Remarkable Polyphenols Values
[ POLYPHENOLS ] Our latest lab tests show Polyphenol values of 692 mg/kg. Here’s why this is remarkable: Polyphenols give olive oil its unique taste, improve its shelf life, and have been associated with lower incidence of cancer and coronary heart disease. A phenol count of less than 120 (as expressed by mg/kg) is considered low. Virgin oils with a phenol count between 120 and 220 are considered medium. Olive oils with a count above 220 are considered high in Polyphenols. Some of the more intense extra virgin olive oils will contain levels of 350 or higher.
