Nutrition Tip

As a healthy fat, rich in polyphenols, olive oil can be an excellent ingredient to add to salads, soups and sauces for a rich and savory taste. With 75% of the fatty acid building blocks that make up olive oil coming from monounsaturated fats, these fats may plan an important role in reducing risk of developing certain cancers, like colon cancer.

Additionally, olive oil contains over 30 phytonutrients, including oleocanthal, squalene, and lignans. Olive oil is also rich in antioxidants, like Vitamin E.
