What is the difference between VIRGIN OLIVE OIL and normal cooking oil like sunflower oil???
Virgin oil has not been treated or refined. It has a stronger taste and is normally used in dressing. High temperatures will cause virgin olive oil to burn. You should use refined "cooking" oils for high heat such as frying.
Normal cooking oils usually undergo chemical extraction from the olive mash after it has been pressed.
Virgin olive oil is a lower grade of extra virgin olive oil, which has the lowest acidity levels (1%) & no additives.
