    In foods, olive oil is used as a cooking and salad oil. In manufacturing, olive oil is used to make soaps, commercial plasters and liniments; and to delay setting in dental cements. Olive oil is classified, in part, according to acid content, measured as free oleic acid. Extra virgin olive oil contains a maximum of 1% free oleic acid, virgin olive oil contains 2%, and ordinary olive oil contains 3.3%. Unrefined olive oils with more than 3.3% free oleic acid are considered “unfit for human consumption.”
