Heart Healthy, High Antioxidant Olive Oil
Deliciously Good For You
Antioxidants are powerful substances that protect our body from the damaging effects of free radicals in our body.
Our delicious 100%, first cold pressed, PDO, extra virgin olive oil from the sun-drenched island of Crete is crammed full with them and can make us heart healthy when used as part of our daily diet.
Made solely from lovingly nurtured olives of the Koroneiki variety, this particular oil is high in polyphenol antioxidants (more than 250mg/kg), promoting a healthy heart.*
Harvested as the olives turn a beautiful rainbow of greens and purples, they are pressed and bottled within hours, producing a delicious, vibrant, fruity oil with notes of pepper and a gentle sweetness.
It’s perfect for cooking, dressings or drizzled over salads, vegetables, pasta, fish and meats, providing a wonderful synergy of health and taste.
And you can enjoy our oil knowing it’s of exceptional quality which will never vary from bottle to bottle.**
