HEALTH ALERT: Are You Eating Fake Olive Oil?

fake olive oil

Fake olive oil is a common find in the average grocery store– including the familiar brands that you see every time you shop.

What if I told you that you are probably using the most fraudulent “health food” daily that is causing more harm than good. Wouldn’t you want to know what that is and what you should switch to instead?

It’s extra virgin olive oil. The problem is, you have no idea what’s in that bottle! After reading what’s belowWe think you’ll be as shocked as we were when you read this disturbing news and wonder…

How DARE anyone sell us food like this!

Please understand, we’re not talking about all olive oil. Far from it. Good, fresh, authentic, and pure extra virgin olive oil is one of Mother Nature’s most delicious and healthy marvels. Consuming high-quality, healthy fats like pure olive oil is one of the most effective ways to maintain a lean and fit body. That’s because healthy fats like olive oil help you feel full longer.

Also, when you replace empty carb calories with healthy fat calories, you help stoke your body’s “fat burning furnace” to burn more fat, including fat reserves you’re carrying around your stomach, butt, hips, legs, and other problem areas.

What’s more, studies show that pure, authentic extra virgin olive oil also helps

  • ease inflammation
  • protect you against heart disease, stroke, and even certain cancers
  • relieve achy joints
  • lower blood pressure and bad (LDL) cholesterol

However, you gain these benefits only if you and your family are consuming pure, authentic extra virgin olive oil.

And that’s where the fraud comes in!

As documented by several of America’s most respected media, much if not most of the olive oils in your local supermarket and gourmet store are fraudulent, adulterated, mislabeled, stale, or even rancid.

For example, independent tests at the University of California, Davis, have discovered that 69% of all store-bought extra virgin olive oils they tested are fake, including famous brands whose names you’d recognize.

The New York Times recently published an explosive article entitled “Extra Virgin Suicide.” It reports that much of the olive oil sold in your local supermarket is adulterated with cheap soybean and other inferior oils. That’s very disturbing because most soy oil comes from genetically modified soybeans.

NBC News reports that “fake olive oil is rampant.”

CBS News adds: “Consumers who think they’re buying one of the healthiest foods on the planet often get something very different.”

“American grocery stores are awash in cheap, fake ‘extra virgins,’” confirms The Wall Street Journal.

A feature story on ABC’s Good Morning America was headlined, “Olive Oil Fraud Rampant.”

Forbes magazine warns: “Here’s the hard truth: the olive oil in your pantry, the one you bought for its health benefits and for some sliver of the seductive Mediterranean lifestyle, is most likely a scam.”

Why is this happening? 

With so many recent studies hailing the health benefits of authentic olive oil and the Mediterranean diet, sales of extra virgin olive oil are soaring worldwide. Big money is involved, triggering widespread counterfeiting, dilution, and product substitution by unscrupulous foreign producers. American supermarkets have become dumping grounds for these fraudulent oils. Yet it’s almost impossible to police the shady foreign operators who supply these fake oils because they are beyond the reach of U.S. regulators.

This guide reveals an insider secret on how to look for the right “code words” on the bottle that will tell you how fresh the oil is (beware: it’s NOT the “expiration” or “best used by” date!). Freshness is critical because olive oil, unlike wine, deteriorates with age, and you don’t want to feed your family rancid olive oil. You’ll also learn how to store and use your oil so it doesn’t grow stale or rancid.

Make sure you check it out, as your health—and your family’s—will benefit so much by switching from the fake and adulterated olive oil flooding store shelves to the real thing from artisanal family farms.
