Extra Virgin Olive Oil can come in a wide variety of colors, ranging from a light pale yellow to a dark green.  Color depends on the varietal of olives used and their ripeness; the color does not denote an olive oils’ quality or flavor.  All refined olive oils are usually light in color due to the high heat processing they undergo.
