Health and olive oil from Alicante´s Mountains

  • As it can attain temperatures exceeding 180°C, foods can be fried better.
  • It contains oleic acid which, when raw, is beneficial to bone growth and the development of the brain and the nervous system.
  • It does not produce cholesterol and is a magnificent ally against circulatory and cardiovascular diseases.
