All studies carried out to date by scientists from different universities, come to the same conclusion: that we need to include extra virgin olive oil in our diet, using it in the kitchen for everything (both raw and hot in stews and fried foods, etc.), within the framework of a healthy diet.

The event culminated with the intervention of the Quality Manager of the D.O. oil from the Sierra de Cádiz, Lola ortega, manager of the Regulatory Council of the D.O., entity of which we have already spoken more than once.
