In the U.S., low-quality, often refined oil is sold using this designation. It refers, however, to the flavor rather than the caloric content. These light olive oils are often tasteless, odorless and colorless and are definitely not healthier than other olive oils. This designation is not allowed in olive oils from Europe.
As far as we are concerned at Little Angel, the only thing light about “light” olive oils lies with their lack of nutrients, quality, and flavor.
