OLIVE OIL: FROM LUXURY TO TRAFFIC
The star of the kitchen
Its taste and benefits have made olive oil one of the stars of the kitchen. For some, it can even be enjoyed as a great vintage wine and is said to have numerous virtues: healthy, anti-cholesterol and even, surprisingly for a fatty product, dietetic.
But everything has a price, from 5 to 10 euros per litre for the industrialized kind and from 15 to 40 euros from local producers. But olive oil attracts beyond lovers of Mediterranean flavours.
