Make sure you're choosing the best extra virgin olive oil!
Isn't your health worth it?
Extra virgin olive oil is high in monounsaturated "healthy" fats and, depending on the oil, may be rich in antioxidant polyphenols. Clinical studies show it can help lower cholesterol and control insulin levels in the body, reduce blood pressure, help with weight loss, and may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. In recent years, however, there have been reports that many extra virgin olive oils are "fake" or adulterated with cheaper and potentially less healthy oils.
 
Which are the best extra virgin olive oils? To find out, ConsumerLab.com selected and purchased ten popular extra virgin olive oils sold in the U.S. It tested them in the laboratory for purity, freshness and anti-oxidant polyphenols. In addition, each product was evaluated for flavor and aroma by a trained, expert olive oil taster. 
 
Although all ten products passed testing by chemical standards for extra virgin olive oil, sensory analysis raised concerns about the quality of 3 of the products, identifying defects not permitted in "extra virgin" olive oil. Among products which passed all tests, ConsumerLab.com found several to offer exceptional quality and value — making them CL's Top Picks.
