Extra Virgin Olive Oil
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.
From the FDA's website: 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 Olive Oil contains 11.5 grams of olive oil.
Suggested Use: 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.
