Do you know the benefits of olive oil?
The Mediterranean diet is considered one of the healthiest and most balanced diets in the world. Olive oil is a fundamental part of this well-known cuisine. And numerous scientific studies have shown that it has beneficial properties for health, and even helps to prevent disease.
You probably know that olive oil belongs to the group of healthy fats, and that it also has antibacterial properties, improves intestinal health and helps the immune system. And because it speeds up metabolism, it can help you lose weight. But it doesn’t end there! Numerous studies also certify that the oil can help prevent diseases such as cancer, Alzheimer’s and diabetes.
Nutrition experts say it is healthiest to use two tablespoons per main meal. In addition, they advise that the oil should be taken raw so that the heat does not alter its properties.
Furthermore, you should know that it has been proven that the most favourable for our organism is extra virgin Olive Oil, which is obtained from the first pressing of the olive, and has hardly been refined, so it does not modify its properties.
At Molino del Arco we make our own Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Now that you know the benefits of olive oil, we would like to tell you that in Molino del Arco we produce our own extra virgin olive oil, thanks to the cultivation of our property. We pick the olives ourselves early, controlling the temperature, and with a slow pressing and filtering process, which gives it exquisite flavour and body.
