Our Asilik II edition is made from the exquisite Memecik olives, and this edition offers hints of artichoke, eucalyptus, thyme, and tomato that will complement your dishes. The process behind creating this EVOO is very meticulous. The olives are hand-picked in late October and within a few hours the olives are cold pressed and sealed in stainless steel casks under a nitrogen layer to minimize oxidation. This process is important to producing an olive oil that retains the highest level of healthy substances such as polyphenols, monounsaturated fats and anti-inflammatory properties of oleic acid. The average polyphenol content in the U.S grocery market is 55 mg/kg whereas this edition stands out at an astonishing 609 mg/kg content! Therefore, it is very healthy for the body. Also, due to that high polyphenol content it has a high smoke point of 480 degrees Fahrenheit!
Using this delicious EVOO fresh from the bottle, in a salad dressing, dipping sauce or finishing oil, is the best way to experience its full health benefits and it's still perfect for pan sauces, marinades and grilling. Give your immune system a boost by taking 2 table spoons each morning!
