The composition of extra virgin olive oil
High quality olive oil can be very healthy. The Mediterranean diet or Mediterranean cuisine is one of the healthiest diets in the world. Ingredients such as unsaturated fatty acids also have a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels.
The Mediterranean cuisine is largely based on the use of:
- fresh fruit and vegetables,
- Fish and seafood and
- Legumes and nuts
Olive oil is used almost exclusively as a source of fat for cold dishes such as salads or also for frying or roasting.
Mediterranean nutrition, in which olive oil is an important component, is characterized by the use of high-quality olive oils. With our Olive Oil Tasting Set “Our Best” you can easily find out which types of oil are best suited for your daily use.

If you would like to learn more about the subject, we recommend reading the book “Olive Oil Healthy Pleasure” (Vienna, Verlaghaus der Ärzte, ISBN 399052089X) by Prof. Dr. Robert Gasser, Albert Wohlfahrt and Manfred Bläuel. The aspects around the topic health and olive oil presented in the book are very interesting but not yet proven by the European Commission.
