in the meantime here is a sneak peek of what’s to come:
Welcome to ARISTOIL – We are dedicated to the research and the promotion of High Phenolic Olive Oil for Health.
For producers & consumers alike ARISTOIL website will provide the basis for delivering a consistently high quality high phenolic olive oil. We will present the latest research here first along with interviews with the world experts in their fields.
ARISTOIL: “Reinforcement of Mediterranean olive oil sector competitiveness through development and application of innovative production and quality control methodologies related to olive oil health protecting properties”
The goal is to create a cluster of well educated olive growers who are able to consistently produce high phenolic olive oil that conforms or surpasses the 432/2012 EU Health claim labeling regulation for polyphenols. This cluster will expand to include olive growers from 5 countries Greece, Cyprus, Croatia, Italy and Spain. We will implement a strict protocol all along the supply chain integration for handling and storing this new category of extra virgin olive oil for health.
We will certify the olive oil for phenolic concentrations using the advanced analytical tools such as the NMR (Nuclear Magnetic Resonance) and LC-MS/MS (Liquid Chromatography and Mass Spectrometer), We will also certify the bottling facilities, warehousing, transportation companies, restaurants, hotels, and the retail or online outlets to ensure the high phenolic content is maintained throughout the supply chain.
“We are only as strong as our weakest link.”
