Olive oil represents an essential cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet. It includes exceptional health properties and it is also good for our skin and hair. Among the benefits of olive oil, it should be highlighted the cholesterol control thanks to the oleic acid which forms part of its composition. Moreover, its consumption is particularly recommended as it contains antioxidant elements that are useful in order to prevent ageing.

The Mediterranean diet lies in a balanced and wise combination of foods providing all the needed nutrients for a healthy life. Olive oil plays a leading role in order to reach this final goal.

Within Mediterranean diet, we can assure that olive oil represents a core element when cooking. It can be used in different ways: raw (salads, vegetables dressing, with bread or smoked foods), seasoning as well as for sautés and stews.
