About Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil Greece
Olive oil is made from the crushing and then subsequent pressing of olives. The fact that olives are rich in oil is reflected in the botanical name of the olive tree - Olea europea - since the word oleum means oil in Latin. Extra virgin olive oil is derived from the first pressing of the olives and has the most delicate flavour and most antioxidant benefits. This extra-virgin olive oil is produced by a manner of cold extraction which means that the oil is not subject to a temperature of over 27 ° Celsius in the processing, thus helping to preserve the flavour and nutritional value of the product.
