Few days ago on MDA there was a post of his talking about olive oil. In the comments section someone brought up the fact that a lot of olive oils are fake and aren't 100% pure. This freaked me out a bit as I consume it daily. Apparently there is a test where you can stick the bottle in the fridge and if it solidifies overnight its real, if it stays liquid its fake(not sure about the accuracy of this method).
So I tested it out using 1/2 a cup worth in a glass cup. There was no change overnight but I decided to just leave it in there. On the second morning about 1/2 of it had solifidied, while the top half remained a liquid. This led be to believe that it was maybe 50% olive oil. However the next morning about 80% of it had solidified, and almost all of it by the next.
So obviously it wasnt a very conclusive test and I still have no idea whether my EVOO is legit or not. Has anyone ever heard of it being fake? And If so do you know of any alternate testing methods?
