First Fresh is an exclusive custom blend of three olive varieties, arbequina, manzanilla and ascolano, produced near Corning, California from 19th, 20th and 21st century trees. Each variety lends something special: arbequina's extra fruity aroma; manzanilla's rich, velvety and buttery texture; and despite only 10% of the blend, the spicy, peppery finish from ascolano. This spicy freshness is packed full of heart-kickin' polyphenols/antioxidants and flavor. Adding a bottle of this nectar to your pantry and kitchen table will elevate any healthy lifestyle.
First Fresh is certified extra virgin by the California Olive Oil Council and is kosher certified by KOF-K.org. Bill Sanders is a widely recognized international evangelist for fresh extra virgin olive oil.
