In this short and sweet episode, we are exploring the idea of selecting the best olive oil, the episode is based on an article from Paleo Magazine and appeared recently in the print edition. We look at the health benefits, both common and lesser-known and give a few comparisons between different types of oils and fats. The studies show how much more healthy extra virgin olive oil is than other cooking or edible oils and we explain exactly why. The article covers cooking, the effects of heat, storage and ways to spot the good stuff when you are purchasing!
