Due to its multiple properties, Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a basic component of the Mediterranean diet and of several countries around the world:

  • High content in oleic fatty acids: approximately 82% of its composition. It helps to form a more stable cell membrane against oxidation, and to regulate gene expression1. Scientific studies support the correlation between its intake and the reduction of cardiovascular risks3,4.
  • Rich in polyphenols: indicative of high quality1. In addition to protecting the oil from auto-oxidation, they play an important antioxidant-protective role in the body4.
  • Antioxidant properties: significantly reduce the oxidative degradation of lipids1.
  • Excellent ratio of polyunsaturated fatty acids/tocopherols: helps to achieve a more correct dietary lipid profile in line with current nutritional objectives and recommendations2.

 

 

In addition, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, from Vitobest®, is of high quality because it is obtained directly from green olives of the Picual variety, harvested in the Serranía de Jaén during the first days of the harvest, and processed mechanically (without using any chemical product).

  • Early production: several studies show that as the olive matures, the quantity and composition of its phenolic compounds decrease4. That's why our oil is produced with early harvested olives.
  • Picual variety: it is the most important variety in the world and the distinctive seal of the province of Jaén. It has a medium-high pulp/stone ratio and a high fat yield (it can reach up to 27%). Its oil is very stable and has a characteristic fruity flavor, with a slight bitterness and a slightly spicy taste1.
