The power of the countries bordering the Mediterranean is characterized by certain basic principles:

    • Plenty of consumption of cereals, vegetables, fruits, garlic, onion and spices
    • Frequent consumption of nuts, legumes, yogurt and cheese
    • Regular weekly consumption of fish
    • Reduced consumption of white meat and eggs
    • Reduced consumption of sugar and red meat

The foundations of the Mediterranean diet

Olive oil as the main dietary fat

Olive oil is the main dietary fat of the Mediterranean diet: for example replaces the use of butter in cooking.

Olive oil is known since ancient times: the Phoenicians, Berbers, Romans and Greeks used it for cooking and cosmetics. The Jews used it to turn on the lights.

Although olive oil is more resistant to heat than other oils, should not be cooked at a temperature higher than 210 ° because deteriorates.

To obtain 1 liter of olive oil you must squeeze from 4 to 10 kg of olives (depending on variety). Every second in the world are produced about 86 liters of olive oil. In 2007, world production of olive oil has reached 2.72 million tons, according to FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations).

The Mediterranean countries produce 98% of the olive oil. Spain, Greece and Italy alone produces 75% of the olive oil world.

Abundant use of fruits and vegetables

In the feeding of the countries of the Mediterranean (excluding France and Cyprus), about 50% of energy is of vegetable origin. The fruits and vegetables are mostly eaten fresh.
