Another factor that contributes to DÁFNI's outstanding quality is that it is completely unfiltered; it is truly olive oil in its natural state. This unfiltered, natural oil is what the Greeks have used in their everyday lives since ancient times --- for everything from cooking to healing. Olive oil connoisseurs and chefs believe unfiltered olive oil is superior to others due to its rich flavor and higher level of nutrients found in the olive fruit. Filtration diminishes some of the oil’s taste and health benefits. If sediment (harmless olive pulp) is found in the bottle, avoid shaking bottle before pouring.
