Date:8/2/2013

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) August 02, 2013

On August 2, Flavor Your Life, a European Union funded campaign, explores how influential olive oil has been in Mediterranean countries and how it continues to influence popular diets.

The origins of the olive oil plant are not definite, but it is clear that olive oil is linked to early civilizations. Believed to be rooted in the Mediterranean area, the olive oil plant spread quickly from Anatolia and Egypt to the islands of Cyprus and Crete. From here, the olive oil plant traveled throughout the area to eventually reach all of the Mediterranean countries.

According to Greek mythology, the city of Athens was built with the roots of olive trees. The Goddess Athena was believed to have won the contest over who should look over the city by creating the olive tree to provide a precious juice used for health and beauty.

Today, extra virgin olive oil has become a large part of the Mediterranean diet. The now renowned diet is known for its many health benefits. Carol Firenze, author of The Passionate Olive, shares how important the Mediterranean diet has become. “Extra virgin olive oil is the cornerstone of the Mediterranean Diet,” she says. “Along with fruit and vegetables, whole grains, fish and poultry, the Mediterranean Diet is the best defense against high cholesterol, high blood pressure and excess body weight (the three main factors contributing to heart disease).”

Flavor Your Life, a campaign supported by the European Union, Unaprol and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, is dedicated to providing the latest in industry news and health information about European extra virgin olive oil. Extra virgin olive oil enhances the flavors of your recipes while providing health benefits. Flavor Your Life campaign, the voice of olive oil production quality control, aims to educate consumers so they can make informed decisions when purchasing olive oil.
