Some consumers think that the freezing and dark color of olive oil shows that it is good quality, while some consumers think that it is poor quality. On the contrary, it is known that olive oil does not or does not freeze, its color is not clear or darkness is not an indicator of quality, and it is known that such properties are completely related to the region where olive is grown.

It is extremely difficult to determine whether the olive oil is of good quality by looking at the color, the characteristics of the soil where olive is grown and the time of harvest affects the color of the oil.

Olive oil prices are constantly rising due to the difficult production of olive oil and problems in the olive industry.
