It really is an exciting time here at seventeen 0 seven. So much is happening. Just a few months ago, we proudly opened the doors of our first London Fitzrovia Cafe Restaurant.
just six months later we are proud to announce the launch of our Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar of Modena.
This is the first article in our 2-part launch journey, where I’ll be writing in detail how we approached each product, plus results.
Lets start with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena,
Traditional balsamic vinegar originates from Modena, Italy, where families have been using the same techniques for generations. Balsamic vinegar is made from pressing and fermenting grapes. It ages in wooden barrels for years, sometimes decades. The longer it ferments, the more intense the flavor becomes and the thicker it gets.
Balsamic vinegar adds lots of flavor to any dish, without packing in too many calories. According to the USDA National Nutrient Database for Standard Reference, balsamic vinegar provides a minimal 5 calories per teaspoon.
-Effects on Cholesterol
Balsamic vinegar is beneficial for stabilizing your blood cholesterol levels. Low-density lipoprotein, or LDL cholesterol, is the harmful cholesterol that blocks arteries, causing hardening and clogging.
-Beneficial for Blood Pressure
Your blood pressure is the amount of force your blood places on arterial walls. In 2006, researchers at Arizona State University looked into vinegar benefits on heart health and published their review in "Medscape General Medicine." Since balsamic vinegar reduces atherosclerosis and hardening of arteries, it can also help normalize your blood pressure levels.
