The Mediterranean Diet is a cultural, historical, social, territorial and environmental heritage. It is a lifestyle that allows you to keep alive the traditions, both cultural and eating well. It is characterized by the abundance of fruits, vegetables, legumes, cereals and nuts, the usage of olive oil, the frequent consumption of fish, the moderate consumption of dairy derivate and the low consumption of red meat and simple sugars. Many scientific studies clearly demonstrate the health benefits of Mediterranean Diet.
The Mediterranean Diet has recently been recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible Cultural Heritage, a decision that reinforces the goal to set it as a lifestyle reference.
