The advantage is to obtain a superior quality olive and that provides the possibility of having the best extra virgin olive oil.

Extra virgin olive oil

We have already dedicated an article to clarify the different varieties of oil.

The extra virgin oil is the best quality and Jaén is the Spanish province with the highest production and where the best quality awards are obtained worldwide. One of the objectives of the fair is to publicize the advantages of consuming extra virgin olive oil and the health benefits.

In order for the oil to retain all its properties, it is advisable to consume it raw and at its ideal point of preservation.

We emphasize that a law has recently been approved that prohibits the use of the terms "virgin" and "extra virgin" for any vegetable fat that does not respond to olive oil.

The use of mixtures of olive oil and olive pomace with other oils of vegetable origin is prohibited. Nor can they be used in products with an oily appearance.

Of the innumerable favorable properties that extra virgin oil has for health, it is worth highlighting the type of fat that it gives us, the healthy one.

Our body needs a quantity of fat in the daily diet, but not just any fat.

Healthy fats : monounsaturated and polyunsaturated.

  • They provide chemical energy to our cells.
  • Linoleic acid and alpha linolenic acid regulate cell membranes. They are the main fats in extra virgin olive oil.
  • They are a source of vitamins A, D, E and K, important in growth and the nervous and reproductive system.
  • They favor the purification of the liver.
  • Huge importance in the growth and development of the reproductive and nervous system.
  • Beneficial for the skin.

Harmful fats:

Saturated (they cause excess bile secretion and increase in cholesterol). We must not overeat.

They may be:

  • Solid in appearance and fundamentally of animal origin.
  • Of vegetable origin, such as those from palm and coconut.

Trans : transformed liquid oils found mainly in industrially baked products. We must avoid its consumption as much as possible. Also vacuum-packed fried products.
