Gourmet Olive Oil

You've probably heard about gourmet olive oils--how there are so many cooking advantages due to the higher smoke point of the oil. How the taste enhances the lighter foods that are so prevalent in today's menus, like fish and fresh vegetables. But did you know it also has many health benefits?

Olive oil has a high amount of monounsaturated fatty acids. Fatty acids help control the way we burn our food for energy and the way our body transfers oxygen. Fatty acids are also said to help protect the body from the "bad" fats. A multitude of evidence supports the notion that olive oil is easily digested and can prevent colon cancer. Studies indicate that when olive oil is used in place of saturated fats, it may protect the body from gastritis, ulcers, and even heart disease.
