Istrian bjelica is a late maturing indigenous variety whose oil is known for its high level of polyphenols, which is up to ten times higher than in other varieties. Polyphenols make this oil exceptionally healthy and rich in antioxidants. This has beneficial effects not only on human health, but also on the oil itself, as antioxidants preserve it from going bad for a long time . Istarska bjelica is indeed a “robust” oil, with very pronounced olive fruitiness and accentuated bitterness. Its taste is very recognizable, reminiscent of green tomatoes , conifer, green leaves and grass.
Food pairing: It pairs well with dishes of pronounced flavours – wild game, grilled meat, mature cheeses, prosciutto and desserts, especially ice cream.
Style: Olive oil
