The most flavourful and purest of all the olive oils, extra virgin, or EVOO, is widely considered the healthiest form of this popular oil.
Virgin olive oil is the less pure step-sibling to EVOO and typically has a milder taste.
Don’t be fooled by the name. “Light” olive oil is named for its lighter hue, not because it contains fewer calories than other olive oils.
This common label can be found on a variety of olive oil types and is usually represented in the name by the use of the word “virgin.”
The alternative to cold-pressed oils are expeller-pressed oils.
