Our oil has proudly passed the stringent tests of an accredited laboratory, confirming that it not only meets but exceeds the essential benchmarks required to carry the esteemed EFSA health claim. Dive into the details with the certificate we've provided below.

In the heart of the European Union's commitment to public health, Regulation (EU) No. 432/2012 was established, outlining a list of sanctioned health claims for food products. Among these, an exciting authorization stands out for olive oil enthusiasts: the claim that olive oil polyphenols contribute significantly to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress. This is based on human studies that have demonstrated a marked reduction in oxidized low-density lipoprotein (LDL) levels—often referred to as 'bad cholesterol'—following the consumption of virgin olive oil.

To bear this claim, an olive oil must contain no less than 5 mg of hydroxytyrosol and its derivatives for every 20 g of olive oil, which is roughly the amount in one tablespoon. Research indicates that phenolic compounds found in virgin olive oil, such as oleuropein, tyrosol, and hydroxytyrosol, play a key role in these heart-healthy effects. The magic number? A daily intake of 20 g of olive oil meeting these health claim criteria.
