Consisting of the liquid from pressed olives, olive oil is a nutrient-rich product that's widely used in dozens of countries throughout the world. Spain is currently the world's largest producer of olive oil, followed by Italy and then Greece. These three countries produce most of the world's olive oil.
To make olive oil, companies must first grow and harvest olives.

Once harvested, the olives are pressed, typically using a machine. As the machine presses the olives, it releases the liquid oil. The olive oil must then be filtered to remove sediment and impurities. The end result is smooth, nutrient-rich olive oil that's ready to be packaged and sold at various stores.
What is olive oil used for exactly? The most common application for olive oil is cooking. Although there are over a dozen types of cooking oils, many people prefer olive oil because of its nutritional value. Olive oil contains high concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids, which are considered the "good" type of fat. Unlike saturated fat, omega-3 fatty acids promote lower cholesterol levels and, therefore, lower the risk of heart disease. Whether you're cooking chicken, pork, beef, fish or any other meat, you can't go wrong with olive oil for this reason.
Olive oil isn't a new product. It's actually been around for thousands of years. In Ancient Greece, for example, olive oil was used as a skin moisturizer. It has even traditionally used as fuel for oil-based lamps. Olive oil burns slowly, making it an ideal fuel source.
Of course, there are different types of olive oil. Extra-virgin olive oil, for example, is a type of olive oil that's produced without any chemical. In comparison, crude olive oil is a type of olive oil that's made using solvents. Other types of olive oil include lampante olive oil and refined olive oil. Of all those types, though, extra-virgin is considered the highest quality.
