The Process of Harvesting
The life cycle of an olive is a captivating journey from bloom to fruit, eventually maturing into an oil-bearing treasure. But what differentiates an early harvest from its late counterpart? The answer lies in the timing.
In the realm of olive oil production, timing is everything. The early harvest of olives typically occurs in November, just as the fruits start transitioning from green to black. This is when the olives are still relatively young, full of vigor, and robust in flavor.
The Uniqueness of Early Harvest Olive Oil
At Selo Olive Oil, our Croatian olive oil is not just a product; it's a symbol of our respect for time-honored traditions. We take immense pride in our early harvest process, which emphasizes quality over quantity. This early picking results in a lower yield of oil but with a substantially higher quality, more potent taste, and a richer concentration of health-boosting compounds.
An Antioxidant Powerhouse: The Benefits of Polyphenols
The early harvest yields an oil rich in polyphenols, a type of antioxidant that is a cornerstone of the Mediterranean diet. These natural compounds are renowned for their potential in combating inflammation, reducing the risk of heart disease, and possessing anticancer properties. They also lend early harvest olive oil its distinctive pungent flavor and peppery aftertaste.
A high-polyphenol Croatian olive oil from an early harvest not only benefits your taste buds but also your well-being. As part of a balanced diet, it's a simple and delicious way to infuse health into your everyday meals.
More than Just Polyphenols: A Symphony of Antioxidants
Alongside polyphenols, early harvest olive oil is teeming with other antioxidants such as Vitamin E and oleocanthal. These antioxidants protect your cells against damage by free radicals, thereby promoting overall health.
In fact, the higher antioxidant content in early harvest olive oil is what gives it a darker, more vibrant color and a slightly bitter taste, both indicators of its superior quality and health benefits.
