Analytics Controlled chemical parameters, certificates and professional tastings.
To be able to label an oil as extra virgin olive oil, it is necessary to comply with a series of physical, chemical and sensory analyzes.
The European Community gives the classification parameters for olive oils in REGULATION (EC) Nº. 2568/91 OF THE COMMISSION of 11 November 2003, on the characteristics of olive oils and olive-pomace oils and on their methods of analysis.
Extra virgin olive oil is considered a very important product in the Mediterranean diet due to its nutritional properties. It contains oleic acid (mono unsaturated), linoleic (omega-6, omega3) as polyunsaturated. It is a product recommended for its level of natural antioxidants (vitamin E) and amount of polyphenols. All of them very beneficial for health.
