Evelaio Healthy Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is obtained solely from Koronaiki (Crown) variety olives, harvested early to obtain a higher content of polyphenols (antioxidant compounds) – making it one of the more health beneficial olive oils. Polyphenols are responsible for the characteristic spicy and bitter aftertaste of superior extra virgin olive oil and are associated with profound health benefits. Polyphenols protect blood lipids from oxidative stress, contribute to the reduction of cholesterol levels, fight cardiovascular diseases, high blood pressure, certain types of cancer, reduce stroke risk, contribute to longevity and have anti-ageing and anti-inflammatory qualities.

Taste and Aroma

Eveleio stands outs for it’s aromas of grass, moderate fruity intensity and bitter spicy aftertaste that testifies to the unripe and fresh olives with low acidity value.


The team at Evelaion harvest their olives in the traditional way, picking them by hand in order to select only the best fruit for the tastiest, healthiest oil. Harvesting begins in late September, whilst the olives are still bright green. These olives yield much less oil than ripe olives and four times as many are required to make one litre of oil. On the same day as the harvest, olives are transported in ventilated crates to a certified oil mill near their farm. This prompt, careful handling is an important step in the production of this premium olive oil.


Health Benefits

Historically, olive oil has been an integral part of the Mediterranean tradition and diet. Consumption of extra virgin olive oil is associated with increased life expectancy as it contains high levels of phenols, tocopherols and phytosterols. EVOO has been the subject of many scientific studies and research in recent years. The presence of polyphenols such as, oleocanthal (a potent antioxidant in plants) has been linked to a number of health benefits, including decreasing inflammation, regulating blood sugar levels and potentially reducing the risk of heart disease and cancer.

Olive oil is also an example of a heart-healthy fat source, consisting primarily of monounsaturated fatty acids. A review by the American Heart Association has shown that replacing saturated fats (such as those found in butter, lard, and coconut oil) with monounsaturated fats (such as those found in olive oil) is linked with a significantly lower risk of heart disease. Evelaio Healthy Ultra Premium EVOO is rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats that help lower ‘bad cholesterol’ (LDL) and offer a good ratio between HDL (‘good cholesterol’) and LDL (‘bad cholesterol’) cholesterol.

More to the Gourmet Story…

Established 20 years ago, Evelaio are a small family-run organic cultivation business based in Cyprus and recently started producing organic extra virgin olive oil and early harvest extra virgin olive oil high in polyphenols.

Evelaio’s organic olive groves are located in Potami, a small village, close to Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus. Historically, Potami is known for its ideal climatic conditions for olive cultivation and for it’s excellent olive oil.

Evelaio sacrifice quantity for quality in their production of their EVOO. The result of this very early cold extraction is a precious oil very low in acidity (0.1% to 0.4% free fatty acids) which, is considerably more notable than the International Olive Council’s upper limit of 0.8% for the criteria of ‘extra virgin’. Evelaion is noteworthy for its fruitiness as well as for the especially bitter, spicy flavour characteristic of healthy early harvest EVOOs.

Evelaio Healthy Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil is eligible for the European health claim for olive oil according to EU Regulation 432/2012 making it an ideal choice for health-conscious consumers.
