The Cretan Rusk history begins in the 16th century. Rusks were widely used instead of bread as they could be preserved for a longer period of time and they were given to farmers, sailors and shepherds. So the tradition continues until today where the rusks are consumed on a daily basis and they are considered by Cretans an essential ingredient for their nutrition.
These small rusks are based on extra virgin olive oil and its antioxidant properties according to Cretan-Mediterranean dietary standards. They were created by carrying on the tradition of combining whole grain wheat and barley, grinded in traditional mills to maintain their dietary fiber, which serves as a protective shield to the human body.
