What’s in your Olive Oil?
Did you know that not all olive oil on the store shelf is pure olive oil? I KNOW! As someone who thought they were making the right choices about the oils/butter I use in our house, I was confused when I heard that the FDA doesn’t regulate olive oil and that some “EVO” have canola oil in it! The good news is that in 2014 California raised its standard and is urging the FDA to do so as well. Now when I buy olive oil I make sure it’s sourced from California AND is certified by the California Olive Oil Council. Last week I tried @weoliveslc for the first time. They were soooo kind and knowledgeable, Ellie helped me pick out the right olive oils for my family (a peppery one for me and a milder one for Jude.) We Olive also refills your glass bottles so your waste is cut down significantly! Shipping from California instead of out of the US cuts the carbon footprint down significantly too it’s a win-win all around!
