Greek flavoured olive oil. Aromatic oliveoil.
Aromatic olive oil has been produced in Greece since time immemorial. It is mainly used for its medicinal, astringent and antioxidant properties, provided by the herbs and spices added to it. Scientific research has proven that many herbs contain antioxidant substances that prevent olive oil from being oxidized and improve its flavor. In contrast, substances negatively affecting olive oil include garlic, onion, peppers and the peels of acidic citrus fruit. Aromatic olive oil is produced from high quality oil with subtle aromatic tones and a non-distinctive flavor, with the addition of spices, aromatic herbs or even fruit and vegetables.
