Product Description
Crafted on the coast of the Aegean sea by a Coop of farmers, this Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is simply exquisite. Once you have tried it you will never go back to your old brand!

Where Does it Come From?

This unique extra virgin olive oil is produced by a co-operative of small farmers living on the coast of the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas. In this area of the world the climate and soil offer perfect growing conditions for Aegean olives. These are the distinctive Turkish olives that are used to create Wilderness Family Naturals' extra virgin olive oil.
Each farmer maintains ecologically sound orchards, respecting the environment and preserving their historic land located near the legendary city of Troy. They farm tightly controlled organic gardens to produce the finest Aegean Olives available.

How is the oil processed?

Once the olives are collected from the trees, only the best young olives are selected. This assures only the highest quality extra virgin oil. Young olives produce a particularly low acid oil, while older olives will produce oil with higher acidity. However they can't be harvested too young or the oil is bitter. With olive oil the timing of the harvest is everything. Rejected olives are used in either a lower grade olive paste or for composting. Any leaves with the harvested olives are then removed and the fruits washed in cold water. Next, the olives are cold pressed using 27°C (80.6°F) water and gently centrifuged. This centrifugal process is not commonly used by commercial olive oil producers because of its expense and technology. However, when olive oil is produced by centrifuge, the resulting oil is a far superior product. This oil is never exposed to heat and no chemical additives adulterate it's purity. This high quality, raw olive oil is then packaged for our customers in dark-green glass containers and stored under organic sanitary conditions. Each production run is carefully tested to ensure all quality control standards are met. It has a maximum acidity of 0.8% and contains a full-bodied olive flavor. Because it is produced under cold conditions and remains raw, there is also maximum nutrient retention.

Light Organic Olive Oil

At first I wasn't sure if I liked Wilderness Family Naturals Organic Olive oil, as it has a much lighter taste than other olive oils I've tried. However, now that we've used it a few times, my family loves it. Will definitely purchase more!

Great to use for liver (and gallbladder) flushes

I use olive oil for salad dressings and when flushing out my liver (and gallbladder). When doing a liver flush I mix 4 ounces of olive oil with the freshly squeezed juice of one red grapefruit and drink very quickly. This is a LOT of olive oil to ingest at one time and I want the highest quality available. This is the olive oil I use and recommend to friends, family, and clients. My best to all always and in all ways, Steph
