Is any olive oil healthy?
Looks like olive oil is a miracolous product. Is that so? All the olive oil health benefits are only true for pure 100% Extra Virgin Cold Pressed Olive Oil with low levels of acidity and naturally rich in polyphenols.
This type is a rare find as the best quality goes in much smaller amounts.
For the olive oil to be extra virgin of high quality, it should be the first juice extraction of the fruits of the olive tree. Only the first extraction by mechanical means and strictly without chemical interference and/or high temperatures qualify for the extra virgin olive oil.
All other types of oil which is often sold as olive oil: pomace oil, virgin olive oil or various blends of oils including the olive oil are nothing to do with the extra virgin olive oil and does not possess its characteristics.
