Olive Oil

Olive Oil Benefits
In Greek, olive oil is pronounced "ELEON".
These are some of its distinguishing features:

  • The "Centerpiece of the Mediterranean Diet"
  • Rich in vitamin E
  • Rich in "good" monounsaturated fat
  • Lowers the risk of heart disease
  • Reduces LDL in blood
  • Helps to reduce the chances for breast cancer
  • Rich in "age defying" antioxidants

The most fundamental ingredient of the Mediterranean diet is the extra virgin olive oil. Our extra
virgin olive oil is naturally flavorful, with an intense aroma of the fresh cut green olive. I guess the
question is, are you using olive oil because you've heard that it reduces the 'bad' (LDL) cholesterol
and does no harm to the 'good' (HDL), or will you pour it onto your bean soup, salad or pasta as a
condiment? Whatever the case may be, olive oil is a matter of trust. That trust is not given, it has to
be earned. Our suppliers have earned our trust and we would welcome the challenge to earn yours.

Mediterranean Pita features extra virgin olive oil from three different locations:

  • Kalamata
  • Crete
  • Italy

Additionally, we have a limited supply of Olive Pomace Oil from Italy & Greece.

ELEON from Kalamata is packed for us by our most trusted supply associate. It is available in 3 lt tins or 750 & 500 ml bottles.

KNOSSOS from Crete is packed in 3 lt tins.

From Italy, our own "Legato" brand olive oil is available as Extra Virgin and Olive
Pomace Oil, both packed in 3lt tins.
