Bertolli brings some Italian ‘gusto’ to Manila

Now back in the Philippines, Bertolli, one of Italy’s leading brands in olive oil, invites you to imbibe the Mediterranean lifestyle with every dash of olive oil. Bertolli infuses food with the flavour of the Mediterranean where the pace of life is more relaxed, the food is simple and naturally delicious and everyday pleasures are richer.

The Bertolli tradition began in 1865 in Italy. In the small town of Lucca, Francesco and Caterina Bertolli opened a trading shop underneath the family home, where they sold olive oil. In the years since that first store, Bertolli has grown into an international brand. In the Philippines, Bertolli is set to bring the magic of olive oil to wholesome, flavourful food to every dish.

Olive oil is touted as one of the healthiest oils for everyday cooking. Olive oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, in particular oleic acid, which helps keep the cardio circulatory system in good health.Unsaturated fats help maintain the body’s arterial elasticity and positively affect the “good” cholesterol (HDH). Olive oil is also rich in phenolic compounds which act as natural anti-oxidants, not present in any other oiland is also a significant source of Vitamin E. If you replace foods that are high in saturated fat with the unsaturated fat from olive oil, without increasing the total number of calories, you can lower your cholesterol and thereby reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

Olive oils are great for all-purpose cooking because of its unique flavor. Extra virgin olive oils are good for dressing salads, basting meats and vegetables, dips, marinades and sauces. If you prefer a robust, fruity flavour, choose Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil. For cooking at higher temperatures, you can use Bertolli Classico or Extra Light Olive Oil, which are stable at high temperatures. Bertolli Classico Olive Oil has a mild, distinguishable taste, and is an excellent all-purpose cooking oil. You can use it for sautéing, stir frying, salad dressings and pasta sauces. Bertolli Extra Light Olive Oil is light, fresh tasting and stable at high temperatures, so it can also be used for baking and frying.

The Mediterranean lifestyle is about finding the perfect balance between work and leisure, food and friends. It’s about enjoying life to the full – through fresh, healthful foods, enjoyed with family and friends, finding a social balance between work and relaxation and experiencing the pleasures of an active life. With Bertolli in your meals, you’ll surely enjoy the benefits of a fine Mediterranean lifestyle. Bertolli is exclusively distributed by Fly Ace Corporation. It is available in all Rustan’s supermarkets nationwide. Learn more about Bertolli at www.flyacecorp.com.
