Nutrition Info

Olive oil

Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated oleic acid. Oleic acid can help to reduce LDL cholesterol, which is the type of cholesterol you should aim to have less of, as opposed to HDL cholesterol which is the ‘good guy’!

As a fundamental part of the Mediterranean diet, the health benefits of olive oil are bountiful. It’s high in polyphenols, for which there is significant epidemiological evidence showing positive health effects. In plants polyphenols protect against stresses such as UV light, pest attacks and effects of the weather; they also provide colour to attract insects. The thinking is that they do the same for us when we consume them, though hopefully not attracting insects!

Note: extra-virgin olive oil retains more of the beneficial compounds. For this reason, it’s considered healthier than the more refined varieties of olive oil.
