Only a small fraction of the Extra Virgin Olive Oils produced in the Mediterranean contain phenolic compounds.
Strakka’s High Phenolic Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil is a new product that represents an emerging category of early harvest olive oil that is rich in phenolic content and its an EU health claim for enhanced health protective properties.
This category is identi¬ed by the Health Claim (Commission Regulation (EU) 432/2012) and is associated to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recognizing olive oil polyphenols, including the compounds oleocanthal and oleacein, as having anti-in ammatory and anti-oxidant properties. This Regulation can be applied only to olive oil containing at least 250mg of polyphenols per 1kg of olive oil.
Strakka’s early harvest organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil its this health claim for polyphenol concentration and is being introduced for the growing market of informed and health-conscious individuals looking for both organic and natural foods with proven health protective properties.
