Wasnt there a program on BBC a while back that tested Olive oils and Napolina was the worst Olive oil, literally had no health benefits.

It would be great if you provide a link to this story.

From a questioning stance, I'd wonder why Napolina olive oil is worse than the other brands. My feeling would be that oils produced using the same ingredients and the same processes would be very similar in terms of their health benefits, whilst taste might vary.

It was one of the ones Michael Mosley presents.

Think it was Trust Me I’m a Doctor on BBC2. Series 4.. Episode 3.

Napolina came bottom of all the oils they tested.

Thanks for the clarification. I've watched the episode in question via Stream All The Sources and as far as I can see there is no test of brands of olive oil. There's a comparison between the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil against standard olive oil and this concludes that they both have equal benefits. However, as I say, there is no testing of olive oil brands.
