Amanprana’s Hermanos Catalan extra virgin olive oil wins the 2015 Gourmet Prize for quality and flavour. One of the greatest olive oils – certified!
Good olive oil might cost a few euros more, but it is not fatty or rancid to taste, instead being green and fruity. If you swallow it you get a raw feeling in your throat, thanks to the tanning agents it contains.
Just like bad fats can do bad things to your body, good fats can have beneficial effects. If you spend a little more on real cold pressed olive oil (extra virgin), you’ll be dipping your baguette into a balm that benefits your entire cardiovascular system.Giulia Enders, Author of the German bestseller 'Darm mit charme’ (intestine with charm), p. 55
