CERTIFICATE OF ANALYSIS
Oleocanthal 372 mg/Kg
Oleacein 230 mg/Kg
Oleocanthal + Oleacein (index D1) 602 mg/Kg
Ligstroside aglycon (monoaldehyde form) 58 mg/Kg
Oleuropein aglycon (monoaldehyde form) 55 mg/Kg
Ligstroside aglycon (dialdehyde form) ** 369 mg/Kg
Oleuropein aglycon (dialdehyde form) * 200 mg/Kg
Total tyrosol derivatives 798 mg/Kg
Total hydroxytyrosol derivatives 486 mg/Kg
Total phenols analyzed 1.283 mg/Kg
The levels of oleocanthal and oleacein are higher than the avarage values (135 and 105 mg/Kg respectively) of the sample included in the international study performed at the University of California, Davis.
The daily consumption of 20 g of the analyzed olive oil provides 25.7 mg of hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol or their derivatives (>5 mg) and consequently the oil belongs to the category of oils that protect the blood lipids from oxidative stress according to the Regulation 432/2012 of the European Union.
It should be noted that oleocanthal and oleacein present important biological activity and they have benn related with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardioprotective and neuroprotective activity.
