These are the brands that failed the test:

  • Carapelli
  • Mezzetta
  • Pompeian
  • Mazola
  • Primadonna
  • Colavita
  • Sasso
  • Antica Badia
  • Star
  • Whole Foods
  • Felippo Berio
  • Safeway
  • Coricelli
  • Bertolli

On the other hand, the following brands are trustworthy:

  • Lucero
  • McEvoy Ranch Organic
  • Corto Olive
  • Omaggio
  • Bariani Olive Oil
  • California Olive Ranch
  • Lucini
  • Ottavio
  • Cobram Estate
  • Olea Estates
  • Kirkland Organic

Additionally, you can also test the olive oil you have at home. You should put the bottle in the fridge for half an hour, and if it starts to solidify, it means that the oil is pure, as it contains a large amount of monounsaturated fat.

On the other hand, if it does not solidify, it is fake. Yet, just to be sure, look for official governmental seals of approval on the label, like “Australian Extra Virgin Certified” and “California Olive Oil Council Certified Extra Virgin.”

    Not so sure this article is “Real News” as per the information in it concerning a simple test to see if the Oil is “Real or Fake” ( you can also test the olive oil you have at home. You should put the bottle in the fridge for half an hour, and if it starts to solidify, it means that the oil is pure ) It just so happens that I currently have a bottle of a brand this article says is “Fake” or of poor quality and I got news for them it has solidified. The Brand I have ? POMPEIAN
