How to Find the Best Greek Olive Oil

Greek olive oil is like liquid gold to the Greeks.  They are one of the top producers of olive oil in the world and produce some of the best.

Look for Pure Greek Olive Oil which has not been adulterated or mixed with any other type of oils.  A lot of the extra-virgin olive oils are not pure olive oil anymore!

Golden-yellow olive oil will usually be made from olives that have been allowed to ripen a bit longer.  And olive oil that was made from riper olives will have a more mild and fruity taste.

Green olive oil will most likely be made from green olives that were harvested early before the olives had a chance to ripen.  Green olives are more likely to give a bitter or peppery taste to olive oil.

Both green and golden-yellow olive oil can be Extra Virgin Olive Oils.

Very Important!

Find a reputable source of Greek olive oil at a specialty store or shop online for Greek olive oils.

For the best quality Greek olive oil, look for Extra Virgin Olive Oil, a 0.8 acidity level or less, and make sure it was made in Greece.
