We live in a fast-moving world where nearly everyone looks to make the best choices in everything, whether the clothes they wear, the car they drive, or the food options they consume. Today, people are more aware of the ailments that can affect them if they are not careful with their food choices.
Apart from food choices, the vital aspect is the type of ingredients used to prepare a meal. A balanced diet is one in which all the nutritional food is present in the correct quantity. In a balanced meal, everything counts from vegetables, whole food, fruits, meat, dairy products, and healthy oil in which the food is prepared.
People in homes may pick all the right ingredients but may choose different oils to prepare a meal. Some of the common oils are vegetable, canola, soybean, corn, and sunflower oil. When it comes to healthy oil, there is nothing that can rival ‘olive oil’ which is popular all around the world due to its health benefits.
Olive oil is a traditional crop in the Mediterranean region and the reason why nearly all the meals in Mediterranean cuisine are so delicious and healthy. Olive oil comes from olives which is a fruit of the olive tree. Due to its wide range of advantages, olive oil is used in cooking, medicine, soaps, and cosmetics.
There are several types of olive oil that you may see in grocery or retail stores, such as regular olive oil, virgin olive oil, and extra virgin olive oil.
What makes Extra Virgin Oil so Popular?
The regular olive oil and Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) both come from olives, and only the extraction method is different. EVOO is made from pure and cold-pressed olives, while the regular one includes both processed oils and cold-pressed oils.
EVOO is prepared by grinding the olive, making a paste, and then extracting the oil. The extracted oil has a dark forest green color, fruity smell, and peppery flavor. There is no heat involved during the extraction, which is why it is called ‘cold-pressed. The extraction method is quite effective but time-consuming and laborious.
After cold press, if the oil is not up to EVOO standard, it will be refined further to remove impurities; this also gives a more neutral and lighter color. EVOO consists of antioxidants called ‘polyphenols’ in large amounts as compared to regular olive oil.
The Extra Virgin Olive Oil also consists of vitamins and other nutritional ingredients beneficial for the heart, brain, and eyes.
