The 14 Fake Olive Oil Companies Are Revealed Now – Avoid These Brands

Fake Oils

We all know that olive oil is great for our health. Olive oil is bit costlier but if you want a healthy diet you must start using olive oil for all your cooking needs.

Olive oil is obtained from the fruit Olea europaea and the oil is produced by pressing whole olives. The composition of Olive oil varies with the altitude, time of harvest and extraction process. It consists of up to 83% oleic acid and with smaller amounts of linoleic and palmitic acid.

Olive oil is rich in healthy monosaturated fats and contains large amounts of antioxidants. It increases life expectancy by lowering the risk of heart stroke and blood pressure. It also does not cause weight gain and may help to fight Alzheimer’s disease.

A recent study has confirmed over 70% of olive oil sold in the USA market is fake. It is adultered with canola, peanut and sunflower oils along with added colours and flavoured.

California University has recently undertaken a study on 124 olive oils and found that over 70% of samples failed the tests.

How To Test The Purity of Olive Oil?

Fridge Test

Keep olive oil bottle in the fridge for half an hour. Olive oil contains monosaturated fat which solidifies at low temperatures. If it does not solidify, it is not pure.

Some More Olive Oil Tips

  • Look for a seal of approval from the International Olive Oil Council.
  • Avoid Light olive oil.
  • Only purchase cold pressed olive oil.
  • Find harvesting date on the bottle. Most fake oil companies won’t mention it.
