On April 25, Tuscan extra virgin olive oil advocacy group Flavor Your Life releases a statement outlining the history of olive oil and how it became an essential part of the Mediterranean diet.

According to Flavor Your Life’s publication, The History of Olive Oil, the olive tree is a plant native to the Mediterranean area. It produces one harvest of olives per year. For over 5,000 years, olive trees have been a prominent part of the Mediterranean culture and cuisine. Olive trees, first found in the Caucasus area, spread to Egypt and then to the islands of Cyrus, Rhodes, Crete and Greece.

Olives, according to The History of Olive Oil, were used for many years in sacred rituals, peace offerings and everyday life. Ancient civilizations held olives and olive oil in high regard, using it for cosmetic purposes and to enrich the taste of food.

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. Extra virgin olive oil enhances the flavors of your recipes while providing health benefits. Flavor Your Life, the voice of extra virgin olive oil production quality control, aims to educate consumers so they can make informed decisions when purchasing extra virgin olive oil.
