Olive Oil Varieties
There are many different varieties of Olive Oil, so let’s learn about it first.
Virgin Olive Oil (VOO) – Quite popular for the low acid content, this is the preferred variant for cooking, especially if you want to benefit using Olive Oil without spending a fortune on it!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) – Extracted by cold pressing Olive Fruits, it is the best variant out there! However, it is very costly and not many can afford it.
Pure Olive Oil – Unlike its name or what it stands for, it isn’t really pure! It is more a combination of Refined and Virgin Olive Oils but high in acid content and not really suitable for use!
Lampante Oil – This variant can only be used as a fuel and not suitable for cooking.
