As a health influencer, I understand the benefits of extra virgin olive oil, but not all olive oil is created equal, far from it. It’s important to choose a brand with high phenolic content that is harvested early and cold pressed. The Governor, now my go-to olive oil brand, accomplishes all these feats and it also tastes amazing.

The Governor Premium Edition Cold-Pressed Extra Virgin Olive Oil is outstanding in quality and taste. The customer service received is second to none. He was very understanding when I ran out and I was unwell- I was not able to place my order before Christmas. Nevertheless, he posted it out to me quickly so I was not without. Thank you so much.

I have been using The Governor Evoo for years now. As a breast and lung cancer survivor, I have used olive oil therapeutically and drink it every day as well as adding it to most meals. The protective properties of this life-giving oil are not to be underestimated, and it is a great
addition to a healthy diet containing polyphenols and oleocanthal.

Having also done a blind taste test with other premium brands I can honestly say that the Governor far surpasses anything else on the market in its outstanding taste and quality. It has a rich, silky texture, amazingly delicious flavour and there is absolutely no comparison to any other olive oil.

The Governor Premium is smoothingly smooth and yet full of Corfiot character. Either start your morning served straight up with a daily peppery kick or drizzle its goodness to finish any deserving dish a little goes a long way. Only dress with the best!

Healthy Extra Virgin Olive Oil Recipes

Many people choose extra virgin olive oil simply for the delicious flavour and aroma that it adds to any dish but beyond its culinary use, it is also incredibly nutritious and acts as a wonderful health supplement that helps us to feel full and satisfied for longer, which can be an important aid in weight loss.

Benefits of olive oil

High phenolic EVOO is the healthiest and highest quality extra virgin olive oil.

HP olive oils are made from unripe green olives harvested early in the season, which are processed using specific methods that preserve their high phenolic content. They must pass sensory and chemical tests plus a chemical analysis of polyphenol levels.

The Governor was the first ever to be awarded the health claim. It was scientifically tested at the University of Athens and compared with the results of 700 other olive oil samples, from 30 different olive varieties from around the world. It was found to contain 7 x higher than the average samples.

The Governor EVOO contains consistently between 1000-1500 mg/kg (total phenols) 1000 mg/kg (Oleocanthal and Oleacein) These phenolic antioxidant compounds have been found to possess powerful anti-inflammatory properties which have been associated with decreased inflammation, improved cognitive function, lower incidence of diabetes, and improved cardiovascular health.

In comparison to other extra virgin olive oils you may find in the shops they can vary significantly and range from anything between 50-250mg/kg
