Though it was important in ancient times, extra virgin olive oil is now known for its nutritional qualities and its connection to the Mediterranean diet.

Extra virgin olive oil has seen an increase in popularity due to its ability to lower blood pressure and the risk of heart disease. It is a staple ingredient in the Mediterranean diet. Extra virgin olive oil is also a heart healthy alternative to butter, and can be used to enhance the flavor of many dishes.

According to Flavor Your Life, Tuscan olive oil can be used to make many different kinds of meals, including pesto trapanese, Tuscan cipollata, bruschette and salad.

Flavor Your Life, a campaign supported by the European Union, Unaprol and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, is dedicated to providing the latest in industry news and health information about European extra virgin olive oil.
