Olive Crazy: All About Olives and Olive Oil
Feb 182013

I was reading an article from The Olive Press on food fraud. There was a link in the article to the Food Fraud Database. This database is compiled and supported by the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention. I went to the Search tab and entered olive oil and nothing came up, determined to succeed I typed in olive and tried the term “olive with”. Voila!

A host of adulterations for olive oil came up. It was mind boggling how many. I also looked into some of the other Olive Crazy family food favorites and was horrified. I remembered the best food advice I ever received – know where your food comes from.

As for knowing where your extra virgin olive oils come from here is my article on US grown evoos I recently tried and recommend. You can buy them all online too. You will not be disappointed.

May the sun shine through your branches.
