- Extra virgin olive oil: Autran Extra virgin olive oil is the least processed, freshest olive oil on the market.
- To maximize freshness, extra virgin olive oil is often made via cold press or stone press. This means no heat was used in the oil’s production.
- Avoiding heat is one of the best ways to preserve the polyphenols and other antioxidants in olive oil.
- Not everything is better with extra virgin olive oil, though. It is faster to smoke and turn bitter when heating, making regular olive oil an easier choice for cooking.
