The food industry is anything but shaky around the world these days, from meat glue to horse meat in

“beef” burgers. Who are we to trust? The latest scandal is fake olive found in Israel, including organic

varieties. Watch out for it anywhere. We sum up where to buy, and what to avoid. Some varieties sold

are not made for human consumption An Israeli watchdog TV show is good at uncovering scandals. They’ve found toxins in ceramic coated cookware, and slaughterhouse cruelty. Now, Kolbotek a consumer watchdog TV show found on Channel 10 began its 2013 season with a bang by revealing some unpleasant findings about olive oil being manufactured in Israel. Some of the olive oil being sold on the Israeli market is unfit for human consumption. We can assume the issue is more or less the same in other Middle East countries where testing standards are less developed. American sources have suggested that about 70 percent of virgin olive oil is a fake. The program covered various types and grades of olive oil including that being marketed by companies that virgin and extra virgin olive oil, including organic varieties.

Kolbotek sent 15 olive oil samples for testing at a special laboratory, Kemi Service, that included 9

bottles of oil from one company EVO Israel Ltd. EVO distributes its products to well known natural and whole foods stores in Israel. The company was reported to have imported more than 44 tons of olive oil from Spain, which is one of the world’s largest

olive oil exporters.

September 2012, a company working with EVO and located in the northern Galilee town of  Rosh Pina,

Chosen Galil Industries, was found to have larges amounts of this oil that was not for human

consumption after lab reports came in. Although in Hebrew, this link of the Kolbotek program is none-the-less revealing enough:

When asked what they thought about these events, Yigal Friedman, a food quality engineer for the

Ministry of Defense said “I don’t have an answer to these allegations.”

Another official, Shai Chen Institute manager for the Health Ministry, replied: “I don’t know what to

say.” When Green Prophet tried to contact EVO’s offices in Tiberius, a recorded message from the Bezeq

telephone company said that the number is no longer in service.

To indicate the scope of the laboratory findings, of 15 samples tested, 13 were found to  have much

higher levels of mono saturated fats and stearic acids than is acceptable, with an average level of 8

times the acceptable amount of mono saturated fats and 6 times the accepted level of stearic acid.
