One of the most used oils worldwide is olive oil. However, not all olive oils are the same. Therefore, it is essential to know the qualities of each of them to choose the right oil:
It is an oil obtained by mixing extra virgin olive oil and refined oil. To achieve this, the oil is chemically extracted from the olives and, subsequently, it is subjected to a refining process to eliminate unwanted flavors and odors. From all this process, an oil with less flavor and properties is obtained than extra virgin olive oil.
The result of this process is a less intense oil, with less flavor and properties than the extra virgin. This oil is usually used for marinades, stir-fries or scrambled eggs, as its flavor is milder and more neutral.
It is the most valued oil par excellence, obtained from selected olives of the best quality, through a mechanical process and cold pressing. In this way, it is possible to maintain all its natural components and properties, such as healthy fatty acids and antioxidants, thus helping to maintain good cardiovascular health and prevent chronic diseases.
Thanks to the rigorous EVOO process, this oil has more flavor and intensity, with a more accentuated fruity aroma. This oil is usually used raw, and is perfect for combining with cold dishes or salads.
