14 FAKE OLIVE OIL COMPANIES – AVOID THESE BRANDS


It was found that even 7 of the biggest olive oil makers in the USA, mix their items with cheap oils to get more profits. Namely, one of the products we regard as healthiest and a remedy for longevity has been corrupted.
I don't anything about the "Kosher Brands" such as Haddar, Leiber's, etc .....since none of them manufacture olive oil .... they are mainly distributers and no one knows their origin.
Apparently, even 70% of olive oil sold in the U.S. stores is fake, as they have been cut with cheaper, inferior oils like canola and sunflower oil! This is similar to the 2008 practice in Italy. This meant seizure for 85 oil farms that mixed some percentage chlorophyll with sunflower and canola to the olive oil.
The oil was mixed, colored, perfumed and flavored too, and these things made the Australian government investigate their oils. The results were awful. After that, not one brand named extra virgin olive oil got the 2012 certificate of approval.
These scams made the University of California to study 124 imported brands of extra virgin olive oil and discovered that more than 70% of the samples did not pass the test.

THESE ARE THE BRANDS THAT FAILED THE TEST:

Carapelli
Mezzetta
Pompeian
Mazola
Primadonna
Colavita
Sasso
Antica Badia
Star
Whole Foods
Felippo Berio
Safeway
Coricelli
Bertolli

ON THE OTHER HAND, THE FOLLOWING BRANDS ARE TRUSTWORTHY:

Lucero
McEvoy Ranch Organic
Corto Olive
Omaggio
Bariani Olive Oil
California Olive Ranch
Lucini
Ottavio
Cobram Estate
Olea Estates
Kirkland Organic

HOW TO TEST OLIVE OIL:

Additionally, you can also test the olive oil you have at home. You should put the bottle in the fridge for half an hour, and if it starts to solidify, it means that the oil is pure, as it contains a large amount of monounsaturated fat.
On the other hand, if it does not solidify, it is fake. Yet, just to be sure, look for official governmental seals of approval on the label, like “Australian Extra Virgin Certified” and “California Olive Oil Council Certified Extra Virgin.”
We really hope you find this article helpful and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family. Thank You.

I'm surprised you're that gullible.
The story in question is mostly fake, since the added additions to Extra Virgin Olive Oil isn't from other oils, rather from other types of olive oil. None of it is mixed with Canola, sunflower, Etc

Snopes

Snopes.com, a website that’s been around since 1995, is sometimes cited by other “fact-checking” sites to support their claims. Facebook has indicated it plans to use Snopes as one of its arbiters of “fake news.” But Snpoes admits it has no standard procedure for fact-checking.

One of Snopes’ leading fact-checkers is a former sex-and-fetish blogger who described her routine as smoking pot and posting to Snopes.com, and the company now is embroiled in a legal dispute between its former married founders that includes accusations the CEO used company money for prostitutes.

“This is Facebook’s high journalistic standard,” commented Pamela Geller, an author and blogger who focuses on the politically incorrect subject of Islam and terrorism.

“What a joke,” she wrote on her blog. “Facebook’s fact checkers will be used to censor and ban conservative perspectives, not to distinguish truth from falsehood. Everyone knows that.”

The Daily Mail of London reported one of Snopes.com’s main fact checkers, Kim LaCapria, is disclosed to be a former sex-blogger who called herself “Vice Vixen.”

Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson told WND in December that she thinks the uproar over “fake news” is a “narrative-driven propaganda campaign.”

“I think there’s an agenda to censor the news as opposed to actually trying to eliminate fake news,” she said.

A DailyMail.com investigation found that Snopes.com’s founders, former husband and wife David and Barbara Mikkelson, are embroiled in a lengthy and bitter legal dispute in the wake of their divorce.

He has since remarried to a former escort and porn actress who is one of the site’s staff members.

Barbara Mikkelson accuses her ex-husband of embezzlement while David claims she took millions from their joint accounts and bought property in Las Vegas.

One of Snopes.com’s lead fact-checkers is Kim LaCapria, the Daily Mail reported, who has also been a sex-and-fetish blogger who went by the pseudonym “Vice Vixen.” Her blog had “a specific focus on naughtiness, sin, carnal pursuits, and general hedonism and bonne vivante-ery.”

Her day-off activities she said on another blog were: “played scrabble, smoked pot, and posted to Snopes.'”

“That’s what I did on my day “on,” too,” she added.

David Mikkelson told the the Daily Mail that Snopes does not have a “standardized procedure” for fact-checking “since the nature of this material can vary widely.”

He said the process of fact-checking “‘involves multiple stages of editorial oversight, so no output is the result of a single person’s discretion.”

Snopes has no formal requirements for fact-checkers, he told the London paper, because the variety of the work “would be difficult to encompass in any single blanket set of standards.”

Mikkelson has denied that Snopes takes any political position, but the Daily Mail noted his new wife ran for U.S. congress in Hawaii as a Libertarian in 2004.

During the campaign she handed out “Re-Defeat Bush” cards and condoms stamped with the slogan “Don’t get screwed again.”

“Let’s face it, I am an unlikely candidate. I fully admit that I am a courtesan,” she wrote on her campaign website.

This is relevant to Pesach which is coming up soon.
In my house we have used only extra virgin olive oil on Pesach.
The OU says that their extra virgin olive is Kosher for Pesach.
Now this changes everything.

Not all those who failed did so because of other oils mixed in, some did because of rancid & other defects which render the oil not extra virgin. They may still be 100% pure. I have heard the new Kirkland isn't the same what it used to be, just hearsay though.

This is not true, the frum olive oil companies want to claim that their olive oil is the only oil good for Pesach and Chanuka. They are losing tons of business to Costco. So they made up this story and will put a huge hechsher on their oil claiming it is 100 percent pure unlike the goyish brands. Then they will charge triple the price. TAKE NOTE! Stock up now on olive oil before all of hell breaks loose. You're welcome.

Or just stop buying into religious extortion.

If Jews would stand up for themselves and tell these thieves "better treif than theft," the "kosher" criminals would wise up. But the change will only occur when they feel it in the pocket. The Jews have gone from practitioners of religion to being slaves to it.

You are right about fake olive oil. 60 minutes did a story about this a year ago.
https://www.google.com/amp/www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/60-minutes-overtime-how-to-buy-olive-oil/?client=safari

But regarding Snopes, you've offered no evidence that it is driven by leftist political sentiments. Do you have specific examples where Snopes has compromised the truthfulness of its stories because of those sentiments. The kinky sexual habits of the the employees have little importance on the veracity of Snopes, unless you can show it to be so, which you have not done.
