Acidity 0.40% 0.16%
Peroxides Maximum of 20 allowed 5
Polyphenols 200 554
To be classified as extra virgin, the olive oil must have an acidity level of less than 0.80%. This is a measure of the freshness and quality of the olives that were used. The peroxide value of the oil must be < 20 meq/kg. This is a measure of oxidation, and a high peroxide value indicates that an olive oil will become rancid more quickly.
Polyphenols are the anti-oxidants that are said to help prevent cancer, arteriosclerosis and slow down the ageing process, they are present in olive oil and protect the oil, extending its life. The more polyphenols the oil contains the longer it lasts, the more its' flavour is retained and the healthier it is for you! Quality olive oils contain at least 200 polyphenols, our oil has 554!
