The olive tree has a longstanding history in Greek culture and life since the early ages. Olive oil has been an essential part of Greeks life bringing them health as well as wealth. Olives have historically not only being used as food but also in many other industries such as medicine, diet, and cosmetics, and even lighting.
Greece, as is widely accepted as one of the top three olive oil-producing countries in the world, and their extra virgin olive oil is indisputably the finest on the market worldwide. Greek extra virgin olive oil, in comparison to other extra virgin olive oils produced worldwide, has the lowest acidity (approximately 0.5%), which is considered substantially lower than the minimum 0.9% setup from the EU and US authorities. Consuming it is one of the easiest single choices you can make to take control of your health and of your family and we are pleased to be able to offer our customers our unique Olive Oils.
As already noted in one of our previous blogs (click here to have a see more about Extra Virgin Greek Olive Oil form the Greek Deli) Greek oil, is not only tasty but also has numerous health benefits such as lowering cholesterol & blood pressure, reducing the risk of cancer as well as the levels of obesity in one’s diet. In addition, it is rich in vitamins which makes it highly favourable for many and especially diabetics.
The combination of Greece’s unique climate along with its many olive varieties allows us to produce olive oils with increased levels of specific phenolic ingredients, which contributes in helping us avoid excessive damage from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is regularly linked to illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, atherosclerosis and even cancer.
