Cold Extracted First Harvest Evoo
Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms, in Sparta, Laconia, since 1992, have created the first Greek terroir with certified organic cultivation, vertical production and approved packaging according to Greek and international standards.
At Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms we treat olive production as a quality act, with respect to the long tradition of the land and the care of the ecosystem.
After years of efforts with exclusively vertical self production (single estate), innovative methods, combined with the tradition of the land but also with scientific knowledge, we created a very special olive oil product, the most award-winning Greek organic olive oil, Fyllikon First Harvest.
Fyllikon First Harvest organic olive oil is a very unripe cold extracted organic extra virgin olive oil, from olives in a very unripe stage of ripening, with intense taste characteristics of high quality. What is certain is that it is not just the first olive oil of the year, also known as fresh olive oil.
Its production methodology starts exclusively from our organic olive groves, which is why it is characterized by the international term single estate organic olive oil. There is absolute management of the very small and completely unripe olives during the handmade collection, with parallel quality sorting before they reach the olive mill, which is done in a few hours from the harvest of the olives.
Fyllikon First Harvest olive oil differs significantly from conventional oils or just fresh oils, because it is produced, usually in mid-September to early October, with a completely cold extraction of a few hours after harvest, at 16-18 ° C and is therefore a cold extracted unripe olive oil that requires large quantities of small olives for its production.
The main characteristics of the certified organic olive oil Fyllikon First Harvest are the very low acidity (many years it reaches 0.1%) which classifies it not only as an extra virgin olive oil but the new category that is gradually created, of extrissima premium, with ideal chemical indicators analysis.
Also, its high content of phytosterols and a very high level of polyphenols, mainly oleocanthal, which characterize it as our main biofunctional phenolic olive oil, with a health claim based on the European regulation (E.U. Health Claim 432/2012). It is awarded every year by the World Olive Center for Health for its high content of polyphenols that exceed the limits set by the EU regulation up to 4 times.
For its great health value, Fyllikon First Harvest participates in the honorary three-year study "Interventional Study of the Mediterranean Diet" conducted by Harvard University and the School of Public Health, in the diet of 1000 volunteer firefighters in 44 fire stations.
The purpose of the three-year study by the Harvard School of Public Health is to show that by changing dietary habits, in a scientifically proven way, in groups of people at high risk of disease and especially heart attacks while performing their work, such as firefighters, this risk decreases to extremely high rates.
The cold extracted extra virgin organic Fyllikon olive oil is also a culinary delight with high nutritional value. It has multiple distinctions and awards in its assets, in the most prestigious international competitions in the world for its taste and quality. It is rightfully considered the most award-winning organic Greek olive oil.
