The Mediterranean nutrition – one of the widest-spread diets in the world – is based on the consumption of olive oil as the main source of fat. Research, which has been conducted during the last 50 years in the Mediterranean area including Crete and South Italy, revealed that the Mediterranean model of nutrition is responsible for the long life-span of the inhabitants as well as for the absence of diseases of the coronary vessels and the digestive system.
The Mediterranean diet is rich in plant fibres and based on the consumption of vegetables, which are healthy for our organism. Vegetables, pasta, rice, pulses and fruit are the main ingredients of this diet, while food of animal origin is only consumed in small quantities.
Olive oil is used for salads, and for the preparation of meals, where it is added at the end of the cooking process. Finally it should be mentioned that with this model of nutrition red wine in small quantities goes with the meals.
Our company has received the certificate from the Organization for Safe Treatment of Food and complies with the regulations for bottling, standardization, storage and trade of olive oil.More
