  • What are the health benefits of olive oil and polyphenols?
    Polyphenols present important biological activity and they have been related with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardioprotective and neuroprotective activity. The daily consumption of 20 gr of our extra virgin olive oil provides 10.2 mg of hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol or theirderivatives. Olive oils that contain >5 mg per 20 gr belong to the category of oils that protect the blood lipids from oxidative stress according to the Regulation 432/2012 of the European Union.
  • What does “Extra Virgin” and “Cold Pressed” mean for olive oil?
    Probably the most well-known term, Extra Virgin Olive Oil means that it was less than 24 hours between the olives being picked and them being pressed resulting in an oil of less than 0.8% acidity. To be Extra Virgin the oil must also have been extracted from the olives on its first pressing, without the use of heat or chemicals. When olive oil is labelled ‘Extra Virgin’ it should have been cold pressed, as this means the process of extracting the oil from the olives has been carried out without adding any heat. Cold pressed oil retains the nutritional value of the olives, along with preserving the olives subtle flavours and aromas. In any case though, the olives have to be delicious to begin with to create oil with the taste you deserve!
  • What does “Solely by mechanical means” mean on olive oil labels?
    Under regulations set up by the International Olive Council and the European Union, olive oil must only be obtained by mechanical or other physical means under conditions that do not lead to alterations in the oil. No heat or chemicals should be applied during the process in an attempt to increase the yield. Furthermore, the olives and oil must not undergo any treatment other than washing, decanting, centrifuging and filtering. ‘Superior category olive oil" is the highest grade of oil. It is the natural juice of the olive with only the water removed. It has zero defects in taste and aroma and very low acidity level. No additives or preservatives and the most health benefits due to its high levels of monounsaturated fatty acids, polyphenols, and antioxidants.
  • What does "Single Estate" mean ?
    When olives are grown, harvested, pressed and bottled by one farm or estate this makes the olive oil ‘single estate’ or ‘estate nurtured’. At Asopos Groves we have complete control over the quality of the olives used and the process used to press them.

  • Why you should always buy Olive Oil in dark glass bottles or tins?
    Only buy olive oil that is in a dark glass bottle or a tin. Olive Oil that is sold in a clear bottle is likely to be poor quality because olive oil deteriorates more quickly when it is exposed to light. All our Oils are packed in dark bottles and tins for that very reason!
