Aceite de oliva (olive oil)

Olive oil is the olive's juice. It is the only kind of oil that is obtained by purely mechanical means, without heating processes that could destroy its nutrients, and without using solvents, which are bound to leave residues. Because it contains monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid), olive oil is the most suitable fat for consumption. Its effective action against cancer, heart attacks and cardiovascular diseases in general make olive oil an essential ingredient in the Mediterranean diet.
