Olive oil is considered one of the healthiest. Its daily use has a significant impact on the prevention of dangerous diseases.

However, there are several types of olive oil that are recommended for different situations. For example, extra virgin olive oil is rightfully considered to be of the highest quality, according to the SSPDaily publication.

This oil is famous for its bright, rich flavor, low acidity, and bright green color. This oil is recommended for salad dressings. It is also suitable for sautéing or light frying.

Extra virgin olive oil may differ from Extra virgin olive oil by a slightly higher level of acidity. This oil is usually added to dishes that do not require a pronounced olive oil flavor. It is also used for marinating and baking.

Refined olive oil is known for reducing acidity. This means that it provides a more neutral flavor. Refined olive oil is usually used for deep-frying. It also has a more pronounced flavor and can withstand frying at higher temperatures.

Pure olive oil is usually a mixture of refined olive oil and a small amount of extra virgin olive oil. It is rightfully considered versatile and the field for its use is wide - from frying and grilling to adding to food. However, it is believed that this oil is less healthy than extra virgin.

And finally, extra virgin olive oil is not as popular, but still finds its buyers. It is produced by pressing olives and then extracting them using heat and solvents. This type of oil is usually used for frying at high temperatures. However, extra virgin olive oil does not have a characteristic olive flavor, so its use is usually limited.
