This early harvest Kalamata is sweet and fragrant with notes of rose petal, artichoke and a creamy mouth feel followed by a wallop of pepperiness. The combination of picking the fruit early, at an extremely low green maturity index and minimal processing has resulted in high phenol content but more significant: extraordinary high and healthful amounts of the antioxidant oleocanthal (338.1 ppm) (NMR phenols*= 1,576 of which oleocanthal is 1,022)
Use for: Anytime you want maximum health-impacts (keeping in mind high polyphenol oils tend to be more bitter and have larger, more peppery finishes than lower antioxidant oils.
