The olives for our Extra Virgin Olive Oil are Barnea Olives, which produce a fruity oil with a fresh buttery taste and peppery finish.

A staple of the Mediterranean diet for thousands of years, olive oil is thought by many to be the reason people in the region have astonishing low rates of heart disease, arthritis, and a higher life expectancy than the rest of Europe.

The high levels of polyphenolic compounds give the oil its excellent health attributes.

Cold-pressed in Australia, our Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a premium all-purpose extra virgin oil for salads, vegetables and Mediterranean dishes.

About this Product

The health benefits of olive oil

Olive Oil’s health benefits have long been known, but now science has caught up and proven conclusively that olive oil, and especially extra-virgin olive oil, is good for you in many different ways.

High in monounsaturated fats, it helps reduce the bad type of cholesterol, resulting in a lower risk of heart disease and stroke. Olives are some of the best foods for antioxidants, such as vitamin E, carotenoids, and phenolic compounds, which can reduce cancer risk, slow the ageing process, and lessen the risk of vision loss due to cataracts and macular degeneration.

Olive oil is also considered a brain food, improving memory, mood and attention, as well as having remarkable anti-inflammatory properties, which have been found to help ease those aches and pains in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, by mimicking the effect of anti-inflammatory drugs.

The Goodness

Olivado’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil is cold-pressed, meaning the temperature never gets above 45 degrees during processing. This allows the oil to retain its goodness, keeping all those antioxidants, polyphenols, and organic compounds inside the bottle where they belong.

A healthy combination of low saturated fat, high monounsaturated fat, and polyphenolic compounds gives extra virgin olive oil its unique health attributes.

Add a touch of the Mediterranean to your cooking with our delicious Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
