Olive Oil Recipes

Aristoleo

 

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”

We at Aristoleo consider this quote by Hippocrates to be a worthy theme for our High Phenolic Olive Oil recipes. It was Hippocrates’ reference to the medicinal benefits of early harvest olive oil made from green olives, along with a similar reference in Dioscorides’ Materia Medica that sparked the curiosity and subsequent research by Dr. Prokopios Magiatis and Eleni Melliou. This led to the method to measure the healthful phenolic compounds in olive oil using the sophisticated NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance). This in turn, led to the invention of the Aristoleo Test Kit. Modern research continues to find the evidence of the health benefits of polyphenol rich olive oil, especially those rich in oleocanthal and oleacein.

We invited Theresa James to create and share healthful and gastronomically pleasing dishes using High Phenolic Extra Virgin Olive Oil along with a cornucopia of healthful ingredients including meat, fish, fruits, nuts, vegetables, herbs and spices.

Visit our online Medium publication, “Beyond Organic, Beyond Extra Virgin” where we share these recipes along with a host of articles about research, news, events, brands and stories about High Phenolic Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
