Olive oil, a key ingredient in the Mediterranean diet, is considered a key ingredient in fighting heart disease, and demand for some types of oil is starting to rival that of a fine bottle of wine. Besides being high in healthy monounsaturated fats, olive oil is one of those good fats that may even protect the brain.
Kalamata, a hidden gem on the southern coast of the Peloponnese peninsula, is known for some of the best food products along the Mediterranean, including its world-renowned olives and extra virgin olive oil. What distinguishes a Kalamata olive from all others is its distinctive juicy and thick texture, low acidity, peppery aftertaste and, above all else, its almond-shaped pointed pit that is reddish in color.
Made from 100% Kalamata olives, Aenaon Extra-Virgin Olive Oil has a complex, fruity, full flavor. It's an excellent olive oil to have on-hand for cooking, as a dressing on salads, garnishing and dipping. It will give all of your meals warmth and flavorful depth.
