Product Details

About Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO):

Olive oil is obtained from the olive, a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin. The oil is produced by grinding whole olives and extracting the oil by mechanical means. It is commonly used in cooking, cosmetics, herbal preparations, pharmaceuticals and soaps and also as a fuel for traditional oil lamps. Olive oil is used throughout the Mediterranean region and has gained popularity all around the world.

Types of Oils:

The grades of oil extracted from the olive fruit can be classified as:

 Virgin Oil: Virgin means the oil is produced by the use of physical means and no chemical treatment. The term virgin oil referring to production is different from the Virgin Oil on a retail label.

 Refined Oil: Refined means that the oil has been chemically treated to neutralize strong tastes and neutralize the acid content (free fatty acids). Refined oil is commonly regarded as lower in quality as compared to virgin oil. Oils with the retail labels extra-virgin olive oil and virgin olive oil cannot contain any refined oil.

 Olive Pomace Oil: Olive pomace oil means oil extracted from the pomace (residue of olives) using solvents, mostly hexane, and by heat.

How to Know Your Olive Oil?

There are a number of factors which can help determine the quality of olive oil. The lower the acidity the better is the olive oil. This is because a lower level of acidity means there are less of the unwanted free fatty acids.

Olive Oil production: The traditional olive oil production method involves grinding the olives using a granite wheel, with the resulting pulp being pressed through mats to achieve the oil. In most modern production the traditional wheel has been replaced with a grinder or gramolater which uses centrifugal force and is both efficient and clean. Less common systems include the use of needles which extract the oil while pulping the olives. Cold pressed olive oil means that the temperature during oil extraction did not exceed 27 degrees Celsius.

Some facts about Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil: Greece is the third largest producer of olive oil in the world. The majority of olive oil produced in Greece is extra virgin olive oil. The Greeks actually consume more olive oil per person than any other country in the world (Italy comes in 2nd with only half the consumption of Greece). The Greeks have used olive oil in many ways for thousands of years. The olive tree, olive and olive oil have historical and cultural significances for the Greeks, they use olive oil for eating, in soap, as fuel for lamps, to christen their children and in many other ways.

Quantitative analysis: Quantitative analysis can determine the oil's acidity, defined as the per cent, measured by weight of free oleic acid it contains. This is a measure of the oil's chemical degradation. As the oil degrades, more fatty acids are freed from the glycerides, increasing the level of free acidity and thereby increasing acidity. Another measure of the oil's chemical degradation is the organic peroxide level, which measures the degree to which the oil is oxidized, another cause of acidity. The grades of oil extracted from the olive fruit can be classified as:

 Extra-virgin olive oil comes from virgin oil production only, contains no more than 0.8% acidity, and is judged to have a superior taste. Extra Virgin olive oil accounts for less than 10% of oil in many producing countries; the percentage is far higher in the Mediterranean countries (Greece: 80%).

 Virgin olive oil comes from virgin oil production only, has acidity less than 1.5%, and is judged to have a good taste.

 Refined olive oil is the olive oil obtained from virgin olive oils by refining methods that do not lead to alterations in the initial glyceridic structure. It has a free acidity, expressed as oleic acid, of not more than 0.3 grams per 100 grams (0.3%) and its other characteristics correspond to those fixed for this category in this standard. This is obtained by refining virgin olive oils with a high acidity level and/or organoleptic defects that are eliminated after refining. Note that no solvents have been used to extract the oil, but it has been refined with the use of charcoal and other chemical and physical filters.

 Pure Olive Oil is labelled as pure olive oil or Olive oil are usually a blend of refined and virgin production oil.

 Olive oil is a blend of virgin and refined production oil, of no more than 2% acidity. It commonly lacks a strong flavour.

 Olive pomace oil is refined pomace olive oil often blended with some virgin oil. It is fit for consumption, but may not be described simply as olive oil. It has a more neutral flavour than pure or virgin olive oil, making it unfashionable among connoisseurs; however, it has the same fat composition as regular olive oil, rendering it the same health benefits. It also has a high smoke point, and thus is widely used in restaurants as well as home cooking in some countries.

 Lampante oil is olive oil not suitable as food; lampante comes from olive oil's long-standing use in oil-burning lamps. Lampante oil is mostly used in the industrial market.

Health Benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil:

 Inner Body Care – Antioxidants:

Olive oil contains a wide variety of valuable antioxidants that are not found in other oils. Hydroxytyrosol is thought to be the main antioxidant compound in olives, and plays a significant role in the many health benefits attributed to olive oil.

Olive Oil has a protective effect against certain malignant tumours Epidemiological studies suggest that olive oil has a protective effect against certain malignant tumours in the breast, prostate, endometrium, colon cancer and digestive tract. Research has revealed that the type rather than the quantity of fat seems to have more implications for cancer incidence.

 Olive Oil Reduces the Risk of Coronary Heart Disease: Evidence from epidemiological studies also suggests that a higher proportion of monounsaturated fats in the diet is linked with a reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease. This is significant because olive oil is considerably rich in monounsaturated fats, most notably oleic acid. As they are the least processed forms of olive oil, extra virgin or virgin olive oil have more monounsaturated fatty acids than any other olive oil. These types also contain more polyphenols, which may have benefits for the heart.

 Olive Oil Helps To Reduce Blood Pressure: A study was done in 2002 that showed that Virgin Olive Oil might help with lowering cholesterol. The results after one week of taking olive oil daily, the blood tests showed that the participants had higher levels of phenol and Vitamin E in their bodies. The study shows you how powerful olive oil can be and how it can help control healthy cholesterol levels.

 Anti-Inflammatory, Antithrombotic, Antihypertensive as well as Vasodilatory Effects of Olive Oil: There is a large body of clinical data to show that consumption of olive oil can provide heart health benefits such as favourable effects on cholesterol regulation and LDL cholesterol oxidation, and that it exerts anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic, antihypertensive as well as vasodilatory effects both in animals and in humans. Additionally, olive oil protects against heart disease as it controls the "bad" levels of LDL cholesterol and raises levels of the "good" cholesterol, HDL.

 Olive Oil and Pregnancy, Childhood: Olive Oil plays a key role in foetal development during pregnancy and a shortage may have pernicious effects on the baby's subsequent development. It has been demonstrated that the post-natal development of babies of mothers who consumed Olive Oil when pregnant is better in terms of height, weight, behaviour and psychomotor reflexes. The foetus needs vitamin E to grow. The new-born baby also needs a store of vitamin E to fight against the oxidative stress caused on entering an oxygen atmosphere. Vitamin E is also recommended for premature and new-born infants with kidney or pancreas failure because of the favourable effect it has on the hepato-biliary system. Although not very abundant in olive oil, it is present in sufficient quantity thanks to the resistance of Olive Oil to oxidation. But Olive Oil not only provides enough essential fatty acids for the development of the new-born child; its ratio of linoleic acid to linolenic acid (essential fatty acids) is similar to that of breast milk. The beneficial effect of oleic acid lasts beyond pregnancy. Besides its documented effectiveness in preventing hypercholesterolemia and atherosclerosis, which is a process that can begin in childhood, oleic acid also appears to exert a positive influence on growth and bone mineralization and development during infancy.

 Olive Oil and osteoporosis: Olive Oil appears to have a favourable effect on bone calcification, and bone mineralization better the more olive oil is consumed. It helps calcium absorption, thereby playing an important part during the period of growth and in the prevention of osteoporosis.

 Dissolves Kidney Stones: Drinking water helps flush your kidneys of kidney stones but olive oil helps ease the pain associated with passing the stones. The use of olive oil for kidney stones is a folk remedy that doesn't require a special detox, cleansing or fasting regime. Gayle Alleman, author of "The Healing Power of Garlic, Vinegar, & Olive Oil" says that olive oil helps coat the kidney stones traveling down the urethra, making it easier to pass them when urinating.

 Olive Oil has shown beneficial effects on ulcers and gastritis: Using olive oil as main dressing oil helps prevent constipation and in general maintain the digestive tract in good health.

 Olive Oil helps Against Constipation: Olive oil is unlikely to cause allergic reactions, and as such is used in preparations for lipophilic drug ingredients. It does have demulcent properties, and mild laxative properties, acting as a stool softener.

 Olive Oil against Diabetes: An olive-oil-rich diet is not only a good alternative in the treatment of diabetes; it may also help to prevent or delay the onset of the disease. It does so by preventing insulin resistance and its possible pernicious implications by raising HDL-cholesterol, lowering triglycerides, and ensuring better blood sugar level control and lower blood pressure. These benefits have been documented both in child and adult diabetes.

 Helps against Borborygmus: Olive oil is also a potent blocker of intestinal contractions, and can be used to treat excessive Borborygmus. Incomplete digestion of food can lead to excess gas in the intestine. Borborygmus is a rumbling or gurgling noise that occurs from the movements of fluid and gas in the intestines.

The principal aspects of this diet include proportionally high consumption of Olive Oil, legumes, unrefined cereals, fruits, and vegetables, moderate to high consumption of fish, moderate consumption of dairy products (mostly as cheese and yogurt), moderate wine consumption, and low consumption of meat and meat products.

 Health Effects: The Mediterranean diet often is cited as beneficial for being low in saturated fat and high in monounsaturated fat and dietary fiber. One of the main explanations is thought to be the health effects of olive oil included in the Mediterranean diet. The Mediterranean diet is high in salt content. Foods such as olives, extra virgin Olive Oil, salt-cured cheeses, anchovies, capers, and salted fish roe all contain high levels of salt. The inclusion of red wine is considered a factor contributing to health as it contains flavonoids with powerful antioxidant properties.
