What's the difference between olive oil and extra virgin olive oil?

Extra virgin olive oil is the highest quality olive oil. Despite many different regulations that classify extra virgin olive oil, it must be pressed from fresh olives under lower temperatures that will not degrade the oil. Regular olive oil is considered a refined oil, since heat or chemicals are used to extract the oil. Remember, all types tend to degrade over time so make sure to consume the "good stuff" within about 2 years.
