I am sure I saw this in CLEAR bottles (which look yellow due to colour of the oil). It is the MILD EXTRA VIRGIN OIL 500ml size.

Don't know if other types are included. I would guess not as the green bottles tend to be more expensive as they are full bodied.

I didn't buy today as offer runs until 27th March so plenty of time yet but it is a great price for Extra Virgin Olive oil, albeit "mild".

this is suitable for shallow frying, because of the milder taste.

Hot!

I don't think you're right in what you say. As far as I am aware, no Extra Virgin Olive Oil is suitable for frying. The Filippo Berio site confirms this:

As you'll see, both the standard Olive Oil and the Mild & Light Olive Oil are suitable for frying.

I've always used olive oil for shallow frying - whatever I have got in....mild, strong, virgin, extra virgin etc. As long as you don't use too much, it is not going to set on fire, although it can smoke a bit.

You can ruin an olive oil by applying high heat though. That's why the manufacturers don't recommend it with the more expensive, extra virgin oils.

I take on board what you're saying, but what I've read suggests that Extra Virgin Olive Oil has a lower burning point, so will obviously smoke more. For example:

For stir-frying, it’s best to stick with olive oil, and stay away from the extra-virgin and virgin grades. Standard olive oil goes through a more rigorous refining process than extra-virgin and virgin olive oils. This gives it a higher smoking point, meaning that it can take the high heat needed for stir-frying.

The Co-op have 500ml bottles of various types of Bertolli Olive Oil, including standard and Extra Virgin for £1.74, so this is a good alternative.

You're absolutely right - definitely best to use standard olive oil as it is the extra virgin and virgin varieties (including the mild which is on offer) which are ruined by high heat and cause smoking.

I once tried rice bran oil which sounded like the "perfect" oil - high smoking point and odourless but it was tastelss as well so I didn't really like it. Can't beat a slug of good old olive oil.
