Grape Syrup from Oleosophia is made from grape must and called petimezi in Greek, and is a healthy sugar substitute and natural sweetener. Distilled from pure Corinthian grape juice, petimezi retains precious reservatrol, the naturally-occurring powerful antioxident found in grapes & wine. In ancient times, this grape syrup was used to strengthen the immune system and treat anemia and it's no wonder why - petimezi is rich in antioxidants like reservatrol, vitamins A, C, & D, and trace minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium & iron. Similar to molasses in consistency, Oleosophia's Grape Syrup has a fragrant aroma and rich flavor, with an acerbic aftertaste that makes it a great sugar alternative in both sweet and savory dishes. Try it in salad dressings, to glaze meats and as a yogurt & ice cream topping.
HOW TO USE IT
We love petimezi as a healthy alternative to sugar, an all-natural sweetener that enhances sweet & savory dishes alike. We use it in baking as a sugar substitute (Greek moustokoulora cookies are a classic!), drizzle it over cheese for a sweetly-savory flavor, mix it with olive oil & lemon for a flavorful dressing. We even pour it over roasted meats as a rich glazing. Try it for breakfast, mixed into your tea, morning bowls and as a yogurt or ice cream topping.

This unique EVOO, made with early harvest Manaki olives, is the best choice for olive oil enthusiasts looking for a limited-edition, hand-picked product. Experience the goodness of healthy sugar substitutes like grape must syrup and elevate your Greek recipes!
We chose Oleosophia because of the family's commitment to stay with the cultivation of the unique Manaki olive and not give in to a mass-production business model. We especially appreciate Marianna Devetzoglou's passion for helping people understand the power & complexity of Greek olive oil, which is so often underestimated.
