How to Use
Why Kosterina Extra Virgin Olive Oil?
Polyphenols are powerful, naturally occurring antioxidants that are clinically proven to reduce inflammation in the body. Our EVOO has a polyphenol content of 470 mg/kg.
When olives are harvested early, they are picked and pressed before they are ripe. Our early harvest have higher levels of polyphenol content and our signature fresh, robust flavor.
All of our extra virgin olive oils are made from 100% Koroneiki olives harvested in southern Greece. The Kosterina family hails from Koroni - the home of the Koroneiki olive.
