EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL
Extra virgin olive oil is one of the best gourmet products of Spain. Outstanding flavour and highly beneficial from a health point of view, it also forms the basis of Spanish cuisine. Every dish you create would benefit from a touch of extra virgin olive oil, and it would add a unique flavour to every salad.
Extracted from olives without any chemical intervention, extra virgin olive oil must have an acidic ph of up to 0.8%. It has a high content of vitamins A, D, E and K, and it helps in the absorption of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and zinc. It eases digestion and prevents heartburn and constipation. It is also beneficial for maintaining regular blood pressure and glucose levels. Olive oil is rich in polyphenols (a natural antioxidant), thus assisting in the prevention of diseases like Alzheimer and ageing. It also reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, because it increases the level of HDL, the good cholesterol.
