What makes SkapEti Olive Oil Unique?
Greek Single Estate Extra Virgin Olive Oil
The problem with EVOO, right now.
The olive oil market is vast, full of choice and price-ranges. There are hundreds of EVOO listed brands out there. Many fail to meet the standards we try to set. There have been reports of mainstream brands mixing EVOO with lower-quality olive oil and, in some cases, chemicals. Unfortunately, these do not have the health benefits or true authentic flavour.
We pride ourselves on quality control. But regulations are limited and market standards have slipped. Right now, only 10% of olive oil marketed as EVOO meets the golden standard. Most are made from a concoction of different olives, from different regions, countries and even continents. The unique production process cannot be traced or guaranteed. Mixing and blended consistencies are making the majority of products bland and unfulfilling. The issue is: many people do not realise this until they taste olive oil like ours.

Health Benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
EVOO & CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH
Our olive oil is made from the heart, but it can also help yours. Yes, olive oil can help combat heart problems. Chronic inflammation is a major cause of cardiovascular disease and olive oil is an effective way to reduce the risk of all of these.
There are a number of cardio protective properties within EVOO – well documented over hundreds of years. Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant qualities – only found in EVOO – have all shown to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels. These properties include oleocanthal, hydrotyrosol, tyrosol, and oleuropein. Olive oil is more than just an ingredient; it’s healthy living on a number of levels.
