March 2012 Welcome to the D'Avolio eNewsletter Edition 2012.2

New Arrivals at D'Avolio - Cobrançosa, Portugal Robust Intensity!

Cobrançosa, Portugal Robust IntensityCobrançosa is a rare variety of olive on the international market. Cobrançosa, the most sought-after of all Portuguese varieties, comes originally from the mountainous region of Trás-os-Montes. It is considered a Northern Hemisphere oil harvested in November 2011.

Delightfully floral and harmonius, this outstanding Early Harvest oil is viscous & complex, layered with flavors & lingering creamy fruitiness to balance the perfect amount of delayed bitterness & pungency.

D'Avolio offers this wonderful varietal only for a short time and has given it a taste rating of Robust Intensity! Visit the Cobrançosa Olive Oil page for additional information.


March is Nutrition Awareness Month

Nutrition through Olive OilD'Avolio promotes the benefits of cooking with Olive Oils through a series of articles that can be found on the "Your Health" page. This month we present Nutrition through Olive Oils.

Nutrition and Healthy Eating
by: Donald Hensrud, M.D.

"The main type of fat found in all kinds of Olive Oil is monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs). MUFAs are actually considered a healthy dietary fat. If your diet emphasizes unsaturated fats, such as MUFAs and polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs), instead of saturated fats and trans fats, you may gain certain health benefits.

MUFAs and PUFAs may help lower your risk of heart disease by improving related risk factors. For instance, MUFAs may lower your total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels. MUFAs may also help normalize blood clotting. Some research shows that MUFAs may also benefit insulin levels and blood sugar control, which can be especially helpful if you have type 2 diabetes." To read more visit the Article at the Mayo Clinic.

Due to the chemistry and freshness of D’Avolio Olive Oils they can be utilized at temperatures reaching 350-400°F, and can be used as a substitute for butter and vegetable oils in many of your favorite recipes. Please refer to our Cooking Basics Conversion Tables for additional information. Recipes on the site demonstrate how you can bring Olive Oils into your kitchen and not sacrafice a wonderful eating experience.

Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil
By Tom Mueller
For millennia, fresh olive oil has been one of life's necessities-not just as food but also as medicine, a beauty aid, and a vital element of religious ritual. Today's researchers are continuing to confirm the remarkable, life-giving properties of true extra-virgin, and "extra-virgin Italian" has become the highest standard of quality.
