IN A NUTSHELL: Recently I have begun using this brand exclusively. Here's why.

"COLAVITA - EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL" has an impressive list of credentials that clearly set it apart from other makers of Olive Oil. This particular product boasts the following:

-----*- Certification from the "I.S.O." - "International Standardization Organization"

-----*- "Certified Authentic Product of Italy", where the best olives for olive oil are grown under the best conditions

-----*- Natural product, just olive oil - nothing added

-----*- Excellent full-bodied taste

What are the nutritional components?

A tablespoon of olive oil contains 120 calories, 14 grams of fat, and no cholesterol. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of the fat in olive oil is monounsaturated and nine percent (9%) is polyunsaturated fat; fourteen percent (14%) is vegetable-derived saturated fat. Virgin olive oils also contain the antioxidants beta-carotene and Vitamin E, as well as the phenolic compounds tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol.

WHAT EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE IS USED FOR:

That being said, this is not an oil for cooking, as it has a very low smoke point. It is excellent for salads and for marinating and boasts a pretty low acid level. For cooking try their "Extra Light" product as it has a much higher smoke point.

HEALTH BENEFITS:

PROVEN PROTECTION AGAINST ATHEROSCLEROSIS:

Eating foods high in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) [found in Olive, canola & flaxseed oil] will increase the blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids. ALA has been shown to confer a large measure of protection against atherosclerosis.

We have used Colavita olive oil now for many years and have always found it to be an excellent oil for use in cooking and on salads. It has an nice flavor and is far superior to other oils we have tried in the past. I am looking at a partially used bottle as I write this review; I will also add we have a new unopened bottle in the pantry in reserve.

Colavita Olive Oil is made in Italy by the Colavita family who has shipped this product to the USA for nearly 30 years according to the label. The label provides additional important information about this olive oil in that it is extra virgin and first cold pressed.

I have read in a number of publications that these qualities are important when one is selecting an olive oil. My wife is our nutritional expert and always specifies this brand of olive oil only.

As a husband and consumer of salads and various other assorted foods which benefit from olive oil I can testify that it has a great flavor as far as olive oils go.

QUALITY
In my opinion, having used a dozen or so brands of olive oil, Colavita is simply the best reasonably priced olive oil which is widely available. I've been using Colavita for several years now, and have never been disappointed. Colavita is excellent quality, dependable, and reasonably priced---the perfect combination for a daily general purpose olive oil.

FLAVOR
Although not an "olive oil gourmand", I'd describe Colavita as "rich and smooth". Connoisseurs probably have other silly terms for the flavor, such as "nutty" or "fruity" (but a "civilian" would never describe the flavor as nutty or fruity). It is not spicy like Whole Foods 360, and NOT strongly "olive-oily" (i.e., "herby"). Colavita is an evoo ("extra virgin olive oil"---to us non-olive oil snobs), which means "first pressing". Most olive-oil nuts consider the words "extra virgin" to be sacred. Practically speaking though, the mere label "extra virgin" is not a guarantee of quality---most grocery store brands (evoo or not) are harsh and bitter, but some are good cooking oils.

PREMIUM OILS
Boutique premium oils are are as variable year to year as wines, comparably expensive, and have to be bought the way you buy fine wine (that is, ideally at tastings, where you confirm the quality and flavor before purchase). Some are genuinely (as in NOT-gourmet-speak) buttery and nutty---great for dipping. Some taste like the fragrance of flowers---great for salads. Never cook premium olive oil---use it for dipping or drizzling, or on delicate salads. Colavita is a very good general purpose oil, perhaps the best common grocery store olive oil, but is not quite a premium oil.
