NEW ARRIVAL!!! Made in Greece Organic Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil (500ml) by Kosterina
Why We Love It
After looking into different types of cold pressed olives that go into Extra Virgin Olive Oils, I’ve read about many types of Olives. This Organic Everyday EVOO is the perfect everyday olive oil to use for cooking and dipping with a great price point, superior quality and a genius spout that doesn’t leak (and it’s not in a plastic squeeze bottle!! Have you ever heard of the Blue Zones or watched the documentary? It covers people around the world in the Blue Zone, that love the longest- over 100 years old! Greece is one of the places covered. This EVOO is from the Blue Zone! Not saying this EVOO make people live the longest; but it’s intriguing to see how the people there live and eat! Kosterina uses 100% Koroneki Olives and each bottle has a harvest date you can reference. The Extra Virgin olive oil flavor is mild and delicate with a small touch of bitter (but close to none, when compared to others). Also available in a 3L tin (can be stocked upon request) to refill the standard 500ml Blue Organic Everyday EVOO UV protected bottle!
What the founder says:
”During my time in Greece, the lifestyle I was experiencing reminded me of the Blue Zones -- 5 areas of the world that have a higher than average population of centenarians (people who live to be over 100). The island of Ikaria, Greece is one of them and its inhabitants' longevity is attributed to a plant-based diet, adequate sleep, strong personal relationships and yes, even EVOO.” You can read more about this topic on Kosterina’s blog : https://www.kosterina.com/blogs/news/the-blue-zones
About this product
Made in Greece.
While our Original Extra Virgin Olive Oil is absolutely your best choice for dipping and finishing, Kosterina Organic EVERYDAY EVOO is your new go-to for cooking, baking, roasting and grilling – anytime heat is applied! Crafted with cooks in mind, the Everyday has a mild, fruity flavor with a smooth finish that will not overpower your food. This oil stands up to heat beautifully and is able to maintain its flavor with a smoke point of over 400° F. Like our ultra-premium Original EVOO, the Everyday is made from 100% Koroneiki early harvest olives.
The Everyday has a polyphenol content of over 300 mg/kg as measured at the time of harvest – that’s slightly less than the 470 mg/kg found in our Original EVOO (and infused oils) but still over 6x what you can find in an average bottle at your local supermarket.
