EVOO isn't on the list, but I don't think it requires one, either.

Are you trying to be funny? Banging head

I guess I wasn't specific enough.

What packaged/processed food do not need a hechsher?

Anything processed needs a hechsher. Basically the only things that don't need a hechsher are fruits, vegetables, eggs, nuts, and water.

There will be different opinions on this. I can tell you what I do, but there are definitely people stricter and more Lenient than me

I heard that sugar and water don't need a hechsher (in the US), would love to have that confirmed by someone who knows for sure.

LOL water??? Ok, sorry but if I stop all this one day it will be because of such charlatanism.

There are many things to be bought by ingredients in my world.

Ruchel, how do you know what's in bottled water? I'm sure there are a lot of people who would not buy water without a hechsher.... I'm glad someone I know took a moment to ask, so it's clarified.

Not according to many, many poskim. This kind of blanket statement is what causes one Jew to say another Jew isn't frum. (Thereby violating a halacha in the name of a chumra).

The crc lists many foods that don't require hashgacha, as does Rabbi Eidlitz, The star k etc. Name one posek who says everything needs a hashgacha, including salt, sugar, paper plates etc.

Europe has been different for years in this regard. If I remember correctly most products don't have a hechsher and you work off a list.

Yes, we're used to seeing an o-u on bottled water, so it becomes sort of reflexive to look for it.

I don't know anyone who looks for an OU on their water!

In the case of traveling, if you don't read the language of the country, you need to know if there are brands that have additives.

For the poster that wrote eggs don't need a hechsher. I found out that not all chickens that lay eggs are kosher and when they aren't their eggs are not kosher. I'm not sure the specifics but we raise chickens and this was brought to my attention. I always thought all chickens and eggs were kosher but they aren't.
