Euzoea Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is produced in Crete following organic farming standards. It is extracted from selected 100 per cent monο-varietal koroneiki, hand-picked, sustainably grown and organic olives. It is considered to be the finest of all varieties. The welcoming and hospitable Cretan land nourishes the olive groves and they flourish in full abundance. This is the ideal terrain for the koroneiki to thrive, granting its olive oil with rare qualities.
The olive oil produced has a strong and fruity taste, perfectly suited to be consumed raw on salads. It is filled with valuable antioxidants, enhancing wellness and granting its nutritional value in everything it is added. Its aroma is complex, hinting slight herbal fragrances, allowing an aftertaste rather fruity and peppery. These are better noticed when the olive oil is added at the end of cooking or drizzled over cooked foods.
Euzoea Organic E.V.O.O. is extracted with the method of first cold extraction, at low temperatures, under controlled hygienic conditions where all necessary measures are applied, ensuring the safety and suitability of the product at all stages. It should be stored away from heat and light, preferably in a dark-coloured container.
The glowing, golden-green colour is obtained by cold extraction, preserving its natural taste and without undergoing any chemical treatments. It has a very low acidity level, lower than 0.8 per cent per 100 grams and it is highly nutritious, tasty and aromatic.
