ORGANIC WILD OLIVE OIL
The wild olive tree is a seedling tree stemming from the olive fruit. It is mainly found in uncultivated areas and it is easily recognizable by the diversity of its fruit and the shape of its leaves. Its harvesting is exceptionally difficult due to the small size and sparse appearance of the fruit on the tree.
The wild olive oil, except the low acidity, is richer in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty. It also contains a higher proportion of oil protein, oleocanthal and oleacein, polyphenols in the olive fruit that offer valuable antioxidant properties to the oil.
According to Regulation 432/2012 of the European Union, oil can invoke health claim concerning the protection of the cardiovascular system if it contains more than 5mg hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol or their derivatives to the usual daily dose of 20gr (or else over 250mg / kg). Our wild olive oil exceeds these numbers, making it a valuable food supplement, highly beneficial for our health.

The wild olive oil, as surveys in recent years have shown, can be classified in the Super Foods since the properties and benefits are valuable to the human body. In our farm the wild olive trees are scattered on its borders and in the uncultivated parts.
At older times the wild olive oil was not high on the reputation of the producers due to its spicy – bitter taste. Today we know that this very “spicy” flavour is the index for the multiple benefits to our body. These polyphenolic substances oleocanthal and oleacein which have antiinflammatory, antioxidant and cardioprotective properties are higher than in oil.
Their harvesting is very difficult and is made exclusively by hand while the extraction of the wild olive oil is made immediately after hatvesting at a local certified mill by the method of cold pressing. We offer this unique super food as produced by the Greek earth for many centuries in a particularly elegant packaging and always in limited quantities.
