Mahram olive oil is a pure product of fresh olives, which having antioxidant and anti-cancer substances, has a unique flavor and high nutritional value. Virgin and extra-virgin olive oil is olive oil that is extracted only by physical processes and no chemical process is used in its production.
The earliest surviving olive oil amphorae date to 3500 BC (Early Minoan times), though the production of olive oil is assumed to have started before 4000 BC. The oil became a principal product of the Minoan civilization, where it is thought to have represented wealth. The oil was derived through hand-squeezing the berries and stored in special containers under guard of the priests.
