Dr Oz: Counterfeit Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The next grocery store food fraud is with a product that is near and dear to Dr. Oz’s heart. That product is Extra Virgin Olive Oil and many experts believe that nearly 70% of EVOO sold worldwide is fake. Dan Flynn, from the U.S. Davis Olive Center, explained that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the highest quality of olive oil because it comes from the juice of crushed olives and no heat, chemicals or solvents are used. Dan went on to clarify that the juice of an olive is a combination of water and oil, which are separated so the oil can be bottled.
