Nemeon olive oil

On : 18. Jun 2024 / In : All

Olive oil from the Koroneiki olive from Greece is Gabriella's latest favorite product. The producers of the oil can look back on 25 years of experience. They mow infrequently to provide a habitat for insects and other creatures, and they do not use artificial irrigation or pesticides. The reward for these efforts is a natural and delicious product that is highly appreciated by customers.

However, the special features of this olive oil lie not only in the cultivation, but also in the cold processing of the olives. In addition, the oil is not filtered and a special process ensures that the olive stones remain intact during production. The result is a reduction in bitter substances.

Olive oil is a key ingredient in a healthy diet, particularly in Mediterranean cuisine. It contains polyunsaturated fatty acids, omega-3 fatty acids, oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPC) and vitamins. The antioxidant compounds and anti-inflammatory properties of olive oil are the most important benefits for the body. The heart is protected and even the brain benefits from olive oil. Recently, a Harvard study revealed the link between the intake of more than 7 g of olive oil and the risk of dying from dementia. The result speaks for a positive influence of olive oil. However, the study is not far-reaching enough in that it does not take into account other risk factors for dementia, such as alcohol and nicotine. Regardless of this, the study generally assumed a healthy lifestyle. Accordingly, the intake of a tablespoon of olive oil alone does not constitute a healthy lifestyle. Nevertheless, the study shows once again that a Mediterranean diet and olive oil as an important part of it are beneficial.

Apart from the health aspects, olive oil is a delicious base for many tasty dishes. The Gabriellas team's palates fell in love with Nemeon Classico olive oil so much that we decided to become a distribution partner.
