Anchovies in organic olive oil
We prepare our anchovies in organic olive oil using traditional methods. Matured in barrels for a minimum period of 6 months and individually filleted with a razor blade to be packed in organic olive oil. The Basque Council for Organic Agriculture and Food (ENEEK) endorses this product.
Once opened, in order to maintain all its full flavor for up to five days, it is important to keep the anchovies in the refrigerator, preferably covered and submerged in olive oil, adding more if necessary.
Anchovies hold a special place of honor in the kitchen, not only because of their delicious flavor and versatility, but also because they have a number of unique properties:
- High biological value protein source.
- High content of OMEGA 3 fatty acids, which our body does not generate by itself.
- Rich in vitamins A, D, E and K, which help strengthen the immune system.
In this case it is in extra virgin organic olive oil, rich in oleic acid that helps regulate harmful levels of cholesterol in the blood.
A natural balance
Millions of years before we coined the word ‘sustainability’, the planet had already taken care of achieving a balance in which everything flowed naturally. At Conservas Ortiz we have learned that it is best to interfere as little as possible with these natural rhythms. We are committed to traditional fishing techniques, age-old production methods and quality raw materials, such as the organically certified olive oil we use in our organic range.
