Cheapest real EVOO?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Been craving OO like crazy, but I've avoided EVOO lately due to so many adulterated products on the market. I would go and buy one of the really nice ones but the budget isn't really there at the moment, and I can't find anything at a reasonable price thats certified. What are the cheapest unadulterated EVOO's you've found?

Put it in the fridge. If it doesn't solidify, it's not really olive oil.

I'm going to take a guess that anything in a dark green/brown/back glass bottle is going to be real. I don't think manufacturers would bother doing that for adulterated/canola oil. I start craving olive oil when the weather warms up :) Thinking of pouring it over a greek style salad or boiled potatoes... or over red pepper tomato fish stew... oh yeah. Thinking of warm weather grilled food like sardiiiiiines...

I actually buy one at Walmart called California Olive Ranch EVOO. It tastes excellent, the best I've personally tried, but I don't know how to test it's adulteration. It almost tastes too good to be true. I don't know if it's cheap for EVOO either but it seems so if the quality is to be believed.

Most imported olive oils labelled as extra virgin are actually adulterated. Mark's Daily Apple has a post about this. here; it includes a link to a UC Davis report that names many common brands. California Olive Ranch and Kirkland were the only brands I recognized which consistently tested as EVOO.

What do you mean by "certified"? Do you mean certified organic? Trader Joe's has an organic EVOO at a good price that tastes fine. I get my olive oil at costco in these big green glass jars. I've been happy with it but maybe you know more about it than I do and there's a reason not to get that one?
