I use California Olive Ranch and it's a good brand with a decent priceline.

This reminds me, I bought some Kirklands Xtra Virgin Olive OIl, I think it even says organic - it's in the fridge and not hardened.  Does this mean it's fake?? :-\

Hi Barb,


If it is in a large bottle, then it does take quite a while for the olive oil to thicken.  If you keep it on the door, it will take longer than if you had it stored near the back of the fridge.  I used to store my olive oil in the fridge, but now I just keep it in a kitchen cabinet.  It doesn't get rancid. Kirkland was rated as meeting the established standards for olive oil.  If you scroll further sown the article Jan posted, you will see this.

In the following updated article from the author of the one I posted, it is unclear ( 8) ) whether the refrigerator test is accurate.....
