A New Source Opens to Shop for Healthy Oils

The new Olives store has opened at 34940 Emerald Coast Parkway, Suite 187, in Destin, with a selection of high-quality, certified pure olive oils, as well as flavor-infused oils and many balsamic vinegar varieties. “These olive oils also have more antioxidants than those you find at the grocery store,” says co-owner Dar Zook. “The average olive oil has a concentration of about 100 parts per million antioxidants, and ours start at 158, while our highest has 495!”

Each oil selection includes a wealth of information, such as country of origin, crush date (to guarantee freshness) and polyphenol and free fatty acid levels, as well as oleic acid and peroxide content. Each product gets an in-depth description of its flavor, but shoppers are encouraged to sample the oils before they buy.

Zook and co-owner Gina Seton started the business because they believe in the importance of the quality of what we put into our bodies, and stock only the highest quality ingredients. Gift baskets are available.
