A GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF OUR PRODUCT

Our product, designated as MEDOLIVA® is produced by a patented production scheme by using as raw material clean vegetation waters from the decanter separators of carefully selected olive mills producing only extra virgin olive oil exclusively from organic olive crops in Mediterranean conditions.

The patented production process does not involve organic solvents whatsoever but only super clean potable water or other hazardous material and is operated in environmental friendly mode following the EU adopted principle of total discharge.

The product is produced in liquid form and it is stable and safe without any need of any preservative addition.

Furthermore, a unique homogenization technique applied during MEDOLIVA® production reduces most of the volume of its dissolved particles and thus guarantees high antioxidant activity and improved functionality which is relevant to micro encapsulated products.

The product has many useful applications in many sectors like food, nutraceuticals and food supplements, cosmetics and personal care products etc.
