Kotinos Cold Extracted Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a high quality product, ideal for a healthy Mediterranean diet. It is the result of local environment – the soil, the variety and the people that love it. It is of the “Koroneiki” variety and it has a thick soft texture, unique fruity taste with a mildly pungent, peppery finish, a clean smell, low acids and rare nutrients. It is produced with the minimum time lag, between the olive harvest and olive oil production.
Kotinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains oleocanthal which has been found to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and can cause you to cough. This quality is called “pungency”, “peppery” or “astringency” in the olive oil trade. The other major compound Oleacein gives the slightly bitter taste on the tongue. The Ancient Greek doctors identified this peppery and bitter affect in the healthiest early harvest olive oils.
