California Olive Oil

Olive oil from The Posh Gourmet is perfect for frying, sautéing, or drizzling over foods. Olive oil holds its nutritional content better than most other oils. It doesn't break down or change its structure when exposed to heat, plus it contains both antioxidants and oleic acid. Due to its high smoke point, olive oil can withstand temperatures that can cause other oils to break down. Because olive oil maintains its stability at higher temperatures, it can actually help slow the cooking process, resulting in flavorful, succulent, perfectly cooked food.

When used in frying, olive oil improves the flavor of the food while giving it a lower fat content than other frying oils. Studies suggest that consuming only a few tablespoons of olive oil each day may greatly reduce your risk of coronary heart disease. Even when reheated and reused, olive oil is still healthy and highly digestible.

Virtually all of the olive oil produced in the United States comes from California.
