What are Polyphenols?
Polyphenols are regarded for health promoting properties and are found in our extra virgin olive oil. The phenolic compounds unique to olive oil that only occur during the malaxation process. There are 36 known phenolic compounds in olive oil. The two most widely researched for their health protective benefits are Oleocanthal and Oleacein which are known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The presence of Oleocanthal is indicated by the peppery effect. Oleacein is known by the bitterness on the tongue. For people accustomed to purchasing olive oils from the super market, these characteristics of pepperiness and bitterness are often mistaken as a defect in the olive oil.
