    UK citizens - what olive oil do you use?

    Primal Fuel
    Hey fellow UK folk

    Apparently some olive oil companies don't have much integrity and use veg oils instead. What olive oil do you guys use, and are you sure it has integrity?
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    Hi
    I use the Napolina extra virgin or the Belerio (spelling?) extra virgin. Never tasted them as use them in cooking, but they're supposed to be good for us.

    Never know if I should trust Aldi and Lidl products! They do taste good, but did you hear the "My Lidl Pony" joke? (that was it).

    I'm using Napolina extra virgin as well But it's reasonably cheap, so I'm wondering if it's the real deal...

    for regular stuff (cooking etc) I use Co-Ops own brand (they have two, Greek & Italian I think?)
    For salad dressings etc I have some posh stuff I picked up at TK Maxx a while back, Senorio de Jamie Rosell Maximum
    and this one...


    The last 2 are lush but ive no idea where you would get them normally or what they would cost

    Forgot to say, The Co-op oil is pretty good & I think real, the shop heating went on the blink a while back & their olive oil was going thick & cloudy just sitting on the shelves The stuff beside it (more expensive) stayed clear.....

    Yeah, real olive oil will go cloudy & solidify at lower temps, try popping it in the fridge to see if it goes cloudy/thick.
