500 GRADE™ olive oil offers 250-500 mg of polyphenols/kg, as compared with the 150-200 provided by other high-quality extra virgin olive oils.
In addition to being a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, the flavonoid polyphenol is also responsible for the “strong taste” and long shelf-life of authentic award winning olive oils.
Pitted olive oil is nothing new and appears to offer notable culinary and health benefits.
A process born in Roman times, pitting olives before pressing has been associated with lower acidity, reduced peroxide levels, and greater resistance to oxidation resulting in an increased shelf-life.
It also reduces the bitterness that derives from the kernel itself.
Choose longevity. Choose Nuraxi.
Raw extra virgin olive oil is the heart of the Sardinian diet and an acclaimed contributor to longevity.
80 percent of the Italian olive oils on the market are fake - meaning diluted with less beneficial oils.
This is unfortunate as pure, cold-pressed, raw, extra virgin olive oil is not only a culinary idol, it also offers renowned benefits, from powerful antioxidant and essential fatty acids, to antibacterial and health-promoting properties.
Nuraxi olive oil is made from hand-picked ancient olive trees on the uncontaminated isle of Sardinia.
Family-owned producers cold-press their olives within 4 hours of plucking them – a rare feat which serves to preserve the flavor and nutrients offered by this exceptional fruit.
