Oils aint Oils…..

It’s what our sign says at the Cygnet Market.

Oils aint Oils

Are you old enough to remember the Castrol GTX oil advertisement?  I’m sure there are plenty of people who can remember that quirky ad. that was on television in the 1980’s.

When we say Oils aint Oils, we are trying to point out that there are a number of big companies that would have us believe that they are selling us extra virgin olive oil when in fact its almost the exact opposite.

Most of us know that Olive Oil is good for us.  Researchers have advised us that the oil is monounsaturated and is full of antioxidants.

Way back in 1999, ABC’s Quantum was extolling the virtue of consuming Olive Oil.  Nowadays, even more is known about the benefits of Olive Oil and Government agencies promote Olive Oil as a way to reduce your risk of chronic disease development and also increase life expectancy.   Read more here.

Since 2008 (and possibly earlier), however, industry groups and consumer watchdogs have been warning us about the substitution of low grade Olive Oil (and even other oils) for Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Read reports from the Weekly Times about the  Imported Olive Oil Ripoff and from the ABC’s Landline about this issue.

You can be confident that the Extra Virgin Olive Oil that we sell is very fresh and stays fresh longer due to the unique packaging used (casks do not allow the air to infiltrate like it does in a bottle).

You can taste and enjoy the quality of South Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil when you visit the Cygnet Market.  Dip my sourdough bread into the Olive Oil from Patlin Gardens and taste the difference.

…and.. for those who remember or not…here’s Sol

Remember folks, Oils aint Oils!
