OLIVE OIL FROM SPAIN #1 IN SALES
Extra virgin olive oil
We hope that your experience in our Olive Oil Store will be great! Luckily, in Spain we have innumerable oil mills that produce incredible EVOO, although it does not always reach the final consumer. Some packing firms do not hesitate to mix them with other oils of low quality to make them cheaper and sell more. This is fake!
We must fight back and bring our precious Liquid Gold directly to your table, eliminating those distributors, and thus guaranteeing a fair price of olive oil.
Extra virgin olive oil varieties
Actually it does not matter much the variety of olives, whether Arbequina, Hojiblanca, Picual or Cornicabra (the 4 basic varieties in Spain). In fact there are more than 230 varieties of olives, and that only in Spain! and some more in the rest of the world. What really counts is how the olive and its oil are treated throughout the process, from the tree till your table.
Extra virgin olive oil to take care of your health
Of course, it is essential that the milling process should be clean, fast and at low temperature, so that these precious polyphenols and antioxidants stay within the oil. Those small particles are actually responsible for the oil taste and flavor, but also protect us against illnesses such as cancer or Alzheimer.
It turns out that Dr. Gary Beauchamp, almost by chance, discovered a few years ago a molecule certainly special, the Oleocanthal. It has been proven (in laboratory) that this molecule has the incredible property of literally killing cancer cells.
It has also been proven that its monounsaturated fatty acids, specially oleic acid, help to reduce the bad cholesterol (LDL) and increase the good ( HDL).
Actually, these types of fats are highly recommended for people suffering from Type II Diabetes and helps them regulate their blood sugar levels. Not to forget that cholesterol and its heart deseases remain the main cause of mortality in developed countries.
Calories of olive oil
Certainly, olive oil, like all vegetable fats, is highly caloric, about 900Kcal/100g. But EVOO “adheres” better to food than other fats and therefore the intake remains lower.
In addition, Extra Virgin oil also has more flavor than its siblings sunflower, coconut, palm, … so that a few drops of EVOO are enough. And let’s not forget its satiating effect that prevents us of overeating.
