Acidity: 0,5% max. The carefully selected and collected olives and the use of the “cold extraction” technique by traditional mechanical means, maintains and preserves the natural substances of the olive, ensuring the excellent quality of our olive oil.

    A key element of the Mediterranean diet, considered one of the most beneficial foods since it is associated with longevity and prevention of diseases. Use it: in salads and marinades you as raw olive oil brings its rich sensory characteristics. In stews, by adding it 10 minutes before the end of cooking to enjoy the intense flavor and rich aroma. In brushing grilled meats, fish or vegetables, thereby enhancing their flavor. But also in frying wherein extra virgin olive oil is the only oil that withstands high temperatures and remains hygienic. You can fry up to 3 times, by using the same amount. Produced from the prime variety ''Koroneiki'' & ''Psilolia'',  our Greek Cretan Extra Virgin Olive Oil is much appreciated for its soft, juicy and refreshing unique Olive and Lemon taste.

           2) Balsamic Vinegar : Whether it is for cooked meals, salads or grilled meats and vegetables,                       balsamic vinegar is a very important addition that enhances and highlights the flavors in your                       Greek cuisine without covering it, adding a variety of nutrients.

     Balsamic differs from average vinegar, as the juice of the Greek Cretan dried grapes is subjected to a different treatment, shows its complexed flavors and acquires a distinctive syrupy texture, almost like candy, becasue of the long residence in a number of old wooden oak barrels . That process  created its' unique sweet and sour flavor, characteristic of its Greek Mediterranean legacy. Even the title "Balsamic" has the meaning of balsam, something that is thick, sour and aromatic.

    Our Greek Cretan Balsamic Vinegar, is  a natural product without any additional sweeteners, preservatives or colors. It contains only a few carbohydrates and has 88 calories (kcal) per 100gr. It contains concentrations of iron, calcium, sodium, manganese and magnesium. It has strong antioxidant activity, which has been proved by studies, that  balsamic vinegar is 4 times more antioxidant than fruits and vegetables! As a result, it constitutes a unique combination of excellent gastronomic flavor and high nutritional value.

    On Greek Mediterranean diet we combine Balsamic Vinegar with Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which make them ideal ingredients in recipes with meat or fish, fruits, cheese, pasta, in marinades and salads with raw or cooked vegetables. It provides a rich sweet and sour flavor and a unique velvet aroma in all foods in which it is being used.
