ELEONES Early Harvest 2016/17. One of the healthiest olive oils in the world (28/12/2016)
The ELEONES team is in the pleasant position to announce the results of the NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) test that was
conducted on the ELEONES Early Harvest 2016/17.
Following the award of the Silver standard of Excellence for High Phenolic Extra Virgin Olive Oil for the ELEONES Early Harvest 2015/16 (read more here) the ELEONES team worked closely with its cooperators in order to maintain and if possible exceed last year’s results.
The NMR results (No461/2016 of 22/12/2016) for ELEONES Early Harvest 2016/17 showed an overall D3 score of the analyzed compounds of 605mg/Kg. According to the test report, this number is 4.5 times higher than the average values of the samples included in the international study performed by the University of California, Davis.
The report also indicates: “It should be noted that oleocanthal and oleacein present important biological activity and they have been related with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardioprotective and neuroprotective activity.
Daily consumption of 20 gr of ELEONES Early Harvest offers 12.1 mg (>5 mg) of hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol derivatives and consequently the olive oil sample belongs to the oil category that protect the blood lipids from oxidative stress, according to the EU regulation 432/2012.”
As in any business, maintaining a high level of quality over time for a product is a prerequisite in order to make it to today’s competitive international market. Many businesses tend to underestimate the importance of stable quality over time for brand building.
For a natural product like the ELEONES olive oil the level of complexity in the processes involved in the creation of high quality olive oil is exponentially greater, compared to industrial products where more or less all different quality related variables are controlled.
The ELEONES team is extremely happy and grateful to its cooperators (farmers, mill, agriculturists) that is in a position to offer for yet another year an authentic Greek product of such quality to its customers around the world.
