Recently on my Facebook page I shared a very informative post by The Kitchen Rag entitled: Is Your Olive Oil Adulterated with Rancid Vegetable Oil.
This post stirred up quite a bit of conversation, which is exactly why I share information like this. The issue of olive oil adulteration is real and consuming these adulterated oils can have negative health consequences, because many commercial olive oils are cut with low-quality vegetable oils, most of which are genetically modified (GMO). And, if you buy real olive oil, you should be getting pure olive oil, right? It’s real olive oil that has the health benefits and it’s real olive oil that is a culinary delight. Spicy, peppery and rich… that’s olive oil!
