There has been fraud in the olive oil market for years.

Many folks have been hoodwinked and duped by bogus foods, including honey which turned out to be 87% white sugar; stuffed pork buns which were made of back-room processed cardboard; red wine highly adulterated with chemicals and containing only 13% grape but 12% alcohol; and very well known super-virginal olive oil, mostly soy bean oil but even the gourmet testers were fooled.

 

And no olive oil is grown in Thailand so all must be imported, adding to cost and probability of cheating.  I suggest rice bran oil or peanut oil for all your needs, except gear lube.  And, as an aside, i have found coconut oil best for sex lubrication and i will never use that crappy KY jelly stuff again.

I was on the same quest as op and chose a bottle of Extra Virgin cold pressed My Choice-Topps Own Brand, in partnership with Cordon Bleu, it says.  Just opened it and it tastes pretty good to me.

Been suspicious of olive oil since I lived in Spain and learned that they exported more than they produced. Supposedly mixed with greek and other stuff but who knows.

Only about 5% is true olive oil. 

95% be ok for the car.

Choice magazine tested them in Australua last year, look up results.

The figure is much higher than that. 

 

I wouldn't put it in a car. 

 

I have never heard of Australua - is it in the south pacific?

Why would the fact that olive oil is imported add to the probability of cheating?

 

What do you mean by 13% grape? 

 

And please provide links to pork buns stuffed with cardboard. If you are referring to the news report from China that was debunked as a hoax.

Coconut oil is easier on your bum?

Nice  C&P about the US Market.

 

However people may recall that this was sold at Makro, now seems to be featured at Tops. It's definitely worth picking up. You can do far worse than Monini. Although yes, virgin, extra virgin?! TIT; This is Thailand.
