Not All Olive Oils are Created Equal
In 2011 Tom Mueller, one of the leading authorities on Extra Virgin Olive Oil, released his book "Extra Virginity: The sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil." In it he revealed a world of deception where low quality oils and artificial coloring were being passed off as extra-virgin olive oils to the American public. In Europe, you would be breaking the law if you were mixing refined oils with Extra Virgin and labeling it 100% Extra-Virgin Olive Oil.
