Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra Virgin olive oil is the pillar of our Mediterranean Diet and we want to thank you for your trust. We also hope that your experience is satisfactory.
You will see testimonials from our clients valuing our products and service.
In Spain we have innumerable mills that produce an incredible EVOO, although unfortunately, it does not always reach the final consumer.
In fact, this happens because there are large distribution companies that do not hesitate to mix them with other oils of low quality to cut costs.
We want to break this toxic trade and put our precious Fluid Gold directly on the table of each family, by eliminating intermediaries to guarantee a fair price.
Types of olive oil
Actually, the variety of the olive does not matter much, whether Arbequina, Hojiblanca, Picual or Cornicabra (the 4 basic varieties). In fact we have more than 230 varieties of olives, only in Spain, which determine the different types of olive oil.
In addition, if we count the Coupage (mixtures of olives of different varieties before crushing them), the number of combinations grows even more.
But what really matters is how the olive is treated throughout the process, from the olive tree to our table, every step counts.
Health, the key are the polyphenols
It was Dr. Gary Beauchamp, almost by chance, who discovered the Oleocanthal molecule a few years ago. A polyphenol certainly special, only present, and in minimal quantities, in Extra Virgin Oil.
Beauchamp showed (in the laboratory) that this molecule has the incredible property of literally kill cancer cells.
- Cancer and Alzheimer’s: when the milling process is clean, fast and at low temperature, the oil preserves the precious polyphenols and antioxidants. These micro-components give the aroma and flavor to EVOO, while protecting us against cancer or Alzheimer’s.
Cancer, after cardiovascular diseases, is the second cause of global mortality. However, this disease seems to affect the Mediterranean countries to a much lesser extent.
- Cholesterol: it is proven that quality extra virgin olive oil helps us to fight cholesterol. Their monounsaturated fatty acids reduce the bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase the good (HDL).
Cardiovascular diseases continue to be the main cause of mortality in developed countries.
- Diabetes: this type of fats are highly recommended also for people suffering from type II diabetes, regulating their blood sugar levels.
Calories from olive oil
Certainly, olive oil, like the rest of vegetable fats, is highly caloric. But if it is extra virgin olive oil it “adheres” better to food and in the end it we consume less.
In addition, having more flavor and aroma than their brothers sunflower, coconut, palm, … a few drops of EVOO are enough, which means less calories too.
Finally, let’s not forget its satiating effect, which prevents us from overeating.
Buy award-winning olive oil?
Of course, when you buy EVOO that has been awarded in the NYOOC, Japan Olive Oil or Terraolivo (Israel), the oil has to be good. These contests have panels of prestigious judges, but the important thing is that the tastings are blind.
However, to these contests barely 5% of the EVOOs in the world are presented, and they tend to be “the same”. These are companies that can afford the expenses associated with these marketing and advertising campaigns.
But there are innumerable small oil mills that do not show up, less known, but with excellent EVOO!
