Guide to Buying
The Original Super Food
When we gather around the table with a dish of freshly pressed olive oil for dipping bread and vegetables, it becomes a catalyst for fresh conversation and wonderful meals. It also brings us better nutrition, helping us to absorb nutrients from other foods. Read this guide and you’ll discover three qualities to seek when you buy olive oil—one
simple step to a healthier diet.
It’s not easy to find the right olive oil. Why? Because you’re bombarded with misleading advertising, confusing claims and bad information. We created this guide to buying olive oil as an educational service to consumers, to help you better understand what you are buying. Considered the original super food, olive oil has a rich and colorful history. Edible olives were grown in ancient Crete in 3,500 BC, and Romans started cultivating olive groves to harvest olive oil in about 600 BC. Olives have been cultivated around the Mediterranean for thousands of years from Greek and Roman times.
Spain is by far the world’s largest producer of olive oil. We produce Veritat Oli d’Oliva in the Priorat region, just south of Barcelona, because it is the best place to produce it. Veritat Oli d’Oliva brings you premium quality, freshly pressed extra-virgin olive oil from a co-op of 40 farms in the mountains of Catalonia, in Priorat. Our extra-virgin olive oil is pressed, stored and bottled throughout the year at the 100-year-old village mill and shipped directly to the U.S, ensuring peak freshness in every bottle.
You may have heard media reports that made you wonder about the quality of the olive oil on your dinner table. If you want to be sure you are getting the purest, best quality olive oil, look for an olive oil with these three qualities:
When olive oil is at its ideal freshness, it brings it maximum flavor and health benefits:
Better heart health. The monounsaturated fatty acids
in olive oil may help lower your risk of heart disease by lowering low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels.1
Improved blood sugar control. Some research indicates olive oil promotes better insulin levels and blood sugar control.2
Anti-cancer effects. Research shows that olive oil reduces the risk of breast cancer and provides protection from colon cancer.
Olive oil is a GOOD fat; it is HEALTHY fat and won’t make you fat if consumed in moderation. Commit to
eating 2 tablespoons of olive oil a day as a substitute for other fats, such as canola or corn oil.
The longer you incorporate olive oil into your diet, the more you will enjoy the cumulative health benefits.
Put Veritat Oli d’Oliva at the heart of your dinner table today. The tastiness of Veritat Oli d’Oliva is complex, with grassy tones, mixed herbs, and luscious lettuce leaves and sorrel, ending with a pop of peppery goodness.
