It is a product of unripe, green olive fruits which is pressed on harvest day.
It has a distinctive green colour, which is attributed to the chlorophyll contained in unripe olives and result in its enriched antioxidant properties.
It differs in taste compared to other extra virgin olive oils, as it is more bitter, with a slightly piquant mark and the exceptionally intensive fruity character of the freshly-cut unripe olives.
The early harvest unprocessed and unfiltered olive oil PROTOLEO may have, after a while, some sediment settle on the bottom of the bottle. This is natural and indicates the olive oil’s purity.
