The categories of olive oil that can be marketed are:
 
 A. Virgin olive oils obtained by olive oil only by mechanical or other natural methods. The virgin olive oils are classified into extra virgin olive oil and virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil is the best quality as it contains up to 0.8% oleic acid.
 
 B. Olive oil - consisting of refined and virgin olive oils, obtained by blending refined olive oil and virgin olive oils.
 
 C. Pomace oil obtained by blending refined olive oil and virgin olive oils.
 
All we have to do is hold the oil in our mouth for a few minutes. We will need cold pressed olive oil.
