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.

    The olive oil test you propose is just plain wrong. It doesn’t detect fake oils at all – I’d suggest that anyone interested in the topic of the fridge test to google i to find out why.

    I bought Colavita extra virgin olive oil yesterday. It has a certified authentic label in a dark green glass bottle. But to my disappointment did not solidify in the fridge. So does this mean there is fake labeling with authenticity too? I’m disgusted . I am bringing back the bottle which I paid $15.99 to Waldbaums. Thank you to DR. OZ . The consumer is the only one who can make companies stop fraud.

    I have Trader Joes EVOO. I usually trust trader joes products. It does not solidify in the freezer. I am reading online that most actually don’t… What are some brands of evoo that you reccomend?

    Re: Exta Virgin Olive oil test = have tried 3 brands: Pompeian & Newman & Bionature – none solidify in frig. Like others, I am asking if any one’s olive oil passed the test? And what is the product name? Thanks

    I’d recommend Orontes d’Antioch. They have great products that actually have a story, helping the farmers and community in Southeastern Turkey. The olive oil is produced in Antioch, the region where the first olive trees were cultivated in the world! The taste profile in my opinion is a fit for everyone. Prices are a bit higher than your average brand but you get the best quality and the purest product.

    California Grown CORTO Olive Co. passed the fridge test last night! It became a solid! So excited, this was our first try! It’s in a dark glass bottle, the harvest date was November 2012 (bought it yesterday), is 100% extra virgin olive oil grown and milled in their CA farms in the wine region of Lodi; label says they are pressed within hours of harvest.
