An excellent reference for correct nutrition is the Tuscan Food Pyramid, a project of our Region that indicates the correct proportions of foods that should never be missing from our diet.

At the second level of the PAT there is extra virgin olive oil which, in addition to being one of the major ambassadors of Tuscany in the world, has beneficial virtues in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, tumors, hypertension, diabetes and some diseases of the skin.
