Straub’s is proud to announce that we are the first store in the United States to offer Surat Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Lycopene! Imported from Spain, this oil is infused with lycopene direct from the skins of tomatoes. Exceptionally light and flavorful, this high quality oil is processed naturally with lingering tomato notes. Ingesting Surat plus Lycopene leads to an 85% increase in absorption of this powerful antioxidant versus regular consumption of raw fruits and vegetables. Lycopene is a very natural and potent antioxidant that belongs to the family of carotenoids. It gives the characteristic red color to tomatoes, watermelons, and, in lesser quantity, to other fruits and vegetables. It provides very beneficial properties to our health as it acts by protecting the body cells from oxidative stress:
- Reduced cholesterol levels
- Prevention of cardiovascular diseases
- Prevention of degenerative diseases
- Increased male fertility
- Reduced risk of cancer
A Useful Tip: the natural color of tomatoes is captured in the vibrant orange hue of the oil. Try using it on steaks and other red meats to make a brilliant presentation! Also great for adding a little sheen to a cheese platter, or drizzled over pasta, pizza, and vegetables.
