Today we’re going to talk about the corruption in the olive oil business, and I’m going to share how to find real olive oil. There has been corruption going on in the olive oil business for a very long time. When you buy olive oil, you want to make sure you’re buying the right kind. 

Real olive oil is delicious. It has a very green, bright, peppery, grassy, fresh taste. Fake olive oil is often flavorless and rancid. Many companies actually blend their olive oil with cheaper low-quality oil. The FDA has only recently started going after some of these counterfeits. 

How to find real olive oil:

1. Always get extra virgin olive oil (not light or pure).

2. Find the harvest date and note the “best by” date or “bottled on” date. 

3. Look for a 3rd party seal. 

4. Avoid big brands of olive oil you would find in the grocery store. It may be best to go to a specialty store where you can sample the olive oil. Or order it from a country that you know has real olive oil, like Italy.

5. Look for the name of the producer or estate where the olive oil originated from.
