Premium Extra Virgin Australian Certified Organic Olive Oil
Certified organic and certified Australia extra virgin
We are proud to produce some of the highest quality organic extra virgin olive oil in Australia. The company that produces the olive oil we use has the entire grove NASAA Certified Organic, (certification number 3532P) as are the pressing and bottling procedures – so the entire production process is certified to be free of contaminants. This olive oil meets and exceeds both Australian and international standards and we are proud to be signatories to the Australian Olive Industry Code of Practice.
This organic olive oil is routinely tested by an independent laboratory to ensure it meets the IOOC chemical and organoleptic standards for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This has always been done even before it was required, to measure the quality of the oil and quantify improvements in our harvesting, processing and bottling practices from year to year.
Extra virgin olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil is essentially a fruit juice! It is obtained when oil is extracted solely by mechanical means (no excessive heat or solvents) from fresh, good quality olive fruit. Extra vrirgin olive oil is free of any taste defects and has a free fatty acidity level less than 0.8%. The olive oil is cold pressed on site immediately once picked, achieving an acidity level typically around 0.1% to 0.2% – placing our oil in the ultra-premium end of extra virgin!
Olive oil is the natural oil extracted from olives, the fruit of the olive tree.
But the predominant fatty acid in olive oil is a monounsaturated fat called oleic acid, making up 73% of the total oil content.
Monounsaturated fats are also quite resistant to high heat, making extra virgin olive oil a healthy choice for cooking.
Summary Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated oleic acid. This fatty
acid is believed to have many beneficial effects and is a healthy choice for
Extra virgin olive oil is fairly nutritious.
Apart from its beneficial fatty acids, it contains modest amounts of vitamins E and K.
But olive oil is also loaded with powerful antioxidants.
Extra virgin olive oil is loaded with antioxidants,
some of which have powerful biological effects.
Chronic inflammation is thought to be a leading driver of diseases, such as cancer, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s, arthritis and even obesity.
Extra-virgin olive oil can reduce inflammation, which may be one of the main reasons for its health benefits.
The main anti-inflammatory effects are mediated by the antioxidants. Key among them is oleocanthal, which has been shown to work similarly to ibuprofen, an anti-inflammatory drug (
Some scientists estimate that the oleocanthal in 3.4 tablespoons (50 ml) of extra virgin olive oil has a similar effect as 10% of the adult dosage of ibuprofen (
One study also showed that olive oil antioxidants can inhibit some genes and proteins that drive inflammation (
Olive oil contains nutrients that fight
inflammation. These include oleic acid as well as the antioxidant oleocanthal.
Stroke is caused by a disturbance of blood flow to your brain, either due to a blood clot or bleeding.
In developed nations, stroke is the second most common cause of death, right behind heart disease (13).
The relationship between olive oil and stroke risk has been studied extensively.
A large review of studies in 841,000 people found that olive oil was the only source of monounsaturated fat associated with a reduced risk of stroke and heart disease (
In another review in 140,000 participants, those who consumed olive oil were at a much lower risk of stroke than those who did not (
Several large studies demonstrate that people
who consume olive oil have a much lower risk of stroke, the second biggest
killer in developed countries.
Heart disease is the most common cause of death in the world (16).
Observational studies conducted a few decades ago showed that heart disease is less common in Mediterranean countries.
Extra virgin olive oil is one of the key ingredients in this diet, protecting against heart disease in several ways (19).
It lowers inflammation, protects “bad” LDL cholesterol from oxidation, improves the lining of your blood vessels and may help prevent excessive blood clotting (
Interestingly, it has also been shown to lower blood pressure, which is one of the strongest risk factors for heart disease and premature death. In one study, olive oil reduced the need for blood pressure medication by 48% (
Dozens — if not hundreds — of studies indicate that extra virgin olive oil has powerful benefits for your heart.
If you have heart disease, a family history of heart disease or any other major risk factor, you may want to include plenty of extra virgin olive oil in your diet.
Extra virgin olive oil has numerous benefits
for heart health. It lowers blood pressure, protects “bad” LDL cholesterol
particles from oxidation and improves the function of blood vessels.

Eating excessive amounts of fat causes weight gain.
In a 30-month study in over 7,000 Spanish college students, consuming a lot of olive oil was not linked to increased weight (
Consuming olive oil does not appear to
increase the likelihood of weight gain. Moderate intake may even aid weight
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common neurodegenerative condition in the world.
One of its key features is a buildup of so-called beta-amyloid plaques inside your brain cells.
One study in mice showed that a substance in olive oil can help remove these plaques (
Additionally, a human study indicated that a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil benefitted brain function (
Keep in mind that more research is needed on the impact of olive oil on Alzheimer’s.
Some studies suggest that olive oil may
combat Alzheimer’s disease, but more research is needed.
Olive oil appears to be highly protective against type 2 diabetes.
A randomized clinical trial in 418 healthy people recently confirmed the protective effects of olive oil (
In this study, a Mediterranean diet rich in olive oil reduced the risk of type 2 diabetes by over 40%.
Both observational studies and clinical
trials suggest that olive oil, combined with a Mediterranean diet, can reduce
your risk of type 2 diabetes.
Cancer is one of the most common causes of death in the world.
People in Mediterranean countries have a lower risk of some cancers, and many researchers believe that olive oil may be the reason (
More research is needed to determine whether olive oil in fact reduces your risk of cancer.
Preliminary evidence suggests that olive oil
may reduce cancer risk, but further studies are needed.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease characterized by deformed and painful joints.
Though the exact cause is not well understood, it involves your immune system attacking normal cells by mistake.
Olive oil seems particularly beneficial when combined with fish oil, a source of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids.
In one study, olive and fish oil significantly improved handgrip strength, joint pain and morning stiffness in people with rheumatoid arthritis (
Olive oil can help reduce joint pain and
swelling from rheumatoid arthritis. The beneficial effects are greatly
increased when combined with fish oil.
Olive oil contains many nutrients that can inhibit or kill harmful bacteria (
One of these is Helicobacter pylori, a bacterium that lives in your stomach and can cause stomach ulcers and stomach cancer.
Test-tube studies have shown that extra virgin olive oil fights eight strains of this bacterium, three of which are resistant to antibiotics (
A study in humans suggested that 30 grams of extra virgin olive oil, taken daily, can eliminate Helicobacter pylori infection in 10–40% of people in as little as two weeks (
Extra virgin olive oil has antibacterial
properties and has been found to be particularly effective against Helicobacter
pylori, a type of bacterium that can cause stomach ulcers and stomach
