|Extra Virgin Olive Oil|
Pen and Ink
Unfortunately, this particular brand, Mastro, was convicted in 2010 of fraud. The were claiming that their oil was 100% olive oil when they were mixing it with 50% sunflower oil. They were fined and the oil was recalled. I am trusting that they have learned their lesson and the the oil is now pure.
I'll admit to purchasing the oil that is on sale, however, I do understand that pure olive oil does cost a bit more, and the better grades cost the most. I use so little oil in my cooking that I just get the least expensive for regular cooking but keep a smaller bottle of the higher grade for salads or for dips.
