  OLIVE OIL Properties  

IIt is easy to digest, has a generally positive effect on the stomach and the intestines, protects against tumours and prevents the formation of gallstones.

The high proportion of unsaturated fatty acids, which at 75% not only surpasses that of animal fats but also the majority of vegetable oils, reduces the risk of heart and circulatory system diseases, making the blood vessels more elastic.

Due to its high content of antioxidants, olive oil can withstand high temperatures without breaking down into substances that can be dangerous to the health, as happens with animal fats and others of vegetable origin. It is considered that antioxidants also act in the human organism to prevent cancer.

Olive oil is sensitive to light, heat, contact with air and humidity. It should be kept in a tightly closed container in a dark place, preferably in a dark-coloured glass bottle.
