is included. Taste and smell are factors by which you discern authenticity.  8)

Agelbert NOTE:
Watch out for the term "cold pressed" olive oil on the label. As the article points out. NO olive oil is cold pressed now. ALL olive oil is centrifuged. If you see "cold pressed" on the label, you are being lied to. That might indicate a proclivity to lie about content as well by that company...


Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
