Gourmet Kalamata Olives Milenies
With apple, apple cider vinegar and laurel
At Sakellaropoulos organic farms, in Sparta, Laconia, since 1992, the first Greek terroir has been created with certified organic cultivation, vertical production and approved packaging according to Greek and international standards.
After years of efforts with exclusively vertical self-production (single estate), innovative methods and scientific knowledge, we cultivate, produce and package the very innovative "Milenies" gourmet table olives.
The Milenies gourmet Kalamata olives are of high quality, with aromatic apple, whole, with juice, pulp and peel. They are complemented by organic extra virgin olive oil, wonderful apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and delicate laurel, which are the wonderful ingredients that complete them.
They are considered one of the leading creativity expressions of Sakellaropoulos organic farms, belonging to their premium series "Gourmet Kalamata Olives".
They are one of the functional olive products (functional foods) of our organic farms, with a concentration of health-protective substances, based on scientific research of university institutions and multiple awards in international competitions of taste and quality.
At the same time, the high quality Milenies olives are completely natural table olives, with a very unique taste and flavor, which lead to the conclusion that they are table olives with superior organoleptic characteristics.
They combine the authentic, pure taste of Kalamata olives with their specialized natural way of processing, based on tradition and scientific monitoring, with minimal addition of salt but also with a unique combination of earthy flavors of delicate apple, healthy apple cider vinegar, aromatic laurel and notes of lemon.
The end result is that the table olives Milenies by Sakellaropoulos organic farms are an experience of unique taste of high quality, now recognized worldwide in many international olive competitions around the world.
Their production methodology is innovative, starting exclusively from our organic farms, which is why they are characterized by the international term single estate olives.
There is absolute management during their handmade collection at the optimal stage of ripening, with simultaneous triple quality sorting before they go through the process of many months of natural fermentation, in a few hours from the olive harvest.
Their non-thermal processing (pasteurization) at any stage, from harvest to final packaging, has a significant effect on their content of beneficial micronutrients but also on their high quality and taste.
The gourmet Kalamata table olives Milenies by Sakellaropoulos organic farms are 100% natural, and are not processed or artificially tanned, like the usual olives on the market. At the same time, no intervention is made in their physical form, such as the deconstructive "slitting" or the violent "cracking" or their exposure to the sun and the atmosphere, as in the usual olives of the market.
Another important difference is that in the Milenies gourmet olives, the salt content is at very low levels, throughout the fermentation process but also in the final packaging, at a rate of less than 50% of the average salt content of the olives that usually on the market.
They are produced without chemical additives, without artificial preservatives and without pasteurization. No sodium hydroxide, ferrous gluconate or other chemicals are used during the debittering process, which destroy many of the beneficial components of the olive and the substances that promote the development of high aromatic and taste characteristics.
Consequently, the gourmet olives Milenies by Sakellaropoulos organic farms have great nutritional value, as they contain vitamins, polyphenols, tocopherols, antioxidants and beneficial micronutrients, which are preserved in olives through the natural process of many months of fermentation. The result is a "live" functional food with wonderful natural aromas and excellent taste.
Milenies olives are characterized as one of the types of olives with beneficial health and protective ingredients. These beneficial ingredients in table olives are phenols, mainly hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol and their derivatives, which are powerful micronutrients belonging to natural antioxidants.
Apart from the rich health-protective ingredients, the unique identity of the premium series "Gourmet Kalamata Olives" and especially of the Milenies olives is defined by their taste profile, which is of very high quality.
The gourmet olives Milenies by Sakellaropoulos organic farms belong to the international category "excellent olives", have many characteristics that give them perfect taste personality, proper ripening fruity olive aroma, are plentiful with uniformity of size, low salt content and proper firmness.
The delicious palette of Milenies olives is completed by the slight bitterness, the rich fibrous texture, the spicy notes in the taste, the freshness and the refined aromas.
Their identity is completed with a prolonged aftertaste, in which the ingredients that accompany them contribute harmoniously, with predominantly apple and apple cider vinegar, along with the organic extra virgin olive oil from our organic farms.
The combination of aromatic herbs and their proportion in all stages of production of Milenies olives is an innovation, a delicious "secret" of Sakellaropoulos organic farms.
The impressive laurel, which is included in the herbs with the international term fine herb, is complemented by the charismatic apple cider vinegar embraced by the flowery notes of the lemon and the organic olive oil of our production.
The final character of the Milenies olives is given by the beneficial delicate apple in all its appearances, with its aromatic skin, its special juice but also its tasty pulp, which leads to a gastronomic pleasure of an autumn promenade in Nature, among red apple trees, full of fruits and silver-green olives groves that are ready to welcome us.
For this special taste and high quality, the natural table olives Milenies have been awarded in the largest international table olive tasting competitions.
