Olive oil is considered a healthy kitchen staple, but most consumers don’t know that many mass-produced olive oils are mixed with lower quality oils like canola and vegetable, thus lowering the overall nutrition and quality of the product.
Marisa Bloch Gaytan is a Level 2 Olive Oil Sommelier and she says there’s a big difference between a fair olive oil and a great olive oil.
There are many health benefits o f a real extra virgin olive oil: reduces risk of heart disease and stroke, provides healthy fats and vitamins, improves bone density and much more.
Marisa shows us what to look for before purchasing a bottle of olive oil, from the harvest date to the type of olives used.
