ATSAS olive oil:
The organic, early-harvest ATSAS olive oil is a superior quality product produced in Cyprus. This oil is carefully harvested by hand, cold-pressed, using solely mechanical means. According to the European Union regulations (EC Regulation 432/2012), oil with polyphenol content above 250 mg / l can be considered a nutraceutical product. The polyphenol content in ATSAS oil is extremely high – more than 2000 mg / l. Olive polyphenols are naturally occurring micronutrients. Their antioxidant abilities can play an important role in the prevention of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Olive polyphenols have shown to protect health from LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) by preventing blood lipids from oxidative stress. Oleocanthal and oleolacin phenols have important biological activities and are related to anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective benefits.
Due to the high concentration of polyphenols, it is recommended to use only a small amount of ATSAS oil – half a teaspoon daily is sufficient.
ATSAS oil is bottled in little black bottles made of opaque glass, to preserve as much of the oil’s valuable properties as possible. It is important to store the oil in a cool and dry place and keep the oil bottle properly closed as direct UV rays and contact with oxygen change the chemical composition of extra virgin olive oil and it may lose its nutritious properties.
