For those that are interested in buying authentic EVOO

just found this site: http://bit.ly/yYrgvE

How to get real olive oil

• Avoid “Light” olive oil at all costs. This is the lowest quality olive oil on the plant.
• If you can find oils with the International Olive Oil Council certification, go for those.
• Buy Californian olive oils, which are far less adulterated than imported oil.
• Do your homework. Find a reputable company or source and buy small bottles from them.
