We are always happy to announce that science has found some new application or benefit for olive oil. We also like it when these benefits are confirmed. A few weeks ago, on Alimente, the section of the digital Spanish newspaper El Confidencial, published an article entitled “Why it is so good to take a spoonful of extra olive oil on an empty stomach every day“. Signed by Patricia Matey, the text reviews the properties that science has discovered in recent years. But, in our opinion, two very interesting ideas appeared. The first is that we Europeans from Mediterranean countries have...

Recent surveys have calculated that each liter of olive oil produced removes 10 kg of CO2 from the atmosphere. That means...

The blog Aceites de España just reminded us that it was in 2010 when UNESCO proclaimed the Mediterranean Diet as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. This recognition has served to give greater international popularity to a diet of which we are a proud and integral part. The Diet refers not only to the food we eat, but also to how it is produced and how it is consumed. Eating with more people (with family or friends) and doing it in a balanced way and from healthy and unprocessed foods such as our Extra Virgin Oilive Oil are basic requirements. In...

Since the beginning of our project we have always reporting the numerous benefits of the olive oil. First, as a concept: the cultivation of olive trees leaves us closer to the traditional way of life, our Mediterranean culture, our origins, the slow life and the maintenance of a form of the agriculture that is increasingly threatened and it is more and more necessary to preserve.
