Why extra-virgin olive oil?
Buying the right kind of olive oil is extremely important.
Extra virgin olive oil retains some of the antioxidants and bioactive compounds from olives. For this reason, it’s considered healthier than the more refined variety of olive oil.
Health benefits of EVOO
Extra virgin olive oil is loaded with antioxidants, which fight inflammation and help protect your blood cholesterol from oxidation, and may lower your risk of heart disease.
Extra-virgin olive oil is rich in monounsaturated oleic acid. This fatty acid is believed to have many beneficial effects and is a healthy choice for cooking.
