Despite an absolute disinformation campaign, it can certainly be said then that the first pressing of the olives is undoubtedly the best kind of dietary fat. The olive oil is for culinary traditions, historical, social and lifestyle of many people, one of the key components of the Mediterranean diet, which can now be considered a true model of life to which everyone wants to see, as synonymous with health, beauty and quality: in one word, of well-being.
The olive oil is the only vegetable fat that is extracted mechanically, that is, with the simple pressure or crushing of the fruit, without further chemical-physical type manipulations.
Unlike, for seed oils the oil is extracted by chemical processes, through the use of special equipment and chemicals, such as hydrocarbons such as butane, propane and hexane. These seed oils, then, are chemically treated with reagents up to deodorizing and make them presentable for consumption. In the various advertising these things are unspoken but, on the contrary, the consumer is mollified by the many lords jumping a fence like a sunflower oil (too rich in poly-unsaturated fatty acids, so as to tire the lipid metabolism in our body) really protect your heart (!!!).
In light of this, the mechanical extraction method is always to be preferred to that chemical, for this the only oil recommended to be used for the seasoning of our food is olive oil, particularly an oil with excellent characters: extra virgin olive oil.
Olive oil is the world's only 3% of vegetable fat consumption, this sobering as this exceptional product is little known (the use and culture) and the positive potential that it can be expressed by a health standpoint .
