Last week had an incident with Olive Oil. Prepared Moroccan chicken and thought smelt and tasted of fish. Blamed the chicken. Then my wife prepared pasta and added olive oil to stop it sticking. We became aware of a fishy smell. As the Olive oil was the common factor, investigated the bottle. label said it was enriched with Omega 3. Source of Omega 3 was fish oil.
Will now carefully check labels.
Incidentally, in the 70s, used to sell oil soluble chlorophyll to Italy. We understood used by the olive oil industry, presumably to give an 'extra virgin' appearance.

Indeed, and moreso, italians use to buy "olive" oil from Turkey and bottle it and sell it at a premium in the UK because all italian is so trendy! If you want good quality extra-virgin olive oil at very good prices please PM (sorry Lindsey)
