Italy has been waging a war on fake olive oils with limited success but I came across some information that may be helpful to consumers to ensure we’re getting certified genuine extra virgin olive oil – not a facsimile that has been diluted with canola oil or who knows what else. Check out this website to bring yourself up to speed on the real deal. http://truthinoliveoil.com/. You can’t always trust labelling – quelle surprise! You’re welcome.
Here’s another writeup on the issue:
Another buyer beware product….. anything that looks like a duck, walks like a duck. quacks like a duck should be a duck….. including something as simple as pure “extra virgin” olive oil where the name alone gives the impression of purity.
It’s shocking how much we eat that is labelled inaccurately.
The book Virginity recommended on the blog you suggested is an excellent book.
