What Is Olive Oil?


Olive oil, as we all know, is an essential fruit oil, which we get from the olive tree crop found mainly in the Mediterranean regions. It has been used by mankind for many centuries. It is utilized for cooking purposes, developing cosmetic products and soaps, for medicinal purposes, and as pharmaceutical supplements. It can also be used as fuel and for lighting lamps.

Types of Olive Oil

Various types of this oil include the following:

Virgin Olive Oil: This variety is used for cooking with a lower acid content.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil: This is a much better variety and is made by cold pressing the olive fruit.

Pure Olive Oil: This type is a combination of refined and virgin oils. It contains a highly acidic content.

Lampante Oil: It is used as a fuel and is not recommended for cooking purposes.

Pomace Oil: There is another variant of olive oil available in the market called the olive pomace oil. Once the typical, mechanized extraction of olive oil from the olive fruit is done with, about 5 to 8 percent of the oil still remains in the leftover olive pulp or the “pomace.” Health wise “THIS OIL DOES NOT HAVE ANY MAJOR BENEFITS, AND JUST HAS THE NAME OF OLIVE OIL”
