  • Nutritional and Health Benefits

    Olive oil is the oil extracted from olives that are extracted from the olive tree. It’s considered to be discovered in Greece, thus why it’s considered part of the Mediterranean diet.  


     Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is the juice of the olive fruit. This is because the way EVOO is produced does not undergo high heat and chemical refining. It is the least refined and processed. The technique used is called cold pressed/extraction under a temperature of preferably no more than 28oC. EVOO is considered the healthiest type because it’s mostly natural and standardized for purity.

     

     

    EVOO nutritional composition.

     

    It contains a decent amount of vitamins K and E, and plenty of beneficial monounsaturated fatty acids. It has plenty of powerful antioxidants – they can help fight off various diseases and strengthen the human immune system. The primary antioxidants in extra virgin olive oil include natural anti-inflammatory.

     

     

     

     

  • Ideas to enjoy and Storage

    As extra virgin olive oil has a stronger, more peppery taste it may be best kept for drizzling and dipping rather than cooking with. EVOO make best Salad Dressings, Pestos, Hummus, topped on Sauteed vegetables, Tossing Potato salad, drizziling on Herbed Rice, make your own Flavoured EVOO to use in salad.

     

    Storage of EVOO 

     

    Ideally, buy EVOO olive oil in a dark bottle, as light degrades the oil and can turn it rancid. 

    • Dark glass bottles or stainless steel containers offer better protection than plastic bottles.
    • EVOO is both light and heat sensitive. That’s the reason good quality EVOO is sold in tinted glass bottles.
    • With time, the level of healthy antioxidants start deteriorating, so buy smaller bottles and use them within 3-4 months.
    • EVOO has a tendency to go rancid, so it needs to be stored in a cool dry place away from light to preserve the flavour,means it’s best to store in a cupboard and not on the kitchen surface where it can be exposed to sunlight.
    • Don’t place a big bottle of EVOO near the hob as the heat from the flame may deteriorate the quality of oil.
    • Pouring a small quantity in a bottle for daily use and storing the rest in the fridge prolongs its life as the bigger bottle is not opened repeatedly and exposed to air.
    • EVOO turns a bit cloudy in the fridge but will get back to normal on reaching room temperature.
