Olive oil has been around for thousands of years, but many may not know how popular it has been over the years. The use of olive oil dates all the way back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. Although many may not perceive it as such, olive oil is a fruit juice: it is simply created by pressing olives and extracting the juice that comes from them. It is an essential part of the Mediterranean diet and is used in the preparation of most Mediterranean meals. It is also commonly used in many Italian dishes.

But why should we use European olive oil? Olive oil is an essential part of many European diets, and has been proven to provide health benefits for many. It is rich in antioxidants, promotes better digestion, and aids in the absorption of other nutrients. It also contains fat-soluble vitamins that are concentrated in the mammary gland and can be passed on to newborns through lactation. Olive oil can also promote healthy living if consumed daily and is recommended in low calorie diets.  Olive oil is also rich in monounsaturated fat, a heart-health promoting fatty acid that is difficult to include in many diets.

Flavor Your Life campaign supported by the European Union, Unaprol and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, is dedicated to providing the latest in industry news and health information about European extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil enhances the flavors of your recipes while providing health benefits. Flavor Your Life campaign, the voice of olive oil production quality control, aims to educate consumers so they can make informed decisions when purchasing olive oil.
