Traditional mediterranean diet and olive oil

The Mediterranean diet is a centuries-old tradition that contributes to excellent health, provides a sense of pleasure and well being and forms a vital part of the world’s collective cultural heritage. Increasingly, scientific evidence suggests that there are positive health benefits from diets which are high in fruits, vegetables, legumes and whole grains. These diets also include fish, nuts, low-fat dairy products and fat, from predominantly vegetable oils, which are low in saturated fats and partially hydrogenated oils. Olive oil is the principal source of fat in the traditional Mediterranean diet.
