Flavor Your Life Campaign with Zucchi's Extra Virgin Olive Oil- Review

Welcome to A Sampling Bee! Today, I share with you Flavor of Life Campaign with Zucchi's Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The Flavor of Life Campaign aims to educate North American consumers about authentic extra virgin olive oil from Europe. With funding from the European Union, the Italian government, and a consortium of European Extra Virgin Olive Oil producers, Flavor of Life is debunking misconceptions while empowering consumers. The campaign was designed to educate US consumers so that we can make informed decisions when purchasing Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from the drupe of the Olea europaea, or European olive. EVOO is made by pressing without heat or chemicals. EVOO is free of acidity. This is to assure quality rather than taste. Overly processed and rancid oils contain higher levels of oleic acid. Experts also test for taste defects and for the presence of positive attributes of fruitiness, bitterness and spiciness. If an oil does not have the correct amount of fruitiness or harmonious balance, it does not receive an Extra Virgin rating.

Olive Oil can be used for sautéing, deep frying and baking. It has a high smoke point of 400 degrees. Between uses, store the oil in a dark and cool place. It is advised not to keep it on the counter top near a stove or in the refrigerator. Keep the oil around 57 degrees, if possible. Screw the lid on tightly and use the oil within 6 months, or within 18 months of purchasing.

My Thoughts

This is a great campaign. I am so for educating people on the importance of watching what they put into their bodies. I have always heard that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a lot healthier for you than a vegetable oil. EVOO has some good benefits including: lowering cholesterol because its rich in monounsaturated fats. I love using an extra virgin olive oil when cooking and I use one on a daily basis. So, I was excited to try Zucchi's EVOO. I used Zucchi's to sauté some veggies and fish. As well as to make a homemade salad dressing. The fruitiness of Zucchi's is great. I have never tasted a EVOO quite like Zucchi's. The uses for an EVOO are endless. I highly recommend that your read more on the Flavor of Life campaign as well as try Zucchi's Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

  1. i have learned to cook when i was a teenager, but i only learned the importance of choosing the right cooking oil we use for cooking only three years ago when my younger sister was diagnosed with the big C. her doctor who practices naturopathy taught us the importance of being extra careful on what we eat. that's when i learned that olive oil is the best oil to use when cooking because of its multiple health benefits. i will surely try this zucchi's extra virgin coconut oil! thanks for sharing!

  2. I go through olive oil like crazy! It is a staple in my cooking - I will have to look for this kind.

  3. Great to know! I pay attention to a lot of the foods we eat, but I honestly never even thought about olive oil. I will have to try Zucchi's.

  4. I only use olive oil as a salad dressing. I guess I have to use it more often, after reading your post. I will have to use olive oil instead of vegetable oil in cooking from now on.
