Organic Ice Pressed Rallis Olive Oil now available!!Posted: January 13, 2012
Our new Organic Ice Pressed Rallis Olive Oil has come in! Well actually it arrived last month and made its way into the gift baskets of a few lucky recipients this holiday season. We are so excited to be able to bring an oil of this quality to our customers.
This international award winning oil is one of the most authentic olive oils available today. It is a single estate organic olive oil from the Rallis family owned, centuries old, olive grove in Greece. The time honored traditions have all been respected when it comes to producing this oil. The olives are grown organically and are pressed within 12 hours of being hand harvested. This, combined with the unique extraction technique developed by Theo Rallis called “ice pressed”, means the oil is not heated during the pressing process, which in turn ensures that the integrity of the flavor is maintained and preserves the health enhancing nutrients that are contained in pure olive oil.
This is a step above the premium cold pressed extra virgin olive oils currently available in the marketplace. The cold pressed label is an unregulated one, and in many cases, the oil is heated to temperatures as high as 55 degrees Celsius or 135 degrees Fahrenheit, taking with it much of its nutrient value.
With a near flawless acidity of .1%, Rallis Ice Pressed Organic Olive Oil has an amazing taste profile and has become a favorite with chefs and foodies alike, and once you try it, it is sure to become one of yours!
Depending on whether you’re purchasing as a gift or not, the price for a 375 ml bottle is $30.00 to $33.00. Additional savings can be enjoyed by purchasing 2 bottles as the shipping cost remains the same whether purchasing 1 bottle or 2.
To your health!
