Extra Virgin Olive Oil

On today's Dr Oz show, they said that experts tested and found that 65% of extra virgin olive oil is not what you think.
Sometimes is even has added color to make the oil look like olive oil.
Fraud olive oil is as big a trade as cocaine.
Here are tips they offered:
  • buy dark bottles
  • look for a harvest date, and buy within 15 months of it
  • check for a seal
  • look to see where it was produced
  • take your extra virgin olive oil and put it in the fridge overnight. Olive oil should pretty much freeze in the temperature range found in your fridge.
