A sting operation in Italy has yielded an unlikely cache of loot. Over 85,000 tons of freshly painted green olives were seized by police from food counterfeiters.
Saying your olive oil is sub-standard isn’t an accusation, it’s just a probability. Adulterated olive oil is extremely common and surprisingly hard to spot. If you’re curious, you might want to grab a bottle of ibuprofen and do a taste test.
A measured approach is always best when you're seasoning food. And to prevent a fresh slice of bread from being soaked and overpowered by olive oil poured from a bottle, this brilliant dispenser works like an over-sized ballpoint pen to evenly spread a thin coating of oil—instead of blue ink.
Anyone who has spent more than a few minutes cooking will tell you that olive oil is wonderfully delicious and deserves a place in every kitchen. But it also might just save your life. In a recent French study of people over the age of 65, those who regularly used olive oil had a remarkably lower rate of stroke.
