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.

"I saw the KTC show where Richard was talking about how other companies mix other oils in with their own. I googled "olive oil cheaters" and found the same and more reported.
When I received my Seagate olive oil, I compared it to what I had at home. My oil smelled like oil. Seagate's smelled like opening a can of olives.
When I use it I smell olives. This is fantastic. I will never use another olive oil. Richard, please never stop production."

"excellent olive oil - clean taste - matter of fact best tasting olive oil i have ever had "
By: BayouWoman from Trout, LA US on January 25, 2014
"For many years, I have been paying a premium price for what I thought was a premium olive oil. I know now that the oil I was buying was not the real thing. It was being diluted with corn or canola oils, which should be in violation of the law. Seagate is totally different and totally wonderful. I will never go back to those supermarket and health food store brands. They are rip offs. "

"First Kudos to your packing department. It looks as though the carrier would have to have an elephant step on the package to break the bottle! I guess I have never tasted real olive oil before. The taste it adds to food is unmistakeable. "

"OMG this has got to be the best Olive Oil yet. I was not sure how I would like it when I purchased it but since I love all the Seagate Products I have gotten so far, I almost knew I was in for a pleasant surprise. Well guess what????? I was so pleased with the taste I can't help but use it on most everything and I truly love it and so will you. If you spend good $$ you want good quality and this is it. "
