Premium Italian Olive Oil from Tuscany
Naturally grown and produced at my friends farm in Tuscany, Italy. The olives are grown as nature intended, without watering or other interference, and harvested by his family.
This isn’t cooking oil because it is so pure it has many health benefits in taking this as a supplement rather than anything else. I will never buy olive oil anywhere else again.
“What is olive oil and how is it made?
Olive oil is oil that has been pressed from olives, the fruits of the olive tree.
The production process is incredibly simple — olives are pressed to extract their oil.
However, lower quality versions can be extracted using chemicals, or even diluted with other, cheaper oils. Therefore, buying the right type of olive oil is crucial.
The best type is extra virgin olive oil. It’s extracted using natural methods and standardized for purity and certain sensory qualities like taste and smell.
Olive oil that is truly extra virgin has a distinct taste and is high in phenolic antioxidants, the main reason why it’s so beneficial.
Also, there are refined or “light” olive oils, which have often been extracted with solvents, treated with heat, or even diluted with cheaper oils like soybean or canola oil.
For this reason, it’s essential to inspect the label carefully and buy from a reputable seller. Even oil that is labeled extra virgin may have been adulterated with cheaper oils.”
