The birth of Pesto is Genoa, Italy and describes the ‘crushing’ of the key ingredients, garlic, basil, salt and Parmesan cheese. While it’s traditionally associated with pasta it will transform meats, vegetables and even grilled fish into gastronomic delights. Our family absolutely loves it over roasted squash, sautéed zucchini, green beans and, of course, it rocks a Caprese salad and your favorite breakfast eggs. Mix it with sour cream or yoghurt for a super sauce over baked brie.
Trace elements are tiny cogs in the working wheels of an efficient immune system. Vitamins are necessary for energy production, immune function, blood clotting and other functions, while minerals play an important role in growth, bone health, fluid balance and several other processes. Small but mighty, these trace vitamins, minerals are only needed in minute amounts to support health and growth, but are often missing from our meals. Getting them from multiple sources ensures that your daily meals are truly health supporting.
BASIL has a long history in Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as Ayurvedic Medicine going back centuries. Basil is from the mint family and is a traditional medicine to treat respiratory and gastrointestinal tract disorders. It is rich in calcium, vitamin A, vitamin K, manganese, magnesium, iron, zinc and potassium. Studies show basil to have antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties lowering the risk of chronic inflammatory conditions such as arthritis, heart disease, and bowel issues.

High Phenolic EVOO used in each Laconiko infused blend is a significant source of micronutrients and polyphenols having antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, cardioprotective, neuroprotective, anticancer, antidiabetic, and antimicrobial properties. It is an excellent source of vitamin E and vitamin K, a good ratio of Omega 6 and Omega 3. Phenolic compounds are also active in promoting healthy gut microbiota by reducing the abundance of pathogenic bacteria, stimulating the growth of beneficial bacteria, and increasing the production of microbially produced short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs).
Internationally award winning for taste, Laconiko Extra Virgin Olive Oil is Aristoleo-DataLok Certified High Phenolic. The phenolic content accounts for the pungent taste which causes a peppery sensation in the throat.
