All about Our Extra Virgin Olive Oils

Studies show that 100% extra virgin olive oil helps fight cancer and heart disease. In addition, quality olive oils can help reduce cholesterol and inflammation, help prevent macular degeneration, lubricate joints, and improve cognitive function. Muskoka Olive Oil’s oils are made with 100% Extra Virgin, first cold pressed olive oils.

What is Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra Virgin Olive Oils (EVOO) are first cold pressed, meaning there is no heat involved during the extraction, the olive pressed only once, and the oil is of highest quality-below 1% acidity.  They go beyond the International Olive Oil Council (IOOC) testing standards by including key factors to determine the oils worthiness of the ultra-premium standard.  Our oils are all-natural and have no artificial additives or flavour enhancements.  Each bottle of our extra virgin olive oil we sell is bottled fresh and meets the exact chemistry which we proudly display on our product description cards, including crush date since fresh crushed EVOO’s yield the most flavour and nutrients.

All of our olive oils and specialty oils are 100% Non-GMO Project Verified making them gluten free, dairy free, and soy free.

Health Benefits of EVOO

Olive oil has been part of the healthy Mediterranean diet for years, which is recommended by such prestigious institutions as the Mayo clinic.  Our bodies need fat.  Fat helps us absorb vitamins A, D, E, and K.  It helps our body grow and develop.  It keeps our joints working smoothly.  Our hair and skin need it to stay soft and moisturized, not flaky and itch.
