We all have read or heard the benefits of olive oil. It is well known for its antioxidants and oleic acid, a mono saturated fat that protects the heart. It can bolster the immune system and help to protect against viruses, reduce blood pressure, lower “bad” low-density lipo-protein, prevent the onset of osteoporosis and others.
We know smell and taste are correlated. Now a new research suggests that the scent or aroma of olive oil can make a person feel more full after a meal, as compared to other oils and fats. [nytimes.com]
