Susan Testa, Director of Sales and Marketing for high-quality olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, "Consumers may not know that adding olive oil to their vegetables can have so many health benefits, but olive oil truly does add more to the food that many eat everyday."

By adding olive oil to vegetables what happens is a combination of nitrate rich vegetables (green leafy types like spinach, wild greens and root vegetables) and unsaturated fats in olive oil, which can protect from hypertension.

Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers.  The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
