Choosing the right olive oil

When consuming olive oil, choose one that is as fresh as possible, preferably under a year old. A label reading extra-virgin is no guarantee of quality. As with almost all modern agricultural farming and production, a lot of factory produced olive oil is stripped of its health enhancing nutrients. To find the best organic olive oil, look for an extra-virgin that is cold-pressed, unfiltered and looks cloudy. It is possible to find real olive oil that is made in the traditional way, typically on small family run estates.
