We are now bottling our Heritage Olive Oil in an elegant 750ml dark glass bottle.
“The health benefits of olive oil are 99 percent related to the presence of the phenolic compounds, not the oil itself,” says Nasir Malik, research plant physiologist at the U.S. Agriculture Department’s Agricultural Research Service.
This olive oil is very fresh and rich in antioxidants. It has a high available biophenol content : 605 ppm (parts per million) compared with 222 ppm for most extra virgin olive oils. In other words its biophenol content is 2.7 times the average. Very high phenolic content and excellent stability should provide long shelf life of over a year as well as beneficial health value. This olive oil has, along with its bitterness and pungency, mineral and green vegetable organoleptic characteristics.
We invite you to rejoice in its robust, sharp flavor. Those in the know will understand how its pungency enhances the flavors of food.
When analyzed by World Olive Labs (Greece) it has been shown to have very high levels of oleocanthal, oleacein and oleuropein aglycon. These are all natural biophenols. We suggest you research their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardioprotective and neuroprotective activity.
The Free Fatty Acid (oleic free acidity) of this oil is a very low 0.20%; the international allowance is 0.8%, the California Olive Oil Council allows 0.5%. This means that we are offering an olive oil in its most pristine state – its benefits are coming to you with as few oxidants or free radicals as possible.
Packaged in a BPA-free Glass Bottle.
