Customer Review

on 30 January 2013
If you have ever bought a bottle of olive oil from the supermarket thinking, "Great, I'm going to start using olive oil because it's good for me", then read this, and get ready for a shock. Because, whilst it's true that olive oil is extremely good for you, the reality is that 99% of the so-called "extra Virgin olive oil" sold is anything but. It's made from inferior quality oils, doctored in the labs and in refineries and made to look at taste like the real thing to the untrained palate/eye. In fact, these oils have none of the health benefits of real olive oil, and yet, that is why you paid 5 times more than ordinary vegetable oil.

So where does all the extra money go? Into the pockets of crooks, who are amassing vast fortunes from these frauds, and with money comes power, political connections, and protection at the highest level of the Italian government.

It's scary! Read the book. This is no conspiracy theory.

How to I know for sure? Because I live in Tuscany, and have spoken to one of the guys who runs one the huge plants that buy cheap nasty oil from N.Africa and sell it back to you at vastly inflated prices with the label "Made in Italy" on it. It is ALL true.
