The health benefits of olive oil are unrivaled, and research reveals more benefits nearly every day. In fact, we are only just beginning to understand the countless ways olive oil can improve our health, and our lives. Olive oil is the cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet — an essential nutritional mainstay for the world’s longest-living cultures.
The Mediterranean diet has long been promoted as one of the healthiest on earth. A diet rich in olive oil, fresh vegetables, whole grains and fish has been linked to everything from lower obesity levels, a lower incidence of cancer and fewer deaths from cardiovascular disease, to lower rates of Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.
Tavananna Olive Oil has specially trained harvesting teams equipped with modern harvesting machines in order to transport fresh olives to the factory within 24 hours to obtain high quality olive oil. Production line operates under 26 C degree. Periodic quality testing and olive pomace drainage was performed to the olive oil stored under constant temperature, light and humidity.
Continuous system is the most up-to-date method in olive oil production.
“People from the Mediterranean, where olive oil is grown and consumed the most, have the lowest mortality rates in the world when it comes to cardiovascular diseases.”
