All oils are best kept (or stored) away from heat and light. This is especially so for unrefined oils such as extra virgin olive oil. A cool dark pantry or cupboard is the best location for olive oil when it is not on the prep counter being used as an ingredient. There are certain gourmet oils that are unstable and should be refrigerated, i.e. walnut and hazelnut oils. Fine gourmet olive oil is not an oil to store in the frig. Never store olive oil in a plastic or reactive metal container.

Olive Oil Cruet Among The Many Oil and Vinegar Cruets

Olive Oil Cruet

There is a reason the olive oil cruet has become a kitchen and dining table essential. More and more Americans are starting to acknowledge the differences between saturated fats and monounsaturated fats due to the high number of deaths produced by chronic diseases. Saturated fats have been associated with breast, colon and prostate cancer, unlike monounsaturated fats.

However, our diets should include a small amount of healthy fat since cells need it to function properly and they play an important role in good health as well. Since olive oil is composed mostly by monounsaturated fats, we can say that this ingredient should not miss from any of the Western diets. Considering the benefits of monounsaturated fats found in olive oil, it is safe to say that following a Mediterranean diet will surely improve our health and help us prevent several chronic diseases. A women’s risk of developing heart related diseases can be reduced by nearly 50% if she replaces just 5 percent of total daily calories that come from saturated fat with unsaturated fat.

This information has resulted from the Nurses Health Study performed at the Harvard University. Women can achieve these benefits simply by broiling and baking foods instead of frying them, and by changing dairy choices with other varieties that contain small amount of fat. By replacing 2 percentages of calories from saturated fats with unsaturated fats, people who consume high amounts of fat can reduce the chance of developing heart disease by nearly 50%.

Olive oil is a remarkable ingredient that can easily replace margarine or other similar processed foods, which is why an olive oil cruet set on the table is becoming more popular, especially in restaurants. Changing the saturated fats from your current diet with the monounsaturated fats contained by olive oil will not only help you improve your health, but it will also lower the risks of heart diseases. It is really important for us to keep cholesterol and saturated fat consumption at really low levels, and this can be achieved simply by adding enough monounsaturated fats in our diets.

The fat intake exceeds 35% of total daily calories consumed, in some particular regions surrounding the Mediterranean Sea. If we take under consideration the recommendation of North American experts, we can observe that this is really a high percentage of fat consumption. However, we also need to consider the type of fats included in the two pyramids. While the North American diets contain a combination of unsaturated and saturated fats, the Mediterranean diet relies mostly on monounsaturated fats that come from olive oil. Therefore, we can say that the last diet is much more beneficial for our health and can also help us prevent several heart diseases.
