4 Brands of adulterated olive oil are disapproved by Protest
Olive oil has become an indispensable item for those looking for a healthier life. Used in recipe preparation or salad dressing, the extra-virgin version is the most recommended because it contains more photochemicals with antioxidant properties. However, many brands are not offering quality products to the consumer, according to Proteste - Brazilian Association of Consumer Protection.
The agency analyzed 20 brands that commercialize the product and four of them can not be considered as olive oil because content was adulterated with other types of vegetable oils. They are: Pramesa, Figueira da Foz, Tradition and Quinta d'Aldeia. In addition, in the total of analyzed products, seven were not extravirgin, as stated on the packaging: Qualitá, Beirão, Carrefour Discount, Filippo Berio, Figueira da Foz, Tradition and Quinta d'Aldeia.
Proteste also chose a product as The Best of Test and The Right Choice, Cook brand. The product was considered an authentic extra virgin olive oil, with quality and best cost-benefit among the evaluated products, according to the organ.
