8 amazing things you never knew

about extra virgin olive oil!

And why you should be buying some right now.

It's the truth big food companies
don't want you to hear!


They would have you believe your oil should be clear and tasteless. They spend millions of dollars advertising that corn oil is just as good for you as extra virgin olive oil. They use words like "light" and "pure" to trick consumers into thinking that particular oil is good for them.  


According to Tom Mueller — a who wrote a scandalously revealing book on the subject of extra virgin fraud — 70% of the extra virgin olive oil sold is adulterated, meaning it's cut with cheaper oils!  Worse than that, they use extremely harsh and toxic chemicals to produce this so called "virgin" oil!  Beware and look for TRUE extra virgin olive oil.

Not all olive oils are created equal

Just two tablespoons a day:

Extra virgin olive oil makes food taste better


Tom Mueller describes extra virgin olive oil as permeating your food “losing itself but subtly changing everything.”

Use it to finish off all your dishes — from salads and soups to sauces and sautees — and you’ll bring out the natural, delicious flavors in all your food. 

Since real extra vigin olive oil is nothing more that the oill from crushed olives, it's virtual impossible to have genetically modified oil. The olive trees are too old (well, at least the ones most small producers are using) to have every undergone any franken-science.  


And unless you doctor your oil something like seed oil, which makes it anything but extra virgin olive oil, there's no way any GMO is getting into the bottle!

True extra virgin olive oil is GMO free


Making other oils generally requires the use of industrial solvents, typically hexane. To remove this solvent and eliminate unpleasant tastes and odors, the oils are then processed in a refinery, where they undergo high-temperature desolventization, neutralization, deodorization, bleaching, and degumming. The end result is a tasteless, odorless, colorless liquid fat.  Sounds anything but healthy to us!


True extra virgin olive oil on the other hand, is purely crushed olives. All natural, nothing added.

Real extra virgin olive oil is made just by pressing olives


A lot of people don't realize extra virgin olive oil should tickle the back of your throat and may even make you cough.


Having been taught by big food companies that their oil should be tatestless, they sometimes think this tickle means the oil is rancid. It's anything but!  Pepperiness is one of the three official positive attributes, together with bitterness and fruitiness, identified in the legal definition of extra virginity. 


Studies show that this “pinch” has the same anti-inflammatory properties as Ibuprofen!  That's why we say Villa Cappelli is "The one with the Puglia Pinch™!"

Real extra virgin olive oil will tickle your throat.


Trust a farm, not a factory!


Big industrial food companies tend to give you just that, big industrial food. They are only concerned with their bottom line and are not out to produce good, quality extra virgin olive oil. That is why many of them doctor the oil to cut their costs and make more money.


Find a producer you cant trust, like Villa Cappelli, a small, family owned and operated farm. When it's a family making extra virgin olive oil using ancient, traditional Italian techniques you know it's going to be good.

Yes, you read that correctly. "Who" not "What."  Because Villa Cappelli is not some nameless corporation who cares only about their bottom line. It's a family who cares about your family.  


Long story short, Villa Cappelli began in 2005, but it was an idea that had lived in founder Paul Cappelli’s head for years.  Having moved to the states when he was 7, Paul always dreamed of returning to his homeland.  While visiting family in Puglia with his three kids, he came upon an abandoned villa and through the years painstakingly restored it to the agritorismo it is today. 


Paul wanted to share his love of Italy with the rest of the world, and thus began selling olive oil from his family’s land plucked from trees growing on the shoulders of the ancient Via Appia and estate bottled in Terlizzi (Puglia), Italy.
