Our expert says:
Olive oil is one of the very best oils you could possibly use being rich in monounsaturated fatty acids that protect the heart. The only thing that could affect the quality of any oil, not just olive oil, is if it is used over and over again for deep frying. The high heat and repeated heating causes changes in the fatty acid composition of the oils and this can have a negative effect on health. So use your olive oil in cooking and salads and even for frying, but remember to discard the oil after frying.
