The Korogonas Ark's Wild Products exclusively here for you!
The spiritual, eco-community Korogonas Ark is located on a high plateau close to the sea, at 125 meters above sea level in the very south of Peloponnese, Greece. Most of the lands on this plateau are either completely wild or being left by their owners with a minimum of human activity.
A Special Korogonas Ark Highlight:
The Korogonas Ark's Superior Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Wild Olive Oil
(made from olea europaea sylvestris varieties)
The Korogonas Ark's Superior Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Wild Olive Oil is made from hand picked wild olives coming from our wild and untouched environment of the Korogona’s Ark’s lands. It is really cold pressed at temperatures from 18 up to max. 22°C in a high quality two phase press, meaning there is no third phase of high speed spinning centrifugal forces plus added warm/hot waters which may result in more quantity but always in great loss in terms of quality: All living enzymes stay with our press literally alive and all solid particles which remain in the unfiltered oil, are ingredients of high nutritional value, adding at the same time immensely to the wonderful taste and aroma of this very special gourmet/healing oil.
This makes the Korogonas Ark's Superior Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Wild Olive Oil a real gourmet highlight for delicatessen purposes, for all who choose only the best for their plate, as well as for all health oriented people who use it more for its wonderful health supporting and immune system boosting qualities as well as for its wellness and therapeutic effects when applied as skin oil.
The Korogonas Ark's Superior Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Wild Olive Oil is a real supplement and health-product deriving directly from mother nature’s best olives, the wild olea europaea sylvestris varieties. Most of the original attributes and ingredients of the wild fruits are kept alive and inside the oil due to the very careful treatment at the Korogonas Ark:
1) real cold pressing (max. 22°C),
2) two-phase press/extrahation (no destructive third Phase which literally kills all enzymes, no added warm/hot water for faster procedures and higher oil quantity at the expense of quality!),
3) no filtering whatsoever, which results in a ’foggy’ oil consistency, containing many deliberately wanted parts of the original fruit,
4) acidity from 0,19 to max 0,26 (clearly under 0,30 and massively under the 0,80 value given for extra virgin olive oils),
5) hyper-oxides 3,2 (allowed are up to 20!),
6) very high concentration in polyphenols (antioxidants), which are labelled and know for their antiinflammation properties and for cancer prevention.
Comparison of a high quality, "conventional“ extra virgin olive oil (C) with the Korogonas Ark Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil (K-A):
Polyphenol N K-A
Oleocanthal 99mg/Kg 532mg/Kg (in good quality wild olive oils this number varies from 4-7times higher!)
Oleacein 48mg/Kg 345mg/Kg (7-10times higher)
Hydroxytyrosol <5mg/Kg 295mg/Kg (50-65times higher)
Tyrosol <5mg/Kg 635mg/Kg (110-150times higher).
The superiority of wild olive oil compared to conventional olive oil is also shown in numbers more than clear and in general, wild olive oils do have much higher quantities in the shown polyphenols (and other healthy substances!), which may vary due to the time/month of harvest, climatic conditions and way of farming (see "X-times higher" numbers above).
The Korogonas Ark's Superior Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Wild Olive Oil thus is usually a little "cloudy" and shows slight settlement of solid particles on the bottom and/or walls of the bottle, which derive from the wild olives themselves and are more than welcome. Before use, the bottle should be slightly shaken in order to dissolve the particles in the oil and use all parts, these wonderful olives have given us! Contrary to a widespread opinion in Greece, which says that wild olive-oil is very bitter and useless, this wonderful gift from mother nature is a real highlight both, in terms of taste, flavour and aroma as well as in terms of health promoting attributes: For real gourmets it provides an experience which can be described only partly and always insufficiently with the words:
Smooth, delicately light with a flowery, nutty taste and a softly bitter finish.
The superior quality of this product is underscored by the data concerning acidity (around 0,2) and hyper-oxides (3,2) as well as the polyphenols, that can literally be tasted not only by gourmets of the haute cuisine…
The Korogonas Ark's Superior Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Wild Olive Oil is for sure not meant to replace any other oils for frying, cooking, BBQ etc.! It IS rather meant to be used as it is, with no alteration whatsoever especially with no up-heating. Even one or two teaspoons full per day are sufficient as support and boost for our immune system and overall wellness but you can use, of course, more if you want to replace a conventional highclass olive oil e.g. in raw salads etc. of course, without any unwanted side effects:
It can be used as
- in foods for gourmet and delicatessen dishes,
- for external use on the skin, either as it is or in combination with other ingredients (this kind of oil is being used in very small quantities in highly expensive skin and health care products). The external use is said to provide a wonderful sense of lightness, smooth and healthy skin and an overall sense of wellness.
The wild olives, grown on our lands at 125 meters above sea level, close to the Laconian Gulf of Peloponnese, are a 100% natural product with no treatment whatsoever:
no pesticides, neither chemical nor natural ones are being used as well as
no watering is being done.
Our wild olive trees get on our land everything they need directly provided by mother earth herself, plus our personal love and caring which is part of our overall natural farming concept. The non-watering of these trees ensures them to grow slowly but strongly with great resistance to all impacts of nature. Also, this ensures an extraordinarily high quality of the fruits, in terms of physical ingredients, aroma as well as energetically speaking which, of course, results in superior quality olive oil. We include our trees actively in our daily program, name them, we treat and speak with them as “partners” and show the right respect to every single one of them, helping them out only with a little pruning of old, tired and dried branches, so that they can focus and use all their power for the building of new, fresh and strong branches. This respect, of course, applies also to the harvest of the olives of all our trees, either wild or domesticated varieties, which is being done 100% by hand, with only support nets, combs and a small handsaw but without any technical or aggressive means such as chainsaws, electrical forks or hitting rods, which, besides of the stress these methods bring to the tree, very often lead to tree cancer and other infections.
