Evoo: food or condiment?

Should we consider extra virgin olive oil exclusively as a condiment?
As much as it can accompany our co-star dishes, the answer is absolutely no!
In fact, extra virgin olive oil is one of the 240 foods to be considered functional thanks to its nutraceutical properties.
Let’s first define functional foods: these are characterized by the positive effects that they have on human health as a result of normal consumption.
In the specific case of extra virgin olive oil, its nutraceutical properties are linked to the content of oleic acid, polyphenols, vitamins and phytosterols, omega-3 and omega-6, components that make this product a real “weapon” of prevention.
So choosing the right extra virgin olive oil is good for the palate and for health!
