If you’re just beginning your foray into healthy cooking you’ve noticed that the acronym EVOO is everywhere. It stands for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Most of the time the word “extra” makes you think “more”. In this case it means less in the sense that EVOO is the least processed and the least acidic olive oil you can purchase.
Virgin olive oil is the second least process and both contain monounstaurated fat and may lower your LDL or bad cholesterol. What DO you get extra? You get high levels of polyphenol, a powerful antioxident that promotes heart health.
More flavor. Better health. Win/Win
