Refined Olive Oil vs. Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil in Desserts & Cooking 
Thursday, October 25, 2012

-Rachel Bradley (Veronica Foods)

Those with a limited scope of experience and/or access to quality extra virgin olive oil typically make broad and therefore ignorant statements. Often, these statements can come from individuals who maintain high visibility and are "industry professionals", cookbook authors, or chefs. These are often the same folk who champion the tired mantra that extra virgin olive oil can never be heated or cooked with.

Olive oil is a supremely healthy food. Olive oil is 98% fat. Many people find these two statements mutually exclusive. Still under the spell of the anti-fat propaganda that filled our food airwaves and dominated the nutritional discussion in the 1980s and 1990s, they wonder, 'if olive oil is mostly fat, how can it be healthy?'

Olive Oil Offers Cardio Protection & More

But did you know that if you're not consuming the right type or amount of olive oil, you might not be getting much benefit at all?

This is because different types of olive oil have varying amounts of polyphenols. Although olive oils health benefits have historically been attributed to its high monounsaturated fatty acid content, new evidence suggests it's the polyphenols in olive oil, which have anti-inflammatory properties, that may contribute most to the oil's cardiovascular benefits.
