Kasandrinos Olive Oil

Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil , olive oil so amazing that you will be tempted to sip it from a shot glass like a fine scotch or rare whisky. This is what Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil lovers have done, and you will too.

Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil comes from the Koroneiki Olive which is grown in the perfectly warm and stable climate of the Southern Peloponnese and is very high in polyphenols. The ideal conditions for olive tree cultivation combined with the early harvest and the modern machinery used to press the olives are all instrumental in our quality and authenticity guarantee of Kasandrinos Olive Oil.

Once produced via cold extraction, the Koroneiko also offers a very balanced taste that combines a perfect mix of spicy and bitter. Our olives are hand picked and cold-pressed with only mechanical pressing methods, not chemically treated methods. All olives used in our oil are pressed within 48 hours of harvest, then stored in temperature sensitive, stainless steel tanks in a dry and shadowy place.

We are proud to bring our family tradition to you and hope you enjoy our Greek Extra Virgin Olive Oil as much as we do. Kasandrinos Olive Oil compliments the Paleo Diet, Raw Vegan Diet, Mediterranean Diet, and everything else in between.

We look forward to sharing part of Greece with you.

Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil and More:

Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The olive used in our olive oil is the Koroneiki which is grown in the perfectly warm and stable climate of the Southern Peloponnese. The ideal conditions for the olive trees cultivation combined with the early harvest and the modern machinery used to press the olives are all instrumental in our quality and authenticity guarantee. Once produced via cold extraction, the Koroneiki offers a very balanced taste that combines a perfect mix of spicy and bitter. Our olives are hand picked from our century old GMO free trees and cold pressed with only mechanical pressing methods. Every batch is given a chemical analysis. All olives used in our oil are sustainably sourced from our olive orchards in Laconia Greece and are pressed within 48 hours of harvest.

The 500ml bottle was carefully designed by true Olive Oil lovers. The dark shade of the glass was not chosen simply for aesthetic value, but rather to help minimize exposure to light. Let’s face it, we all know that Olive Oil is preserved best in a cool, dark place like a cupboard. But it is very difficult to remember to store a bottle after each use! Combined with the personalized design of the label, the dark glass will not only keep the oil fresh, but will look great on your counter top when you repeatedly forget to store it!

Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Tony and Effi Kasandrinos

Despite questionable, and highly unlikely reports of fake olive oil being imported and sold in the United States, there's still something to be said for looking to Greece, the motherlode of all things olive.

Kasandrinos International is a family owned business, operated by the brother and sister team, Effi and Tony Kasandrinos. Together they import the same Greek organic extra virgin olive oil they grew up on from their fathers village in Greece. The pair is passionate about health, fitness and truly great food. Effi resides in Las Vegas with her husband Brian and daughter Ava while Tony calls Newburgh, New York home where he is stationed as an active duty U.S. Marine with 20 years of service.

The story Of Kasandrinos International literally began in a box. Not just any old box but a Crossfit box. When Tony was stationed in Philadelphia, he was training at Crossfit Center City. It was no stretch to say he spent every minute away from duty in this gym. One day he had a case of his families Greek organic extra virgin olive oil that his uncle gave him in the trunk of his car and decided to share it with a few people. Over time, word built up with all the foodies and everyone was asking for their own bottle to take home. Fast forward a few months to when Tony and Diane Sanfilippo attended a Movnat seminar in West Virginia. At the community picnic table one afternoon, Tony decided to share the same Greek organic extra virgin olive oil with fellow attendees. Suffice it to say, the single case of oil he had on hand all but evaporated by days end.

You've heard about this amazing oil, shouted from all the Paleo rooftops. Prepare yourself for one heck of an olive oil, from top to bottom of the bottle, until the last drop is gone and you're back for more. The color is bright, the flavor is assertive, and the health benefits are all in the research.

Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a great addition to anyone's cooking toolkit.


Why is Kasandrinos Olive Oil different?

Answer: First, it's Extra Virgin. That's important, because Extra Virgin is the highest quality and most expensive olive oil classification. It should have no defects and a flavor of fresh olives. In chemical terms Extra Virgin olive oil is described as having a free acidity, expressed as oleic acid, of not more than 0.8 grams/100 grams and a peroxide value of less than 20 milliequivalent O2. It must be produced entirely by mechanical means without the use of any solvents, and under temperatures that will not degrade the oil (less than 86°F, 30°C).

How does an olive oil become "Extra Virgin?"

Answer: For an olive oil to qualify as "Extra Virgin" the oil must pass both an official chemical test in a laboratory and a sensory evaluation by a trained panel recognized by the (IOC) International Olive Council. The oil must be found to be free from defects while exhibiting some fruitiness.

What kind of olives are used in Kasandrinos Olive Oil?

Answer: Their olives come from a particular variety of olive tree which makes the taste so special: the Koroneiko olive tree. The Koroneiko olive tree is the most common in Greece and is one of the more unique olive tree varieties because it requires a warm and stable climate, which the Southern Peloponnese is known for. The Koroneiko tree is one of the few olive varieties that produce olive oil that have a two-year shelf life in comparison to most olive tree varieties which have a typical shelf life of 6 to 8 months. It is important to know that many olive oil companies elect to blend different varieties of olive oils in order to increase the shelf life, so the olive oil originating from the Koroneiko olive tree is in high demand. Kasandrinos is 100% Greek organic extra virgin olive oil.

Can you cook with olive oil?

Answer: It's a common misconception that you can't expose olive oil to heat. Refined olive oil is often placed around 468°F (242°C). This makes it a safe choice for most cooking methods, including most pan frying. Bottom Line: Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil's smoke point is somewhere around 375-420°F (190-215°C). This makes it a good choice for most cooking methods. EVOO is suitable for sautés, sauces, marinades, vinaigrettes, in addition to being a great finishing oil. The temperature should be kept below 350 degrees to play it safe.

How many olives are used to make olive oil?

Answer: Olive oil yields vary by variety and harvest conditions. Our average yield is usually about 35 gallons per ton. This equals approx. 7.6 pounds of olives for a 500 ml bottle (about 17 oz).

How should olive oil be stored?

Answer: Olive oil should be stored in a cool, dark place away from light and heat. When olive oil is exposed to heat, light, and air the valuable nutrients in theGreek organic extra virgin olive oil begin to oxidize and it will begin to lose its fruit flavors. The best containers for olive oil are dark glass or a tin.

How long does olive oil last?

What do you put olive oil on?

Answer: Everything from salads to even finishing ice cream. Drizzle it over salad or mix it into salad dressing. Use in marinades or sauces for meat, fish, poultry, and vegetables. ... Add at the end of cooking for a burst of flavor. Drizzle over cooked pasta or vegetables. Use instead of margarine as a healthy dip for bread.

What is the taste of olive oil?

Answer: The third of the three positive attributes of olive oil, in addition to fruity and pungent, is bitter. Bitterness, like pungency, is also an acquired taste. As anyone who has ever tasted an olive right off the tree can attest, bitter is a prominent taste in fresh olives.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of helping Paleo Diet Adherents easily identify products that met the basic tenets of the diet.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Paleo Approved, Paleo Vegan, and Paleo Friendly Certification Programs.


100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through Paleo Certifications. We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any paleo certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

How we determine Paleo Certification Standards:

The Paleo Foundation develops Certification Standards from a mixture of input from various experts in the Paleo Movement, community input, and from logically and critically assessing arguments for the inclusion or exclusion of specific foods. After all, the Paleo Diet is a theoretical template, and therefore logic must be taken into account when making determinations for an entire community. 

Paleo Approved, Certified Paleo, Paleo Friendly, and PaleoVegan Certification Programs:

Each Paleo Certification Program has a different set of standards. For the absolute strictest standards, Paleo Approved certifies farms, ranches, and single-ingredient products. Certified Paleo, the most popular of the Paleo Certification programs certifies products that contain Paleo Diet ingredients, but have some 21st century processing methods allowing for shelf stability. The Paleo Friendly Program allows for products that are generally regarded as gray-area products such as kombucha, dark chocolate, and even grass-fed dairy.
