Olive oil has been the main food in the Mediterranean diet since the origins of agriculture.
Extra virgin olive oil is extracted only with cold mechanical processes (pressure), a process that allows the nutritional components to be kept unaltered while the other vegetable oils are subjected to chemical-physical transformations that impoverish them of those components that make extra virgin food. with high protective function for our organism both in the gastro-enteric and hepato-biliary and cardiovascular systems.
Responsible for the bitter spicy taste are the oily microparticles which, separated from the water by centrifugation, are rich in chlorophyll, phenols, carotenoids, phytosterols and tocopherols: that is, vitamin E which has an antioxidant function and fights cellular aging.
The use of EVO oil in the kitchen, ideal for use raw, is equally suitable for cooking and also for frying foods, making them more delicate.
