Kalamata Olive Oil (Robust intensity)

This limited production reserve olive oil is something special! Made from minimally-processed, cold-pressed early Greek Kalamata olives, this extra-virgin olive oil is incredibly high in biophenols (708 ppm), which are naturally-occuring compounds that are linked in hundreds of studies to many health benefits. Phenols have antioxidant properties, and can reduce inflammation — which minimizes the risk of heart disease and other illnesses.

One such phenol, Oleocanthal, is found in large amounts in this oil (445 ppm) in addition to its robust health benefits, this also brings a bold and pungent flavour to the oil. 

This oil begins with an immediate peppery sensation at the back of the throat, followed by lingering spice and pungency. Flavour notes include wheatgrass, malt, and ripe green apple.
