In return, it rewards with a splendid olive oil containing flavours from the freshly-cut and pressed olives, of an emerald gold green colour, of a rich texture and unique taste that transcends time, intact from ancient Greece until today.

The European Food Safety Authority has approved the health claim (Commission Regulation (EU) 432/2012) that Olive oil polyphenols contribute to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress.The claim may be used only for olive oils, containing at least 250 mg of hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol or their derivatives per 1 Kg of olive oil and the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 20 gr of olive oil.The levels of oleocanthal and oleacein are higher than the average values (135 and 105 mg/Kg respectively) of the sample included in the international study performed at the University of California, Davis.It should be noted that oleocanthal and oleacein present important biological activity and they have been related with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardioprotective and neuroprotective activity.
