Abstract:
For millennia, fresh olive oil has been a necessity-- for food, medicine, beauty, and religion. Today's researchers continue to confirm the remarkable, life-giving properties of true extra-virgin, and 'extra-virgin Italian' has become the highest standard of quality. But what if this symbol of purity has become deeply corrupt? Starting with an explosive article in the New Yorker, Tom Mueller has become the world's expert on olive oil and olive oil fraud-- a story of globalization, deception, and crime from ancient times to the present and a powerful indictment of today's lax protections against fake and even toxic food products in the United States. Extra Virginity is an inspiring account of the people who are defending the extraordinary oils that truly deserve the name extra-virgin.
