There are primarily two varieties of olive oils, namely refined and unrefined. The refined variety is produced through the chemical refinement of inferior-quality olives, whereas the unrefined type only undergoes extraction and bottling, without any chemical refinement whatsoever. Therefore, only top-quality olives go into making unrefined olive oil, and we at Carecci can be counted on as an Italian food supplier selling such types of unrefined extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars in Singapore. Extra virgin olive oil, or EVOO, is the ideal olive oil for cooking as it is unrefined, comes with pleasant fruity flavors, no harsh smell and taste, and also meets relevant criteria in its chemical composition to be labelled extra virgin. These oils boast of the highest quantities of nutrients, and hence provide superior health benefits. Olive oil is known to play a part in reducing heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and certain cancers. Thanks to its multiple health benefits, olive oil is widely recognised as a miracle drug and is a favourite of people in the Mediterranean.
