    Any difference between the two, or is it just the taste?

    Extra virgin olive oil is from the first cold pressing of the olives. Subsequent presses often employ heat to extract any remaining oil from the olives.

    which would mean that with no heat theres more nutrients etc and it also has the most flavor and would also explain why its thicker and darker, thank you mr. henderson
