Olive oil fans beware: Your beloved and expensive fruity tasting oil might be nothing more than soybean oil mixed with olive oil.

Much of the olive oil manufactured in Italy is cut with soybean oil or other cheaper oils and mixed with beta-carotene and chlorophyll to disguise the taste and flavor, Tom Mueller, who runs the blog Truth in Olive Oil, has uncovered.

The fraudulent oils are then exported with inaccurate labels to countries like Canada, ultimately leading the consumer to believe they are spending more money for a premium grade olive oil.
