Biolea 500ml BIO Stone milled
Traditionally matte pressed BIOLEA olive oil 500ml BIO
Our specialty and pride - cold pressed olive oil, made of ground stone burrs olives of the Koroneiki variety. Perfectly balanced, with the highest-quality craftsmanship, olive oil worthy of the most exquisite dishes. It is characterized by a refined aroma combining the scent of green plants with a hint of hazelnuts and almonds, topped with a delicate sweetness of apples. Subtly spicy tones of pepper with a light, pleasant bitterness follow the unique aftertaste of garden sorrel. It is perfect for sprinkling young lettuce leaves, it fantastically enriches the taste of seafood and delicate pasta dishes. It is also very good as a health prophylaxis.
Astrikas Estate's olive groves are grown organically without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides have been certified organic for over 20 years.
Biolea has developed sustainable farming methods to help protect the environment. Although our olive trees produce less without irrigation, we preserve our island's precious water resources. We do not use non-biodegradable plastic PVC irrigation tubing. At the same time, we stopped plowing or heavy equipment in our fields to prevent the increasingly worrying problem of soil erosion in Crete.
Due to the very high content of phenols (including tirizole and hydroxytyrizol derivatives), it meets the assumptions of the European Commission (Regulation EU 432/2012), which talks about the pro-health benefits of consuming min. 20g of olive oil daily, which prevents oxidation of blood fats. The health label "Health Claim" can only be used by producers of oil that contains at least 5 mg of hydroxytyrosol and its derivatives of polyphenolic compounds (eg oleacein, oleocantal, oleoeuropein and others) in 20g.
