Powdered olive oil? Interesting idea, but why? Is it better? Healthier? I don't know as I use healthy fresh real olive oil daily. What do you think?

Story
I keep hearing of using olive oil powder? I use plive oil daily but this powdered olive oil is not known to moi, but I hear on the palate it is amazing. Maltodextrin is a moderately sweet polysaccharide used as a food additive. It is produced from starch and is usually found as a creamy white hygroscopic powder. That means it binds to oil instead of water. Another great use for it is to mix it with caramel in a food processor. You then make caramel powder, that when places in your mouth turns back into a caramel syrup. They use this technique at Alinea in Chicago and many other trendy restaurants. Have you used it? Eaten it?
