5 Important facts about real extra virgin olive oil


Find out what to look out for when buying extra virgin olive oil, how to use and store it.

2. Real extra virgin olive oil always smells pleasant. It can be the smell of cut grass, apples, Mediterranean herbs, artichoke, but it is always pleasant. If the smell is unpleasant, know that something is wrong with the oil.
