Grown in the Southern hemisphere in Australia, these Barnea olives are an Israeli variety originally from Kadesh-Barnea, a place in the south of Ancient Israel. Barnea olives produce herbaceous tasting oils with notes of sweet almonds and sometimes green banana. Some of the best Barnea extra virgin olive oils come from Australia, where olive cultivation and oil production have been perfected, and our Australian Barnea is a terrific example.
In addition to the mild flavor, the low fatty acids and peroxide levels make Barnea olive oil ideal for baking.

Polyphenols have been shown to function as both antioxidants and as anti-inflammatory nutrients in the body. The very number and variety of polyphenols in olive oil helps explain the unique health benefits of this culinary oil. Because of the high polyphenol levels, as little as 1-2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil per day have been shown to be associated with significant anti-inflammatory benefits.
