Purity: Seagate 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil is derived from Seagate's own hand-picked olives. This product's quality and integrity are assured because Seagate is in control of the entire process, from harvesting the olives, producing the oil and bottling the finished product. There are no other oils blended into this Seagate product. It is 100% pure.
Extra Virgin Process: Seagate 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil has not been subjected to any heat or chemicals. This oil comes from the very first cold pressing of the oil. This is followed by gravity-fed filtration to remove the larger vegetable particles from the olive's skin and pulp that may have passed through the press. There is no other step in the processing other than filling the bottles.
Benefits: Seagate 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains very high levels of Oleic Acid (11 grams per 14 gram serving), a monounsaturated fatty acid that can reduce the risk of heart disease. This benefit is so strong that the FDA, which normally prohibits any disease claim for any food or health food product, allows this statement on olive oil labels - "Limited and not conclusive scientific evidence suggests that eating 2 tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive oil."
Taste: A high quality extra virgin olive oil will have a light green color and a very pleasant taste, with a slight olive after-taste, without any acidy residual flavor remaining in your mouth. Really good extra virgin olive oil should taste so good, that you will want to use it to dip your bread rather than applying butter. After you have tasted Seagate's product, the chances are that you will not want to go back to using the olive oil you had been previously using, and you will begin to prefer using Seagate's 100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil instead of butter.
Controversy: Most of the "Extra Virgin Olive Oil" entering the U.S. is not only not extra virgin, but is also not pure olive oil. It is a shame that when so many people are finally willing to switch from using saturated fats in their processed vegetables oils to using what they believe is pure extra virgin olive oil, that they are actually buying the same processed vegetable oils under false labeling in an olive oil bottle. The oils being used to water down the olive oil include: hazelnut, maize, sunflower, peanut, sesame, soybean, rice and pumpkin.

"This is the best tasting olive oil I’ve ever used (and I’ve always bought high-quality primo products). It actually tastes like you’re biting into an olive! I haven’t used it for cooking yet, but drizzled on salad and steamed veggies-yummy!"
Great olive oil

"I appreciate being able to buy an olive oil from a company that I can fully trust...Seagate. I bought 2 bottles as soon as I heard they were available. It tastes mild and makes a great salad dressing. They were very carefully packaged and arrived in a short time. Thank you, Seagate, for this new product."

"I have read that most EVOO sold in the grocery store is cut with cheap vegetable oil. Not so Seagate Olive Oil. I trust Seagate, a family owned and family run business. Their EVOO is pure and high in health-giving properties. It tastes so fresh. Like Doug Kaufman,it is my EVOO of choice."

"This olive oil is clean and fresh as opposed to others that are dark and heavy. Very fragrant. Loved it, already to the bottom of the bottle within a few weeks. Roasted Roma tomatoes from the farmers market for winter use using this olive oil. Use it making dinner each night. Excellent purchase:)"

"This is the real thing. I have never tasted olive oil this good. I read that most olive oils that you buy in the markets are either not actual 100% virgin or even 100% olive oil. Often the label can say 100% but there is really no regulation on labeling. I now know this must be true because this olive oil is by far the best tasting I've ever had. It tastes fresh and fantastic. Put this in your salads, drizzle on vegetables or dips and everyone will think you are a gourmet cook."
