Olive Oil From Spain, The Finest Olive Oil You Can Buy

Unlike other oils, olive oil comes in a variety of flavors to enhance any dish. Replacing other oils and fats in your kitchen with olive oil is a great step to ensure your family is eating healthier. Olive oil provides polyphenols and Vitamin E, both antioxidants. Olive oil also contains Vitamin K which plays an important role in blood clotting. Some studies indicate that Vitamin K helps in maintaining strong bones in the elderly.*

Every Italica Olive Oil product is known for:

  • Distinctive Flavor - established by the painstaking cultivation of carefully selected stock and blended with olives from the rich harvest of the ranches surrounding Seville and the ancient Roman city of Italica.
  • Health Benefits - phenolic compounds in olive oil, which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting properties, may explain cardiovascular health benefits associated with the so-called Mediterranean Diet, according to a study in the Nov. 15, 2005 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
  • Convenience - achieved by packing olive oil in unbreakable, lightweight PET plastic bottles instead of glass.

Olive Oil Has Become A Global Business

Some of the major producers of olive oil purchase large amounts of olive oil from Mediterranean countries such as Italy, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Morocco and Tunisia. The oil is then transported in tankers to the packing location, where it is processed, refined and packed for export, so that the points of origin are often misleading. Purchasing raw materials from a variety of countries often results in non-uniform quality.

In contrast, Italica Olive Oil is produced and packaged at its point of origin, the hills surrounding the ancient Roman city of Italica in southern Spain. This results in a consistent high quality olive oil that is always sweet, fruity and so delicious you can drink it.
