Live Superfoods Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

What makes Live Superfoods olive oil so special?

  • It’s made from organic Peruvian black Botija olives.  Botija olives are a naturally black variety that have one of the highest oil contents of all the species of oliveIt's cold
  • It's pressed and unfiltered to ensure maximum taste and nutrient content.
  • It’s certified raw, vegan, kosher, and USDA Organic.

So what’s the big deal about olive oil?

  • Olive oil is extremely high in monounsaturated fat. Monounsaturated fats, or MUFAs, can help lower your cholesterol and control insulin levels in the body. 
  • Olive oil is also chock full of polyphenols, a powerful antioxidant that protects cells from damage by free radicals.
  • Oleocanthol, another antioxidant found in extra virgin olive oil, has been demonstrated to have anti-inflammatory and anti oxidative properties.

The value of cold pressing

Any olive oil that has been cold pressed means that the temperature during processing never exceeded 27 °C (80 °F).  When heated, many of the volatile (and healthful) antioxidants and polyphenols present in olive oil begin to break down, and the the oil loses much of its potency.

What’s the difference between virgin and extra-virgin olive oil?

Olive oils are produced by olives by mashing the olives into a paste, then pressing this paste to squeeze out the oil. Any olive oil marketed in the U.S. as virgin or extra virgin was produced with mechanical means only and absolutely no chemical agents were used - any olive oil marketed as refined has undergone processing with heat and/or chemicals to eliminate off flavors and/or high acid content. Extra virgin olive oils are those that come from the first pressing of olives and is judged to be of higher quality and have a lower free fatty acid content.  Per USDA standards, any olive oil that is marketed as extra virgin must be have “excellent flavor and odor and free fatty acid content of not more than 0.8 g per 100 g (0.8%).”  Conversely, virgin olive oils must only have “reasonably good flavor and odor and free fatty acid content of not more than 2 g per 100 g (2%).”

In short, extra virgin olive oil is simply better, and better for you, than virgin olive oil.

    "Great taste- great price!"

    For the same price of a bottle of inferior olive oil at the local grocery store, the taste and aroma of this olive oil is infinitely superior! I used it in a pesto, made a bunch of my balsamic vinaigrette for salads. But the best was when my husband turned it into a garlicky dipping sauce for some toasted parmesan-cheese bread! I will never buy olive oil from the grocery store again.

    Really nice flavor in this one! Very strong "OLIVE!" kind of taste. I've always favored Greek olive oil in the past, but this one has even more distinctive and tasty notes. Plus, I trust that it's pure and not like that soybean imposter oil coming out of Europe.
