The unique characteristics below contribute to the phenolic process and creation of 7Thirty Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
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 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, known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
The peppery effect indicates the presence of Oleocanthal. Oleacein is known for its bitterness on the tongue. For people accustomed to purchasing olive oils from the supermarket, these characteristics of pepperiness and bitterness are often mistaken as a defect in the olive oil.
