Extra virgin olive oil could protect food during cooking

The extra-virgin Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) olive oil was characterized by reduced levels of oxidation and hydrolysis, and superior amounts of minor antioxidant compounds. The chemical composition of olive oils are important parameters in their predictive behavior along the frying process, but mostly that olive oil is clearly resistant to frying conditions
