Olive oil is an oil very rich in oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid. It also contains vitamin E and especially polyphenols which give it its nutritional qualities and its health benefits. Finally, it contains few saturated fatty acids, which is an advantage, our Western diet being far too rich.
