Why use olive oil in cooking?

Apart from its exceptional properties for human health, olive oil also has exceptional properties for cooking:
  • It has rich flavouring substances and micro-ingredients that make meat, fish and vegetables taste better.
  • It can preserve food and increase its longevity.
  • If added at the end of cooking, it preserves all its properties; when eaten raw, it fully reveals  its delicious flavour.
  • It adds a twist to the taste of salads and vegetables and helps prepare vinai-grette-type sauces.
  • It is ideal for frying food, since fats and other oils (sunflower oil, seed oil, etc.) oxidise during cooking due to high temperatures.
  • It can be used to preserve food (e.g. cheese, vegetables, fish).
