Health Benefits of TRUE Extra Virgin Olive Oil are part of the PJ KABOS story
PJ KABOS was founded by James Panagiotopoulos (PJ). James’ personal olive groves are trees lovingly planted
by his father and grandparents over half a century ago. These and neighboring olive groves in the surrounding area
of the historic, Ancient Olympia, Greece, produce the precious olive nectar of PJ KABOS. James' grandmother,
Mrs. Maria Panagiotopoulou, lived to the age of 103 and is perhaps one of the best indicators for longevity for the
health benefits of the Mediterranean diet. Our Extra Virgin Olive Oil was a big part of her Mediterranean diet, as
her family of six consumed upward of 400 Liters per year!

What are the recommended uses of PJ KABOS "Family Reserve Organic"?
This product is exceptionally special to taste on its own, or poured directly over salads and for use in dressings.
Can I cook at high heat with PJ KABOS "Family Reserve Organic"?
Yes, and in-fact it is best to cook with a high quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil because it is exactly this high quality
that protects the oil and food from degradation due to high heat cooking! Because of our product's premium quality
(high in monounsaturated fatty acids, antioxidants and with very low acidity, among its many virtues) it boosts a
very high smoke point of > 204°C (which is one of the highest smoke-points for an unrefined oil), and is
perfect for most high temperature cooking needs, including:
We do not offer, retail, our signature "Reserve" labels in containers larger than 16.9floz.
Here are the most important reasons:
Quality: Once a larger container is opened it takes longer before the contents are fully consumed and so the quality greatly deteriorates due to oxidation from the container being opened (Extra Virgin Olive Oil's biggest enemies that affect shelf-life are heat, oxygen and light). This is why it is best to purchase Extra Virgin Olive Oil in small containers that also protect the content from light (tins or painted/dark bottles).
Transportation durability: Small containers are more durable during transportation.
Ease of storage: It is a whole lot easier to store a smaller container in a cupboard than a large one.
Ease of use: A smaller container is easier to handle, especially while cooking. Have you ever tried pouring olive oil on a salad from a 1 gallon container? :)
Gift idea: By having many smaller containers instead of 1 large, one always has great gifts on-hand to give away at any time and can even share with family & friends (maybe after that successful dinner-party)!
The best solution for larger quantity needs? Multi-packs! These offer the best of both worlds, unbeatable quality and great value for money.
