40/5000 Can you cook with extra virgin olive oil? Extra virgin olive oil is better for frying and roasting than other vegetable oils such as sunflower oil, linseed oil, peanut oil and refined olive oil. Autralian researchers found that when heated above 180 ° extra virgin olive oil produced the lowest number of harmful substances. There have been many cowboy stories in recent years that it is less safe to cook with extra virgin olive oil. However, according to a nutritionist from the Olive Oil Times, the Australian study provides clear evidence that this is not the case.
