The family behind Healthy Harvest
More and more consumers are turning to EVOO for its long list of health benefits. Yet in 2010, a study by the University of California-Davis found that 86% of extra virgin olive oils they tested did not meet the standards to receive the "extra virgin" grade. The oils were either old, damaged, or adulterated with cheaper, refined oils. Another pitfall when buying olive oil is relying on the country of origin printed on the label. Companies are required to list the oil's source, but oftentimes the label says "Made in Italy" even if it was just bottled there and made in other countries.
