Why We Started
We started OliveOil.com because we know what olive oil should be: extra virgin, unadulterated, and fresh. Unfortunately, olive oil that meets this description is hard to find at most stores.
According to a study by the University of California Davis, 69% of imported olive oil labled as "extra virgin" failed to meet the International Olive Council standards for extra virgin olive oil. In other words, when shopping, you probably only have a 31% chance of buying real extra virgin olive oil that’s free of defects.
Why We Love Olive Oil
We love the amazing flavor profile that olive oil, specifically extra virgin olive oil, adds to our recipes. We also love the numerous (clinically proven) health benefits it offers. EVOO is a staple ingredient in the mediterranean diet, which is the recommended diet by Mayo Clinic and other top medical institutions. When you incorporate extra virgin olive oil in your daily diet, you may be reducing your risk of stroke, heart disease, alzheimer's, and more. Learn more about the health benefits of olive oil.
