The Importance of Color In Olive Oil

It is often noted that deep green-colored extra virgin olive oils are superior to pale yellow-colored ones. Is this true? Not necessarily since unscrupulous extra virgin olive oil producers have been known to press some of the leaves of the olive trees along with the olives in order to impart a deep green color to their extra virgin olive oils. Truth be known, color really doesn’t play that major a role in the quality of extra virgin olive oils.
