List of popular ingredients of the Mediterranean diet

The fact that the Mediterranean diet is healthy has been written many times. Scientists are systematically conducting various studies on the effects of this diet on human organisms. In recent weeks, the results of studies have been published, the subject of which was the impact of the Mediterranean diet on the level of sugar in the blood.

The results suggest that the Mediterranean diet improves glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes. Compared to the control group, the subjects showed a reduction in fasting glucose, a reduction in body mass index (BMI) and cholesterol levels. At the same time, a drop in blood pressure was observed.

So what do the Greeks eat that their diet works in such a beneficial way? It is known that the most effective combination of these components that interact with each other creates new compounds that positively affect organisms. Below you will find a list of products that form the basis of the Mediterranean diet:

  1. Olive oil is the basis of the Mediterranean diet. In Greece used everywhere and for everything. Its pro-health properties are already widely known. Greek olive oil is one of the best and this is confirmed by many awards and distinctions gained at various competitions.
  2. Dried oregano - one of the most popular herbs, and at the same time one of the richest sources of antioxidants, so it's worth to include it in your daily diet and use it for seasoning dishes.

  4. Garlic is the same benefits, because it not only protects the heart and has anti-cancer properties, but also perfectly highlights the taste of dishes.

  7. Sardines and anchovies - these small fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which protect the heart, maintain adequate blood sugar levels and protect the joints. Although this ingredient of Greek cuisine is not low-fat, it should be borne in mind that it is a rich source of calcium and vitamin D. They are healthy in any form, both marinated, fried, dried or baked.

Limitations in the harvest of herbs in Crete

Limitations in the harvest of herbs in Crete

The applicable legal regulations introduce restrictions on the maximum weight of dried plants harvested by a single person. The directive (DAD ΒΛ45ΟΡ1Θ-ΥΡ9) issued by the Forestry Office and valid until 2018 specifies this value as 500 g of dried for individual use. Such restrictions are primarily to counteract excessive exploitation of natural vegetation, which is now too much depleted in many places.

On the Internet you will find a lot of articles about the quality of oil and its health properties. This is a topic that has been very well developed by many researchers. Recently, however, Greek and American scientists have decided to devote more attention to olives themselves, ie the fruit of the Olea europe tree. The results of their research show that, depending on the method of processing used, olives retain different levels of valuable antioxidants.

Eliama Gold - Cretan gold

One of the biggest novelties that have appeared on the Polish market in the last two years are polyphenol oils originating in Crete and Greece. Last year, we wrote about them twice, but they are still little-known and recognizable products in Poland. For us, this topic has become very interesting, so we decided to look at it even closer. Therefore, we publish further information on polyphenol oils, focusing mainly on the excellent oil Eliama Gold produced by Elli's Farm in Crete.
