The ancient Italians knew a thing or two about food when they choose the ingredients for pesto & tapenade…….
Basil is an excellent source of Vitamins K, A & C plus manganese and iron and is a powerful antioxidant. It’s full of polyphenolic flavonoids which shield the body’s structures from cell damaging free radicals.
Black Olives with their antioxidant nutrients, impede this oxidation of cholesterol thereby helping to prevent heart disease. They do contain fat bit it’s the healthy monounsaturated kind which increases good cholesterol.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil, has been part of the Mediterranean Diet for centuries and a dietary staple for some of the world’s healthiest populations. This traditional oil which contains monounsaturated fatty acids and antioxidants, can offer some powerful health benefits including reducing the risk of heart disease. We import our single farm, single variety, cold pressed oil directly from the farmer to safeguard the purity of the oil we use.
Pine Nuts or Kernels, which are actually the seeds of pine cones and not an allergen, give all our products that superior taste. They contain powerful phytochemicals that reduce inflammation in the body plus lutein and zeaxanthin which filter harmful high-energy blue wavelengths of light, helping to protect the eyes against macular degeneration and glaucoma.
Scientists now know that most of the widely publicised health benefits of fresh Garlic are derived from the sulphur compound allicin, formed when the garlic clove is chopped or crushed and when it is used in its raw state. Garlic is also low in calories but rich in Vitamins C & B6 plus manganese.
Sometimes referred to as Solar Powered Fruit, Sundried Tomatoes are a concentrated source of nutrients including Vitamins C & K plus potassium, which helps nerves communicate and regulates electrolyte balance and magnesium, which maintains healthy bone tissue and in energy production, among many others benefits.
