I just came from how it's made: canola oil and the difference is shocking. It's safe to say I'm never using canola oil again.

So, just to sum up: • Grind the olives into a paste, making sure the temperature doesn’t go above 27C (80F). (I’ve read that it’s then stirred to break up the oil.) • Press the paste between the hemp mats or spin in centrifuge until the oil is out. • (Optional) Drain. • Bottle. Am I missing anything?

No offence, but we make the best olive oil here in Australia. Sorry but out of all the olive oil I have tasted in my life, Australian and New Zealand olive oil tastes amazing and fresh and Italian, Spanish and Greek olive oil is just meh, stale, bland and boring. I understand they probably send us their low grade stuff, big mistake as we have the BEST climate, soil and air for olive growing.
E hhh (1 month ago)
Only a moron would believe there is really the what so called "extra virgin olive oil". Olives do not have sex, so they are usually virgin ! Ok kidding aside, olives do not produce much oil. Different kinds of food grade oil is mixed with olive extract you called "oil" from pressed olives to become olive oil you buy in the stores. Try buying some olives, press them and, see how much so called olive oil you can get. Here's another hoax, the oil from pressed olives is NOT clear but, cloudy. Ask yourself why is your olive oil clear?? Have you ever seen olive oil in the supermarket that is cloudy? hah..

EU olive oil = RANCID CARPOLA, BUY ONLY CALIFORNIA. Greece, spain, all racid crap
paul best (1 month ago)
@L L Oh yes I am sure Aussie oil is far superior to EU crapola,,sure the EU ships the crap to the USA, as US consumers have no idea about quality/toxic oil,. No idea at all. I perfer Australia wines over any EU wine. cali wines are good but expensive. EU has been dumping toxic OO on the USA past 50 yrs,,a few others here in the US know this as well. Paul New Orleans
L L (1 month ago)
paul best Yep, absolutely toxic mass produced stuff. Plus they export the worst stuff thinking we in the New World don’t know any better. I hate wildfires :-(. We have a very unique growing region which is Tasmania. The cooler summers produce a very unique oil. We have Boundary Bend in Victoria which is a massive, largest plantation in the Southern Hemisphere. They produce on a mass scale under multiple brands which all still smash the EU oils in blind tastings and other testing.
paul best (1 month ago)
@L L california has ideal soil, but they also have yearly wildfires which can wipe out a farm in 1 day. think about this, the EU produces so many million tons of OO, its common sense as production incrddsed overed the past 50 yrs,,quality has gone down. Its common sense. EU oil is toxic.
L L (1 month ago)
paul best Amazing!!!! Yes, you are totally correct. It’s rubbish, stale, dodgey oil. That’s a shame that oil is oil in US. Go California!!! I want to try Californian oil, will definitely buy in glass. I’d like to try South African olive oil too. Actually most of Australia’s olive trees were planted in the late 1980s-present. It’s a new thing, but didn’t take us long to test our oil against theirs!!! God bless to you, too!!!
paul best (1 month ago)
@L L well tghe australians are a very smart group of people,,,here in the USA,,,*OIl is OIL*, I am the very 1st report that EU(Greece/Spain + others) offer TOXIC oil as it sits in huge vats for months and so goes stale = toxic. I am the only one reporting. Yes california Oil is produced in smaller quanities and is produced/sold ina very short time span. I am guessing at most of this, but i bet my bank acct I am near 99% accurate. I have a incredible intuition and can see /vision things no one else can. The Cali oil is 25% more cost, but well worth the extra. I have no more upset stomach now that i switched to olny california oil. Spead the word,. Also only buy california in GLASSS, Walmart sells cali oil in glass and platic, Plastic as you know alters the flavor. = worthless. God bless.

My husband (and his family) have olive groves, which we cold press into oil and use. There’s no way I’d eat any oil any other way now. Yes, I know how lucky we are. Please don’t eat other oils that are processed (watch the way canola oil [aka rapeseed] is processed. With solvents, heat and bleach). The remainder of the olives are turned into a pâté for human consumption. It’s delicious

The leftovers can be used as fuel and not animal feed.And of course the virgin oil is the concentracion of some chemicals. when the oil is ready the take a small amount and the do a prosses and they find out if it is virgin or extra virgin or yet another type extra extra virgin oil.But if you are wondering how i know all that staf is because iam living in Greece and i am a farmer.

Olives should be banned too healthy and interferes with the profits from regular fats plus if it is healthier all those hospitals won't get the income from sick patients how are they going to pay the doctors their high salaries. No more ambulances or visitors there goes the profits from the petroleum companies. And why olives should be banned dammit it's unamerican. What are the idiot people thinking trying to eat healthier is better. So selfish and unsympathetic to these billionaires businesses and force them to get lower profits. Makes me sick. Let's boycott olive oil

The majority or things that grow are technically a fruit. Avocados, tomatoes, cucumbers, walnuts are all really fruits. Corn is sold as a vegetable, but is actually a grain.

It's a Scam in the U.S - It works like this - Low quality OO is falsely marketed as virgin or extra-virgin - and not even from Italy - or it's been mixed with other oils of dubious origins. At worst, it's not olive oil at all but a vegetable oil disguised with coloring and aroma. They screw us over every way they can ~

What type of olive oil DOESN'T taste like olives (which I hate).  A local restaurant uses what they claim is olive oil for O&V salad dressing, and it doesn't taste like olives.  Anybody have a clue?
