Olive oil has saturated fats, so it hardens in the refrigerator

Fact

 

Olive oil is not a saturated fat. All fats will harden if they get cold enough, whether they are saturated or not. Olive oil often hardens, because it has not been refined to remove waxes. The presence of waxes does not make the olive oil saturated or unhealthy, it just means it is a natural product.
