THE MEDITERRANEAN AND GREEK NUTRITION


The Mediterranean Nutrition, one of the most widespread diets in the world, is based on the consumption of olive oil as the main source of fats. During the last 50 years some researches which have been done in some areas of the Mediterranean, including Crete and south Italy have shown that the Mediterranean model of nutrition is responsible for the longevity of the inhabitants and the absence of diseases such as cardiovascular and that of the digestive system. The Mediterranean Diet rich in vegetable fibers is based on the consumption of vegetable foods, which are healthy for the organism. Vegetables, pasta, rice, legumes and fruit are its main components, while the foods of animal origin are consumed in small quantities. The olive oil, especially the raw olive oil, is used in salads, and is added at the end of cooking. Also, in this model of nutrition the consumption of small quantities of wine during the meals is used. Variety of plenty fresh fruits and vegetables, consumed many times a week. Olive oil it consists the main source of fats

Legumes, plenty of bread, pasta and other starchy foods, such as rice, potatoes and other cereals in variety but in moderation in daily consumption, but at least twice a week. Fish, rich in fats, poultry and lean meat at least twice a week When alcohol is consumed, it should be wine accompanying the meal When alcohol is consumed, it should be wine accompanying the meal

OLIVE OIL AND HEALTH


Olive oil is very healthy oil. A correct and balanced nutrition necessarily contains olive oil on a daily basis. The essence and taste, which gives to all foods, is unique. Just like all oils, olive oil as well, must be used in moderation. The oils contain fatty acids, which can be separated in three kinds: saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. The animal fats contain mostly saturated fat acids, the seed oils polyunsaturated, while the olive oil contains mostly monounsaturated fat acids up to 83%. The oleic acid, the main component of olive oil, comprises such a monounsaturated fat acid.

THE MAIN SOURCE


As the main source of monounsaturated fat acids, the olive oil helps:
The lower of "bad" cholesterol (LDL) in blood. The maintenance in the blood of "good" cholesterol (HDL). The good function of the intestine. The prevention of cardiovascular diseases and the protection of the organism from the coronary disease due to the strong antioxidants it contains. The cure of gastric and duodenum ulcer, as it eases the digestion. The decline of the gastric juices. The best immersion of calcium by the organism.

The correct metabolism of diabetics and consequently the balance of the diabetes rates. The prevention from cancer. While last but not least it revitalizes the skin.

HEALTHY AND TASTY


The olive oil is very healthy; it can be used in all foods and is recommended as very digestible oil. It does not fatten more than the other oils because it has exactly the same number of calories (9cal/gram). If it is added at the end of cooking it maintains all its qualities indelible, while when it is used raw, it reveals its relish. It adds a different taste in salads and vegetables and it helps in the preparation of sauces of vinaigrette type. It is also ideal for frying, as it resists high temperatures without having decays in its commendation. Last but not least, the olive oil is used as a food preserver as well. (E.g. cheese, vegetables, fish).

What is Olive Oil


Olive oil is the natural juice that is produced from the olive tree fruit by physical means (crushing, pressure, centrifugation, sinolea), without the addition of chemical refinements or further processes. That is why it can be immediately consumed, like all natural juices. Before choosing an olive oil, you must read carefully on the label for the following items: Type of oil (extra virgin, fine virgin, etc.) Acidity degree (note if the oil was produced by the cold-press method or if the cultivation is organic) The allowed containers in litres are: 0,10/ 0,25/ 0,50/ 0,75/ 1/ 2/ 3/ 5 and 10. Country of origin

Local origin Name and address of the standardizer, bottling unit, producer, seller, importer, or exporter Bottling date and expiry date (should not exceed 15 to 18 months) Preservation conditions (temperature)

Olive oil and the Mediterranean cooking


The cornerstone of Mediterranean cooking is olive oil. It is also consumed in daily diets, cooked or uncooked using various techniques. Good uncooked olive oil allows the flavours and aromas of the rest of the ingredients in the dish to shine. Many claim that it takes more skill to cook a dish made with oil than any other highclass gastronomic and complex preparation.

Uncooked
Extra virgin olive oil has strong organoleptic features, making it is ideal for salads or with vinegar or lemon. Use it with: Fresh boiled vegetables, wild greens, boiled or roasted potatoes, peppers, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli, notchweeds, black nightshades, black mustard, and chicories. Complex salads made with potatoes, bread, aubergines, garlic, parsley and fish roe Raw or grilled cheese with oregano, savoury, or thyme Boiled meat or poultry. Rusks, especially barley ones, or on toasted bread Marinades for fish and meat Aromatic herbs and greens In the oven Olive oil has the ability to keep meat, fish, and vegetables tender in the oven.

Olive oil mixes well with butter or margarine, especially in foods and desserts that are oven-baked. For desserts, oil keeps cakes moist and gives biscuits and cookies a crisp texture. Olive oil can be used as a non-stick substance in baking pans.

Barbecues and grill


Put the meat, poultry, fish, and vegetables in marinades with aromatic greens, spices, and olive oil. You can also baste the food with oil before barbecuing or grilling. The taste will improve, the food wont stick to the grid or turn black, and it will achieve a nice brown colour.

Casserole
Traditional Mediterranean cooking has dozens of casserole dishes. The main ingredients are olive oil, vegetables, wild greens, legumes, meat, potatoes, or pasta. Casserole dishes cooked with olive oil demand great attention, due to the relationship between olive oil and water. Its good to stew them at a low temperature and with the casserole lid open, so that the water evaporates to leave the dish with only the oil.

Frying
Fats oxidize as a result of high temperatures. Olive oil, thanks to its natural abundance of monounsaturated fatty acids, can resist very high and prolonged temperatures before undergoing changes. Varela (1980) studied the kinetics of the olive oil in fried food compared to other fatty substances like seed oils. Potatoes, fish, and bananas were fried in virgin olive oil, refined olive oil, soy oil, a mixture of soy and olive oil, arachnid oil, cottonseed oil, margarine, butter, and lard. Foods fried in olive oil formed a thin crust that increased fat content, while all other fatty substances produced a thick crust with less fat. Olive oil created a thinner, crisper crust for a longer time. These results show that olive oil does not penetrate food but remains on the surface, while all other fatty substances fully penetrate it. Moreover, the oleic acid does not change after frying. Therefore,

contrary to popular belief, olive oil is good for frying, if used correctly. Flouring food before frying creates a protective crust that retains moisture and nutrients. Olive oil contains a certain amount of moisture that is released gradually, if the oil remains between 100 and 150C. Fried olive oil remains easy to digest, even after successive uses, although many experts claim that you should not use oil more than 5 or 6 times for frying. However, many studies found that olive oil was absorbed by the stomach and the intestines even when used repeatedly for frying. Giving 40ml of uncooked or preheated virgin olive oil to volunteers, through the duodenum, researchers discovered there are no differences between uncooked and preheated olive oil regarding their bile properties. Corn oils overheat at 160C; sunflower oils, at 170C, creating toxic byproducts called total polar materials (TPM). Unfortunately, TPM may appear in unheated oils due to poor preservation conditions. Olive oil overheats at 200 to 210C. During frying, the creation of peroxides and free radicals, which have a negative influence on the central nervous system function, is noticeably restrained. Thus, we can conclude that olive oil is the most appropriate fatty substance for frying, since it has the greatest resistance to changes caused by oxidization. We could also claim that the gastronomy of Greece revolves around a huge frying-pan, since frying is one of the oldest methods of cooking in the Mediterranean.

Hellenic Natural Products with its great experience and knowledge of the cultivation of the Olive crop, production and trading of Olive oil in the form of bulk, has now passed over in the field of standardisation. It has focused all its interests and knowledge on an exquisite extra Virgin Olive-oil.

To achieve this, it applies scholastically and completely to a quality control system of highest standards that starts from the harvesting of the Olive crop and ends up in the bottling of the final product.

Hellenic Natural Products, in order to obtain the best oil, strive to harvest the olives just as they change colour, indicating that almost all the Oil has formed and that they are at peak flavour. Once collected, olives are rushed to the mill for same day or, at most, next day pressing. Olives not pressed immediately begin to oxidise and ferment. More than five kilos of olives are required to produce one litre of oil. Today, olives are crushed by mechanical stainless steel grindstones. The oil is separated from the paste by means of centrifugation, which simply means spinning the paste round at high speed. This method produces olive oil known as cold pressed olive oil. No heat or chemicals have been applied. It is the cold press method that enables olive oil to maintain its flavour, colour and nutritional value. A gentle filtration process is used to remove sediment and produce extra Virgin olive oil with an acidity level of only 0,3 - 0,7!
