The Island of Crete in Greece is the birthplace of the Mediterranean Diet. This lifestyle is attributed to lower instances of cardiovascular disease and longevity in Crete and throughout the Mediterranean. The grove where our oil is produced is located here and operates with a holistic approach to respecting nature and has a deep commitment to organic farming.
What makes the olive oil from Crete special?
This olive oil is imported directly from the island of Crete, where the excellent climate and soil quality along with thousands of years of experience in the art of making olive oil has made it one of the finest olive oils in the world. It is celebrated as being the best for its high polyphenol content and low acidity levels. From a human physiological standpoint, phenolic compounds are readily absorbed through intestinal tract walls and are vital in defense responses, such as anti-aging, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-proliferative activities.
