Is my Kirkland olive oil real?

trolley | Jan 19, 201407:03 AM

I know this has been a big topic for a while. I read about it and then sort of shelved the idea that my extra virgin olive oil is probably fake. I just recently met a nutritionist (brief chance encounter) and she explained to me how seed oils are made. While I don't remember the details it sounded not so great. Then she told me she was reading this book called "Extra Virginity" which broke down the olive oil industry which basically isn't governed at all.

So now i'm off to find "real" olive oil. I think she said Kirkland Organic in a glass bottle. is there such a thing? I only found the organic in a plastic bottle so bought the one in glass. Now, i'm searching the internet and thinking my regular olive oil isn't real. Does anyone have a list of real olive oils? I can't seem to find one. Thanks.
