The beneficial properties of olive oil are many. It is a key element of the Mediterranean diet and is now considered, after extensive studies of the most basic healthy food products.
We recommend consuming it raw.
Olive oil has great stability in frying so it can be used many times without losing its beneficial ingredients.
In other cooking practices we suggest you not to put all the olive oil in the recipe from the beginning. Use a little at the beginning and add the rest to the serving to enjoy the taste and its beneficial properties.
