Olive Oil is a flavorful cholesterol-free oil that has been a mainstay worldwide since Biblical days. Our oil is produced to exacting standards of less than 1% oleic acid as well as many other oil components.
Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating about 2 tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive oil. To achieve this possible benefit, olive oil is to replace a similar amount of saturated fat and not increase the total number of calories you eat in a day. One serving of this product contains 11.5 grams of olive oil.
This Olive Oil is excellent for salad dressings - especially the oil and vinegar type. It is obtained from the first pressing of the finest ripe Mediterranean olives, and contains no preservatives, solvents or chemical additives. We pack this fine oil in an amber bottle to best preserve its freshness.
Organic extra virgin olive oil.

I purchased Now Foods, Extra Virgin Olive Oil from iHerb.com. It arrived quickly and in pristine condition. I opened the bottle, smelled it and tasted it. It is a fresher and better smelling and tasting extra virgin olive oil than I have purchased before. I also purchased Now Foods, Sweet Almond Oil. It, too, arrived so fresh and free of any harshness or acridity in its smell and taste. I'll be back for more of these fine, fresh oils when this order runs out.
Because I live in Europe, there is a huge range of olive oils to choose from in our local supermarkets.I added this specific olive oil in my cart because everybody who reviewed it said it had a great taste. My reaction to this product is that it did not meet my expectations. It is certainly not bad, but it has a bit of a bitter taste. I have tasted better oils. I will therefore not buy this product again.
