There are many types of olive oil that differ in their composition. However, we recommend extracting EVOO (Extra Virgin olive oil) of the highest quality and of course only using mechanical means. Olive oil is very common in the Mediterranean diet and consists mainly of oleic acid and lipids. It is particularly rich in fatty acids that work against bad cholesterol (LDL).
