What’s the Difference Between Olive Oils?
Extra-virgin olive oil is made from pure, cold-pressed olives, whereas regular olive oil is a blend, including both cold-pressed and processed oils.
EVOO is made by grinding olives into a paste, then pressing them to extract the oil. There’s no heat involved, hence the “cold-pressed” label you often encounter. The resulting oil has a forest-green color; a grassy, peppery flavor; and a fruity aroma.
This method, while effective, takes a substantial amount of time. Certifying the product pure EVOO is also a rigorous, time-consuming process.
These factors contribute to the oil’s higher price.
Any cold-pressed oil that doesn’t meet extra-virgin standards is then refined to get rid of undesirable impurities, giving the oil a more neutral flavor and lighter color. It’s then blended with a bit of premium EVOO to produce what’s labeled as just “olive oil.”
So the Signature SELECT Extra Light and Pure Olive oil varieties are refined oils with a touch of extra virgin olive oil.
So how does this affect your cooking?
I personally only use extra virgin olive oil because I love the flavor, mouthfeel and richness of the extra virgin olive oil, but if you prefer a lighter tasting oil, you may prefer the other two varieties.
The Pure Olive Oil is a medium-bodied flavor, whereas the Light Olive Oil is the mildest in flavor and is a very neutral oil, which can be used for frying or sauteeing. I would not recommend the light olive oil for dressings or as a drizzling oil.
Plain olive oil for general cooking and sautéing, and a nice top-shelf extra-virgin oil for dips, dressings, and as a finishing touch for plated food.
