In the world of healthy eating olive oil is known for its health benefits, but as to what benefits specifically? Not many people know.
When talking about olive oil, you need to first understand that the body needs a certain amount of healthy fats. Healthy fats are fats that are easier for the body to process. Olive oil has a high amount of monounsaturated fatty acids, which is a healthy fat.
Olive oil has quite the reputation for keeping away strokes, lowering your risk of diabetes, and helping the heart and arteries. So, olive oil saves lives see?
I tend to be very picky about my olive oil. I love buying local as much as possible and also care about the flavor and quality of my olive oil.
Last week Pacific Sun Olive Oil sent me some of their olive oil and oh-my-word. This stuff is legit. I have tried it in my broccoli chicken & rice bake for grilling the veggies and meat. I also used it for grilled chicken solo so I could really get the flavor.
Not only are they local, but Pacific Sun has really nailed down the flavor in their oils too. They’ve received Best of Show and Best of Class to Northern California producer by the 2016’s LA International Olive Oil Competition, California Olive Oil Council Competition, and New York International Olive Oil Competition.
“We try to make all our EVOO with good standards,” explains Voitzuk, who joined Pacific Sun in 2011, “working with healthy, greener fruit, milling as soon as possible, malaxing as little as possible, and working with low temperatures throughout. We make decisions that will preserve polyphenol count, to filter every single olive oil we make immediately, and to make blends that will have a decent durability until we enter the new milling season.” exert from Pacific Sun’s Press Release
There’s nothing quite like pairing a quality product with quality people running the business.
