Olive Oil

Olive oil has been used for thousands of years now as a basic ingredient of the Mediterranean diet, for cosmetics, as well as combustible material in oil lamps and vigil
lights. The great importance of olive oil had been recognized since antiquity.
Homer himself had characterised it “liquid gold”, whereas some of the greatest physicians of antiquity, for instance Hippocrates, Galinos and Dioskorides had
referred to the beneficial properties of olive oil for health. Scientific studies have confirmed the positive
effect of olive oil on health. More particularly, the residents of Crete, who would traditionally consume greater quantities of olive oil, were healthier compared to the populations from other countries that participated in the study. In most areas of Crete, the olive oil produced is EXTRA VIRGIN, with acidity
levels ranging from 0.1 to 0.8, mild scent, taste of raw fruit and ingredients and vitamins that are important for our health.
