EVOOSo what difference is there between olive oil and EVOO? EVOO is made of first cold-pressed olives with the use of mechanical means only and no chemical additives. Regular olive oil is a blend of extra-virgin olive oils and processed oils (that contain chemical additives). Another difference is that the maximum limit of acidity for an EVOO is 0,8%, while a regular olive oil cannot exceed 2%.
The organoleptic properties of olive oil and EVOO are responsible for the numerous benefits to human health. One of the olive oil’s main benefits, for example, is that it helps increase the levels of the “good” cholesterol and cuts the risk of cardiovascular disease.
It also helps prevent heart attacks, it has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, fights free radicals and it’s also a natural painkiller. Olive oil reinforces the immune system as well and it has many benefits essential to a child’s healthy growth and development.
