Extra Virgin Olive Oil | Product Concerns
Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a higher grade of olive oil, which has become immensely popular in recent years. It is said to provide an array of health benefits it provides and people have been willing to pay more for it. Unfortunately, some manufacturers in the industry have not produced the quality product you think you are buying.
Certain manufacturers allegedly have taken advantage of these short comings by labeling certain oils as a higher quality extra virgin olive oil when the oil is in fact a much lower grade. These same manufacturers allegedly are using Italian sounding names and stating that the oil was produced in Italy when in fact the oil is produced in other countries and only bottled in Italy. Some of these olive oils are already a lower quality when bottled or have degraded quickly due to the transparent clear bottles used. The “Best Used By” dates on the labels are sometimes not even close to accurate since the olive oil in the bottle has already degraded to a lower quality.
For most people however, deciphering between extra virgin olive oil and a blend of mystery oils can be next to impossible. Consumers who paid more money for what was supposed to be a higher quality should get what they paid for.
