Grocery Olive Oil Hardly Extra Virgin

More like lite! Am I right?  We could hardly tell the age of an evoo at a grocery these days, especially the national brands. Generally the USDA standard to qualify the status of “extra-virgin” is having a value of less than zero.eighty% oleic acidity, which means a zero.seven-nine% still qualifies. This is hardly quality enough to be used raw, which is why it’s exclusively for heating.
