Extra virgin - first cold pressed oil

It is considered the best butter, with a rich taste, with the best ingredients and use to the maximum. The bottle will be written either in English - Extra Virgin Oil or in Greek ?????????? ??????? ?????????

Yellow or green olive oil - which is better

Extra Virgin is green and yellow. Some tourists notice that in the taverns they are served with a greenish or yellowish olive oil and try to understand what is better and which is real. In fact, the whole riddle in the olive variety - green oil is obtained from green olives. It is thicker and more aromatic than yellow and slightly different in taste.

Black olives produce an oil with a yellowish tinge, even if so to speak. Which oil is better - green or yellow is difficult to answer, because it's a matter of taste.

If you liked the green in the tavern - look for the bottle of oil in the store, in addition to Extra Virgin Oil, the inscription ??????????.

Use cold pressed oil for salads and cooking. Buy it to fry on it - throw money away.

To fry, soar, buy another variety - about it below.

Mixed oil - refined olive oil plus Extra Virgin

On the packaging will be written ????????? - ??????????? ??? ????????????? ??? ??????? ?????????. It's unlikely you will remember this, just keep in mind that this oil in the store will cost less than Extra Virgin, but not a penny.

It consists of the usual refined with the addition of extra virgin. The catch is that the ratio of none of the manufacturers does not indicate. How much extra virgins are there? 50 percent or 5?

Nevertheless, this species is quite satisfactory to the taste (especially for a misunderstanding in the good olive product of a Russian tourist). They can not only fill salads, but also boldly fry, not sparing it. After all, this bottle is much cheaper than cold pressed oil. If you cook at the hotel itself, rather than eat at taverns - this option will be universal for you.
