The 14 Fake Olive Oil Companies Are Revealed Now – Avoid These Brands
It was found that even 7 of the biggest olive oil makers in the USA, mix their items with cheap oils to get more profits. Namely, one of the products we regard as healthiest and a remedy for longevity has been corrupted.
Apparently, even 70% of olive oil sold in the U.S. stores is fake, as they have been cut with cheaper, inferior oils like canola (canola is NOT a true food, but a chemical mix – do not use) and sunflower oil! This is similar to the 2008 practice in Italy. This meant seizure for 85 oil farms that mixed some percentage chlorophyll with sunflower and canola to the olive oil.
The oil was mixed, colored, perfumed and flavored too, and these things made the Australian government investigate their oils. The results were awful. After that, not one brand named extra virgin olive oil got the 2012 certificate of approval.
These scams made the University of California study 124 imported brands of extra virgin olive oil and discovered that more than 70% of the samples did not pass the test.
THESE ARE THE BRANDS THAT FAILED THE TEST:
THE FOLLOWING BRANDS ARE TRUSTWORTHY:
McEvoy Ranch Organic
Bariani Olive Oil
California Olive Ranch
HOW TO TEST OLIVE OIL:
Additionally, you can also test the olive oil you have at home. You should put the bottle in the fridge for half an hour, and if it starts to solidify, it means that the oil is pure, as it contains a large amount of monounsaturated fat.
On the other hand, if it does not solidify, it is fake. Yet, just to be sure, look for official governmental seals of approval on the label, like “Australian Extra Virgin Certified” and “California Olive Oil Council Certified Extra Virgin.”

NOTE from Angel4Light:
I have been using Olive oil for a very long time and the best that I can suggest is Braggs Organic Olive Oil. It is certified and well worth the money.
When purchasing Olive Oil or many products today, think about the container it comes in. Plastic is toxic, aluminum cans are absolutely poisonous.
I try to stick with glass containers. It is safer and also many times reusable or recyclable.
I create my own salad dressings, using my husbands great wine vinegar with Olive Oil, some spring water and my select spices. We enjoy the taste and know that it is also very healthy.
Start growing your own food. I can’t stress this enough. Should something happen, will you be able to get all your grocery supplies that you currently enjoy? The convience is why people are drawn to the city. Survival is the difference between city dwellers and country bumpkins. We know how to can our food for long term storage, make our own butter, raise animals and gardens to be self sustained.
Try growing a garden instead of a lawn, the lawn is for looks but worthless when you are hungry.
Start looking at labels more. Many people are cooking with Canola Oil and it is toxic. Below is a video by TheHealthRanger to educate you on how toxic Canola Oil is.
Are you eating pesticides? Canola oil a great insect killer
EPA lists canola as a pesticide, says it is from the rape plant.
Here is a great Video by Dr Josh Axe, where he discusses the benefits of Olive Oil and how to find the ones that are the best.
Is Olive Oil Healthy?
I personally don’t cook with Olive Oil, as I use Coconut Oil instead. We just don’t fry foods like we use to. Now it is rare if I make fried potatoes, I bake them or smother fry them in a shallow pan with lid using just a little coconut oil and the sweat from the steam makes delicious southern fries.
I use Olive Oil for my skin and healing salves. For hair treatments and even for my pets. I love salads and making my own dressings, which is awesome indeed. By changing the herbs gives me the variety I need. I personally love my husbands wine vinegar and my Braggs Organic Olive Oil together is such a treat to my taste buds.
I hope this information has been helpful to you.
We have been fed so much propaganda through the years, now we need to stop being so gullible and lazy, we need to research everything.
To your health with love.
