Extra virgin olive oil forms the basis of the renowned Mediterranean diet, as it constitutes the main health-promoting component of it. The Mediterranean diet is cited as beneficial for being low in saturated fat and high in monounsaturated fat and dietary fiber. Those benefits are thought to derive mainly from the health effects of gold olive oil. “Gold Metamorphosis” is a company that aims to satisfy such high expectations. Its EVOO has an authentic and well balanced taste, special flavor, pungent, bitter, and intensely fruity. Smooth and delicate to taste, with a generous aroma, rich and aromatic, it leaves a strong, lasting aftertaste.
It is generally accepted that an elevated consumption of extra virgin gold olive oil is associated with lower all-cause mortality and the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease, neurodegeneration and several chronic diseases. When a product dates back to the Byzantine era and has received the status of a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) product, that must count for something.
