Olive oil from Kröpfel

Olive oil, a staple of Mediterranean cuisine, is made from the pulp of the olive. It has been valued for thousands of years both as a foodstuff and for cosmetic and medicinal purposes. There are different grades of olive oil, with “extra virgin olive oil” being the highest quality. This oil is obtained by cold pressing without the use of chemicals or excessive heat and has a characteristic taste and smell.

The health benefits of olive oil are far-reaching. It is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, especially oleic acid, and contains antioxidants such as vitamin E and polyphenols. These ingredients can help to reduce the risk of heart disease, lower cholesterol levels and reduce inflammation in the body.

The robustness and flavor of the olive oil can vary depending on the origin, olive variety and production method, resulting in a variety of flavor profiles – from mild and buttery to strong and peppery. For the best taste and the greatest health benefits, olive oil should be stored in a dark, cool place and consumed within a year of opening.

Whether in salads, when frying or simply pure on a piece of bread – olive oil is not only delicious, but also an enrichment for a balanced diet.

Advantages of olive oil

    1. Heart health: Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, especially oleic acid, which can help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and increase “good” HDL cholesterol. This can reduce the risk of heart disease.

    2. Antioxidant properties: Olive oil contains numerous antioxidants, including vitamin E and polyphenols. These antioxidants can neutralize free radicals in the body, which can cause cell damage and contribute to ageing.

    3. Anti-inflammatory: Some compounds in olive oil, such as oleocanthal, have anti-inflammatory properties comparable to those of ibuprofen. This can help reduce inflammation in the body and potentially lower the risk of chronic disease.

    4. Skin and hair health: Olive oil has moisturizing properties and can help to hydrate the skin and revitalize dry hair. It is often used in skin and hair care products.

    5. Digestive: Olive oil can support the health of the digestive system. It promotes bile production and can help to reduce the risk of gallstones. It can also promote the absorption of some important vitamins such as vitamins A, D, E and K.
