Growing Olives For Over 500 Years

The Strakka Estate was founded during the period of Venetian rule in Cyprus, some five hundred years ago, and appears on Abraham Ortelius’s map of 1573. The Estate has had a continuous history of olive oil production since then, and has been organically farmed for the last twenty five years.

Our Olive Oil

Strakka organic extra virgin olive oil is carefully blended from Koroneiki, Kalamon and the local Cypriot variety of olives to produce its splendid flavour. The character and high quality of Strakka olive oil means it is ideal for use in salads and for fine cooking.

Health Benefits of High Phenolic Olive Oils

A very small proportion of the Extra Virgin Olive Oils produced in the Mediterranean contain phenolic compounds. There is a growing body of research showing how high phenolic oil can help prevent cancer, heart disease, and cognitive impairment.

Our new product represents an emerging category of early harvest olive oil that is rich in phenolic content and satisfies an E.U. Health Claim (Commission Regulation (EU) 432/2012) for enhanced health protective properties. This health claim is associated to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and recognises olive oil polyphenols, including the compounds oleocanthal and oleacein, as having anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. This Regulation can only be applied to olive oil containing at least 250mg of polyphenols per kg of olive oil and states that the beneficial effect is obtained from a daily intake of 20g of olive oil.

Health Claim (EU 432/2012): Olive oil polyphenols protect blood lipid from oxidative stress. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 20g of olive oil.

Polyphenols are a category of plant compounds that look like this under a microscope...
