Extra Virgin, Cold-Pressed, Organic, Peruvian, Botija Olive Oil
Healthy Fats vs Bad Fats
We need fats in our diet to lubricate our joints, to aid digestion, and for healthy skin and brain function. Then why are diets high in fat considered so dangerous?
The difference is in the type of fats that are consumed. Diets high in saturated fats (animal fats) can have devastating effects on health, and are related to heart disease, stroke and cancers.
Olive oil, on the other hand, contains monounsaturated fats, which are beneficial to our health and can actually help reverse the damage done by saturated fats.Consider the renowned health of many Mediterranean peoples.Greeks consume high quantities of fats, but the majority are plant-based fats, such as those in olive oil.
Olive oil consumption is considerably high in Greece, yet Greeks suffer far less from cardiovascular diseases than many other populations.Extra Virgin Botija Olive Oil is an unparalleled example of quality and purity. This delectable oil is a great source of heart healthy fats, oleic acid, antioxidants, and vital nutrients such as calcium and vitamin E.
This oil is created by cold-pressing our wildly popular Peruvian Botija Olives. Our olives are grown on a small, organic family farm in Peru that has never been exposed to pesticides or chemical fertilizers.

The Sunfood Difference
Extra Virgin Botija Olive Oil is truly cold-pressed, which preserves nutrients and enzymes. Many low quality oils say they are cold-pressed, but temperatures often reach over 200 degrees, which degrades the delicate nutritional qualities and flavor of the oil.
These low-grade oils can even contain cheap “fillers” such as corn and sunflower oils. But the process for our Extra Virgin Botija Olive Oil never exceeds 70 degrees Fahrenheit and contains 100% pure olive oil. Plus our Extra Virgin Botija Olive Oil is packed in dark green glass to protect it from UV rays.
