You don’t have to be Italian to love olive oil and vinegar on almost everything. Some people even drink it straight out of the bottle. Now you can too, only it’s a little sweeter this time around.

Olitalia, a world-renowned oil and vinegar company, now sells their Italian-made Drink Vinegar and Trenta +30 Extra Virgin Olive Oil locally on Long Island at North Shore Farms.

Available in three fruity flavors—cherry, blueberry and pomegranate—Drink Vinegar is the only balsamic-based apple cider drinkable vinegar, flavored naturally without sugar.

“Now Olitalia Drink Vinegars combine the benefits of drinking vinegar with a flavorful, refreshing, easy to drink way,” said Brad Biederman, president of Acme Imports, the company that imports Olitalia to the United States. “Don’t dread taking in health benefits anymore. Pour it into a water bottle and bring it to the gym, have some after a heavy meal, make a morning routine out of it.”

Drink Vinegar also contains “the mother,” which is essentially apple cider vinegar that still maintains the culture of beneficial bacteria. Apple cider vinegar has long been used as a digestive aid, but it also helps to balance blood sugar, blood pressure, maintain heart health and revitalize skin. Try these flavored vinegars diluted in water, as a salad dressing or mixed in smoothies or cocktails.

As for the Italian olive, it stars front and center in Trenta +30 Olive Oil, which is packed with 30 percent more natural antioxidants (polyphenols) than any other oil. Polyphenols have been proven to improve metabolism, prevent and reduce disease and increase the presence of beneficial bacteria in the body.

Visit your local North Shore Farms to grab some vinegar for your salad and some olive oil for your bread and enjoy a meal with more delicious health benefits.
