The most commonly known and used grade of olive oil is Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO). It is also the highest-grade olive oil. This means that industry standards require EVOO to be 100% pure, and produced without using heat. This oil can be used to enhance the flavor of your food as well as for sauteing, pan frying, baking, and many other cooking uses.

Benefits That Go Beyond Cooking
The benefits of olive oil go beyond good cuisine. Among the many uses of extra virgin olive oil includes weight loss. Because of its high content of monounsaturated fatty acids, Extra Virgin Olive Oil increases your metabolic rate, allowing the body to burn fat faster. EVOO also contains a large number of antioxidants that help support the immune system. Did you know that heart disease is proportionally less common in Mediterranean countries? This is due in part to the fact that a Mediterranean diet contains a large amount of olive oil which reduces cardiovascular risk.
