Olive oil is one of the most popular and versatile cooking oils, with a range of flavor and health benefits. It has been used for centuries to add flavor, texture, and health benefits to dishes from all different cultures.
It is made from pressing ripe olives, which can be green or black depending on how mature they are when harvested. The resulting oil can range in color from light yellow-green to dark greenish-brown and its flavor ranges from mild to intense depending on how it was processed. It’s also rich in antioxidants that help protect against disease and provide a number of other health benefits.
There are several types of olive oil available on the market that vary in terms of quality, cold press process, and type. Virgin olive oil is made from cold-pressed olives and has a slightly fruity taste with some hints of bitterness or pungency. Extra virgin olive oil is more flavorful and contains higher levels of antioxidants than its counterpart. Blended olive oils combine various types to create an even richer flavor profile for use in salads or as finishing oils. With so many options available it can be difficult to know which type you should choose for your dish!
