Health Benefits of Kasandrinos Olive Oil
The health benefits of our olive oil begins with the hand picked, single sourced organic olives. Kasandrinos Olive Oil is an ultra premium product. The oil is nutrient-dense and packed with benefits.
Olive oil is rich in monounsaturated fats, which are widely known as healthy fats with a number of health benefits, including promoting heart and cardiovascular health."
Olive oil is packed with free-radical-fighting antioxidants, which may reduce your risk of chronic disease and help fight inflammation.
Systemic inflammation is at the root of most autoimmune and chronic disease states. Monounsaturated fats and antioxidants help lower inflammation and are associated with lower levels of chronic illness.
Olive oil is perhaps one of the best-studied foods for heart health, supporting healthy cholesterol levels, and helping to maintain blood pressure levels already within normal ranges."

Studies suggest that diets high in olive oil may improve cognition and can even protect against amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
Balances Blood Sugar*
Several studies link olive oil to more balanced blood sugar and insulin sensitivity. One study even linked an olive oil-rich diet to a 40% decrease in your risk for getting type 2 diabetes.
Why Kasandrinos Extra Virgin Olive Oil?
We make our single-source olive oil the same way our ancestors did: handpicked from old world trees pressed in small batches. Here’s how Kasandrinos is different.
The quality of any olive oil starts on the tree. Most of our trees are hundreds of years old, which means more flavorful, nutrient-dense fruit. Only USDA Organic Koroneiki and Athinolia olives are used.
With Kasandrinos, you’ll always know exactly when and where your olive oil was made. That means better tasting, nutrient-dense oil for you and your family. Our Kasandrinos is PGI (Protected Geographic Indicator) Certified.
We only sell olive oil from this year’s harvest or first cold pressed olive oil to maintain freshness, taste, and a high antioxidant profile in every bottle. Every bottle has a harvest date, production date, lot number and 24 month expression date printed on every label.
Every batch of Kasandrinos olive oil gets tested at two independent 3rd party labs, one in the EU and another in the US.

For us, olive oil isn’t just a heart-healthy kitchen essential. Every bottle of Kasandrinos olive oil is a piece of our homeland, made with economic stability, environmental sustainability, and your health in mind.
Great meals cannot be great without the best ingredients.
We love people who take pride in what they cook and share the way we take pride in our time honored tradition of producing and sharing the worlds best olive oil.
INTRODUCING THE BEST OLIVE OIL TO THE
Greeks know how to party. And our love language is always food and quality time. So when co-founder Tony Kasandrinos would move to a new city, he always brought his family’s olive oil along. And Tony moved a lot in his 22-year career as an active-duty Marine. Back in 2012, he started gifting bottles to friends at a local CrossFit gym, and they were hooked. Everyone agreed: you couldn’t find olive oil like this in the United States. At the same time, Tony realized just how many olive oil brands were cut with other oils or made from poor-quality olives. With the encouragement of friends and family, Tony and his sister Effi decided to bring a little bit of Greece over to America, and Kasandrinos was formed.

A GREEK FAMILY TRADITION
Olive oil has been a central part of the Kasandrinos family for generations. Kasandrinos babies are baptized with the oil from our family’s land. It’s so much a part of our lives that we never realized most people in the U.S. have been drizzling stale olive oil on their food for decades. In Greece, it’s customary to grow and press your own olive oil for extended family and friends. So, even after moving to the U.S., our family made sure to bring enough olive oil back to enjoy until the next trip back to our family home in Niata, Greece
A GROWING COMMUNITY THATS NOT SLOWING
With Kasandrinos, we took a leap of faith that people stateside would care about the quality of their olive oil. And we were right. More and more health-enthusiasts and foodies started tasting and feeling the difference from our single-origin, small-batch, organic oil. Since then, the team has grown to include our cousin Efrosyni as the Creative Director. We’ve expanded to sell on Amazon. And we’re still proud to sell every bottle of olive oil and vinegar directly to you. No middleman. No bottles sitting on shelves for months. Just fresh, single-origin oil and vinegar, from our family to yours.
CULTURE AND TRADITION DELIVERED TO YOUR TABLE
The products we bring to your table are more than just food. They’re from the land our family has tended for generations. It’s the olive oil we were raised with. The foods that bring us together. We hope that you’ll taste the care that goes into every bottle. From hand-picking the olives to crushing, bottling, and shipping in a way that nurtures the land and the people who tend it. And most of all, we hope Kasandrinos can bring you a little bit of the country we love to your family’s table.
