Olive Oil producers and brothers Dimitris and Andreas Tsikouris were born and raised in Ormylia, Chalkidiki, Greece. They shared a lifelong love of the blessed olive tree since childhood. Eventually, in adulthood, they came to realize a vision to create their own olive oil, with a particular focus on creating an Extra Virgin Olive Oil with maximum health benefits.
This single-variety, early harvested EVOO, has all the taste characteristics of the Chondolia variety. It has a rich fruity aroma and flavor with notes of freshly-cut grass, herbs, olive leaf, pepper, tomato, citrus fruits and a very balanced bitter and spicy aftertaste.
The slight burning sensation in the throat that lingers is due to its highly protective phenolic compounds!
Due to its high phenolic content, it has gained a health claim indication, according to the European Labelling Regulation No. 432/ 2012 of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
Thallon’s claim to maximizing health is justified by the high content of hydroxytyrosol and its derivatives. As such Thallon contains a very high content in two of the most important phenols
which render olive oil such a powerful antioxidant. Oleocanthal and Oleacein contribute to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress, their derivative complexes provide protective properties for our health and protect the brain from Alzheimer's disease and Dementia, also shielding us from inflammations and heart attacks. In short, they are a huge support to our Cardiovascular System, and it is recommended that we consume around 20g per day (of high phenolic olive oil) which translates as approximately four tablespoons.
Thallon was created for those who want to combine gastronomy and healthy living. This is a high-quality product, rich in healthy nutrients - an excellent example of a "great healer" as Hippocrates used to call olive oil highlighting its therapeutic properties.
Add four, or more, tablespoons of fresh THALLON EVOO daily to your diet and enjoy its fruity taste and all the above benefits for your body.
Start by sprinkling your breakfast with this high phenolic EVOO to offer your body an antioxidant shield during the day. Try it with your sandwich, yogurt, fruit salad, oatmeal, crepes, and even pancakes! You are going to love the combination!
Continue with sprinkling your salads, red and white meats, soups, risotto, pasta, and pizza.
If you are a lover of good Extra Virgin Olive Oil, experiment with it. Dare new combinations you never imagined. Offer to your body and taste buds a whole new experience!
