So, what is virgin olive oil?

Virgin olive oil is a natural and healthy ingredient obtained from the fruit of the olive tree. It is extracted through a mechanical process that involves crushing the olives and separating the oil from the pulp. This type of olive oil is considered to be of the highest quality, as it is produced without the use of chemicals or heat. Its fruity flavor and distinct aroma make it a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes, from salads and dressings to sautés and marinades. Additionally, virgin olive oil is rich in healthy fats and antioxidants, which make it a valuable addition to any diet.
