What you should know about olive oil
Olive oil is considered a food containing monounsaturated fats, and is a key element of the Mediterranean diet.
Olives for pressing are plucked before final ripening, when they are green aubergine in color, because the quality of the oil is much better than that of fully ripe olives.
Virgin olive oil is a "natural juice" that contains intact all the key components contained in olives, such as vitamins and minerals, and thus olive oil has all the beneficial properties available.
Virgin olive oils are divided according to the content of free fatty acids (acidity) and other special characteristics for each category.
Extra virgin olive oil with acidity ≤ 0.3% is considered TOP class
