yes my local same full pallet if someone wanna buy now,really good for salad and home made pasta

Great deal. Heat added.

But have been told olive oil loses its health properties if heated too much. I don't cook with it - I use rapeseed oil for cooking which is supposed to be just as healthy as olive oil. I cook my fried courgettes and add olive oil after cooking for the flavour.

I saw these yesterday , too.

spot on olive oil is to drizzle on food not to fry with !

Olive oil can't take high heat. Coconut oil is the way to go when frying etc

No it isn't! Buy the refined rather than virgin. I haven't used anything else since working in Spain in the 1990s. I still use virgin for cooking if I am going to have it as part of the food rather than just for frying; adds a bit more flavour.

There's a big difference between frying at high temperatures & cooking at lowish temperatures (< 150C on the hob, <200C or so in the oven).

Olive oil is great to roast potatoes, fry chicken Vienna schnitzel etc. You can deffo cook with it and it's far better for you than traditional UK frying oils.

Just treat it gently.

In that village in Italy where they all live to 95, all the residents consume an average of half a litre of olive oil a week! Anybody want to see the story?

ITALY

Tucked away in the Italian countryside, just a couple of hours from Rome, stands a magical hilltop. Known by scientists as the “village of eternal youth”, the average life expectancy in Campodimele is 95 years. Compare that with the Italian average of 77.5 for men and 83.5 for women. In addition, their cholesterol levels are some of the healthiest in the world. In the Eighties, the World Health Organisation discovered that the cholesterol in 80‑year-olds was similar to that of newborn babies.

Why are they living so long? There’s no doubt that they have longevity in their genes. Yet it’s what they do with those genes. I spent a day with Geraldo and Liana. They are 85 and 83 respectively, yet look and move like they’re at least 10 years younger.

I ask them to show me what they eat. Geraldo invites me on his Vespa, and I am half-expecting him to take me to the supermarket; instead, we roll down the hill to feed his chickens and check on his wheat fields. As for the supermarket, he laughs and tells me that the closest one is 50 kilometres away and he’s never been.

On returning home, his wife Liana is preparing lunch. A delicious rustic feast of pasta, passata, chickpeas, lashings of olive oil, and a substantial goblet of deep, fruity red wine poured from an old Evian bottle. The difference is that every single element is home-grown and home‑made. Being almost completely self-sufficient, each week this couple spend a few euros on just two extras – milk and coffee.

Geraldo and Liana are not an exception to the rule. Professor Cugini has studied the town since the Eighties and refers to their diet as “hyper-Mediterranean”. It’s all the best bits of the Mediterranean diet, turned up full blast. The villagers enjoy top-quality, home-produced fresh ingredients that are packed full of vitamins and minerals. Their diet is low in meat and almost devoid of red meat and butter.

The people here consume an average of one litre of olive oil a week, the perfect recipe for heart health – washed down with two glasses of red wine a day to offer a daily injection of antioxidant polyphenols.

Despite running water and electricity, the people in Campodimele are living a life much as they would have done 1,000 years ago. This isn’t feasible for most of us, but if we all ate a little more like them, we might just feel the benefits.

One can only hope that somewhere in a parallel universe, the tuck trolley being wheeled around my dad’s hospital ward is loaded with a Campodimele harvest and, rather than crisps and chocolate, it is fresh vegetables and olive oil that are being administered.

Great posting! I regularly buy Primadonna from Lidl and rate this highly. At this price it's a steal!

Good deal. Thanks op
