PLACE OF ORIGIN

PRODUCTION

ELAIOPHYSIS olive oil is produced in the Municipality of Nestor area, in Messenia, the southwestern part of the Peloponnese, renowned since ancient times and famous for the Mycenaean palace and ancient kingdom of the mythical King Nestor of Homer’s Iliad. The olive groves thrive on the sun-soaked slopes, where for thousands of years they ripen their fruit in the breeze and scents of the Ionian Sea.

CONTROL

ELAIOPHYSIS is an extra virgin olive oil of high quality, of the Koroneiki variety, which combines all the beneficial properties of olive oils, with numerous monounsaturated fatty acids the proportion of which in relation to saturated fatty acids ensures the greatest possible absorption by the body of the unsaturated fatty acids. It also has low levels of acidity at <0.5 and is characterised by its high content in natural antioxidants such as vitamin E (α-Tocopherol) and phenolic compounds, which have been proven to protect blood lipids from oxidative stress.

HEALTH

CLAIMS

Many of the special organoleptic but also chemical characteristics of olive oil are influenced to a large degree by the microclimate of the area it comes from. Our olive groves are in a region which enjoys high sunlight duration, which contributes to the significant presence of aromatic elements, contributing in turn to the fine quality of ELAIOPHYSIS. Another factor influencing olive oil’s organoleptic constituents is the soil composition. It is significant that ELAIOPHYSIS olive oil is produced on the lands of the ancient kingdom of Nestor; the site has been chosen since ancient times for the production of olive oil.
