OliAMO Health Benefits

FROM OUR ITALIAN FAMILY FARMS TO YOU

Grown in the Re di Coppe (King of Cups) Region of Chieti, the Gentile di Chieti, Olivastro and Leccino olives used in OliAMO are grown organically by our farmers in Chieti and harvested by hand as they have for generations. We use only olives from this area from a few family farms that grow the olives consistent with our family, sustainability and ecological values and maintain strict control over the growing and harvesting of these special olives. Each and every Fall season, our family farmers harvest without machines as they have for generations. After harvest, they are rushed to the mill, cold pressed and within hours are turned into the finest unadulterated extra virgin olive oil you can find anywhere on earth.

Don’t buy low quality olive oil!

Whether you buy OliAMO or another quality brand, it’s important that you only buy the finest and freshest extra virgin olive oil in order to get the health benefits that only high quality extra virgin olive oil can offer.

The International olive oil council defines extra virgin olive oil as a virgin olive oil which has a free acidity, expressed as oleic acid, of not more than 0.80 grams per 100 grams and less than 20mg/kg of peroxides.

Fake olive oil can be made from a mix of olive oil diluted with poor quality oils, but sometimes there is no real olive oil at all.

Sometimes cheap, unhealthy soy or canola oils are colored with industrial chlorophyll and flavored artificially to simulate the taste and appearance of real olive oil.

In 2010, the University of California Davis Olive Center rocked consumer confidence when they reported that 69% of imported and 10% of California extra virgin olive oil failed to meet extra virgin olive oil standards
