Qualities of our high polyphenol EVOO
The qualities of our oil include more than 1500 milligrams of polyphenols per kilogram of oil, which is at least five to ten times more than average olive oil.
High polyphenol olive oils are special due to their high levels of polyphenols, which are natural antioxidants. These polyphenols provide several health benefits, such as reducing inflammation, improving heart health, and lowering the risk of certain diseases. They also contribute to the flavor and taste of the olive oil, giving it a distinctive, robust taste that sets it apart from other types of olive oil. Additionally, high polyphenol olive oils have a longer shelf life, meaning they can be stored for a longer period of time without losing their quality and taste.
These summer oils are always green, as they contain a high amount of chlorophyll, which is also therapeutic.
The European Union (EU) allows the use of three health claims related to olive oil that are scientifically supported and authorized. These claims include the following:
- Olive oil helps maintain normal blood cholesterol levels.
- Olive oil contributes to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress.
- Olive oil helps maintain normal blood pressure levels.
These claims are authorized under EU Regulation 432/2012 on nutrition and health claims made on foods. However, it is important to note that these claims do not imply a direct causal relationship between the consumption of olive oil and improved health outcomes. They are simply statements based on current scientific evidence that may contribute to better health outcomes when consumed as part of a balanced and healthy diet.
