'Light' olive oil refers to the light color and milder flavor - it is not lower in fat.  'Light' olive oils also have a higher 'smoke point,' so they may be used for high heat sauteing or frying.

Light olive oils have the same calories as other olive oils, about 120 calories per tablespoon. There is no official definition for 'light' olive oils.

Virgin Olive Oils are best used in uncooked foods, such as marinades and salad dressings.           Pure olive oils may be used for sauteing and frying at medium heat.

Store olive oil in a cool dark place for up to 6 months, or refrigerated for up to one year.  Refrigerated olive oil will become thick and cloudy, but will return to normal at room temperature.
