Benefits of Spray Oil
Spray olive can be found in the pantry of almost every foodie in Australia
Spray olive can be found in the pantry of almost every foodie in Australia. It’s more and more common to use spray olive oil to easily and uniformly coat frying pans, baking trays and deep dishes with little fuss.
But is spray olive oil safe? And what exactly are the benefits of using spray olive oil?
Is Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray Safe?
Yes! A good quality extra virgin olive oil spray is completely safe.
It’s understandable to look at a new spray format of dispensing olive with sceptical eyes, we are so used to glugging the beautiful golden oil over our dishes (and there’s nothing wrong with that — in moderation). Perhaps over the years, we’ve learnt to be wary of anything in a spray format for its adverse health effects and environmental issues (such as spray deodorants and hairspray etc.).
But, of course when it comes to spray olive oil it contains none of the harmful chemicals found in some cosmetic sprays.
What is in La Española Spray Extra Virgin Olive Oil?
La Española Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains 100% Spanish olive oil. All of our high quality oil is made from 100% Spanish olives that are completely grown, harvested and bottled in Spain.
There are absolutely no additives, chemicals or preservatives in our spray olive oil and it is completely aerosol-free and propellent-free so you know that when you reach for your La Española Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spray you’re only using high quality Spanish olives and nothing more.
What is the Nutritional Information for Spray Olive Oil?
Not all spray olive oils are made equally. Naturally, the highest quality spray olive oil is extra virgin olive oil (just like traditional olive oil) and our olive at La Española is additive, chemical, and preservative-free.

What Are the Benefits of Cooking with a Quality Olive Oil Spray?
As we can see form the nutritional value of our spray olive oil, a quality extra virgin is very low in undesirable saturated fat and high in health-positive monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids (which can help reduce bad cholesterol levels and can lower your risk of heart disease and stroke).
Of course, as with any food, moderation is key. And if you are looking to reduce the amount of calories and fat in your diet, spray olive oil is a fantastic alternative to the classic method of pouring olive oil on your dishes and salads.
Olive oil spray helps us to reduce the amount of oil we use in our food by providing a consistent and equal amount of oil over the desired area (such as a baking dish or frying pan). The constituent coating of oil allows foodies like you to use less oil than traditional methods.
If the focus is to reduce your calorie or fat intake then our top tip is to only use the spray feature for 3-4 seconds which would only amount to around 12-15 calories!
