There are a lot of different cooking oils that claim to be the best to cook with. However, when you consider the major factors that influence how an oil reacts to high temperatures which are oxidative stability and ratio of monounsaturated fats then extra virgin olive oil is the most stable and has the healthiest fat profile. Verde Valley Olive Oil is also more practical for cooking because it comes in a variety of different flavor profiles and can complement both sweet and savory dishes.
Studies show that cooking with Verde Valley Olive Oil can even increase the nutrient content of your food.
