Olive Oil «AEOLIKO» and «MYTILINIO» is a mixture of Virgin Olive Oil and Refined Olive Oil.
LESEL in accordance with internationally approved methods produces its Pure Olive Oil by mixing Virgin Olive Oil (of acidity around 1.0%) and Refined Olive Oil (acidity 0.2%). The final acidity of Pure olive Oil is 0.1-1.0% and it is more suitable for cooking and frying. Pure Olive Oil has a higher nutritional value than other vegetable oils and fats such as Olive Pomace Oil, Corn oil, Peanut oil, Soy oil, Butter etc. Pure Olive oil undergoes no substantial structural change and maintains it’s nutritional value for a longer period in comparison to other edible oils. This is due not only to its antioxidant properties but also to its high oleic acid content. Pure Olive Oil has a high smoking point (210°C), which is substantially higher than the ideal temperature for frying food (180°C). By carefully filtering the olive oil after each frying, can be used a number of times for healthy and tasty meals.
