Found this in Reader’s Digest….

18. Fall in love with olive oil. A study found that people who consumed about 2 tablespoons of virgin olive oil daily for just one week had lower LDL and higher levels of antioxidants in their blood.

The only thing better would be extra virgin olive oil. We’ll bet you know where to find the best heart healthy olive oil: Olio2go. com

Mascio Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Mascio Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Our friend, Mrs. Gioia Pinna at Principe di Mascio, has sent us three authentic recipes to share with our customers. These are best with Principe di Mascio DOP Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  The recipes were just added today at Olio2go.

We toured the Fancy Food Show at the Javits Center in New York on June 28-29. This is the best annual extravaganza of foods from around the world. We enjoy visiting with other importers and distributors — and looking through the Italian “pavillion” for great new products. One highlight was my visit with Antonio Roversi of Azienda del Carmine.  While we have now carried his wonderful oils for two harvest years, he is working with a group to make a full selection of Italy’s best available in the U.S.– pasta, manicaretti, and other fabulous tastes!

We’re now considering holiday foods (Torrone, anyone?), new mostarda, hazelnut oil, white balsamic vinegar and other treats. Let us know what you are looking for. Use Olio2go‘s Contact form!
