  • What are the nutritional facts for Extra Virgin Olive Oil?

    One tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains 120 calories, 14 grams of fat, zero cholesterol, and zero sodium. 77% of the fat in extra virgin olive oil is monounsaturated (more depending on the varietal of the olive), 9% is polyunsaturated fat, and 14% is vegetable-derived saturated fat. Studies show that when substituted for saturated fats, monounsaturated fats lower blood cholesterol, especially the harmful, low-density lipoproteins (LDL), while protecting the good, high-density lipoproteins (HDL). Extra Virgin Olive Oil also contains the antioxidants beta-carotene and Vitamin E, as well as phenolic compounds tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol. EVOO contains no salt and is naturally cholesterol free.
  • Does olive oil contain cholesterol?

    No. In fact, olive oil is a monounsaturated fat, which reduces the level of LDL cholesterol (the "bad" cholesterol). Unlike polyunsaturated fats, olive oil does not affect HDL, which protects the arteries from cholesterol build-up.
  • Does olive oil contain trans fat?

    No. Olive oil contains no trans fat.
