BOHEMIA, N.Y., Aug. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Bellucci Premium, a producer of Italian olive oil, wants consumers to enjoy salads a little more than usual by knowing olive oil may just be the best choice of salad dressing when it comes to absorbing nutrients from the vegetables.

The monounsaturated fats in olive oil have shown to increase the absorption of carotenoids, pigments that are responsible for the bright colors of fruit and vegetables and are connected to a variety of health benefits. Carotenoids may offer protection from cancer and heart disease and promotion of eye health.

Susan Testa, Director of Sales and Marketing for high-quality olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, "Mixing olive oil and salad together make for an incredibly healthy way to absorb antioxidants, and the same goes for other foods you add olive oil to and enjoy."

Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers.  The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
