Olive Polyphenol Innovation Meets Tradition

A Bridge Between Innovation and Tradition

Drawing from the richness of Mediterranean tradition, we introduce a revolutionary range of seed oils enriched with polyphenols extracted from olive oil, combining the nutritional benefits of vegetable oils with the extraordinary health properties of polyphenols.

The New Frontier of Wellness

The Mediterranean diet is widely recognized for its health-promoting qualities, incorporating a balance of nutrients and offering sustained health advantages. Central to this diet is extra virgin olive oil (EVOO), which is not only high in unsaturated fatty acids but also rich in phytonutrients such as polyphenols. These polyphenols are known for their broad spectrum of therapeutic benefits, including their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, neuroprotective, cardioprotective, anticancer, anti-obesity, antidiabetic, antimicrobial, and anti-steatotic properties. Among these, oleocanthal and oleacein are notably potent in contributing to the health benefits attributed to EVOO.

Capitalizing on our proprietary technology, we have developed a cutting-edge method to fortify seed oils with polyphenols extracted from EVOO. This proprietary process not only boosts the health properties of these oils but also allows for precise customization to meet specific dietary requirements and health goals. By enriching seed oils with polyphenols, we expand the accessibility and benefits of these powerful compounds, seamlessly integrating the health-promoting attributes of EVOO with the convenience and cost-effectiveness of seed oils.

Enriching seed oils with polyphenols elevates these oils to functional food status, imbuing them with additional health benefits. Our proprietary technology enables us to infuse seed oils with a precise quantity of polyphenols -expressed in mg/kg – to enhance their nutritional value cost-effectively. This makes enriched seed oils a viable and healthier alternative to traditional oils, catering to consumers who might prefer something different from EVOO due to cost considerations or personal dietary preferences.

Polyphenols are potent antioxidants known for their ability to combat oxidative stress and inflammation, which are crucial in the development of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer, and neurodegenerative disorders. Specifically, compounds like oleocanthal and oleacein in polyphenol-enriched oils offer remarkable health benefits:

  • Oleocanthal: Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, which are comparable to those of ibuprofen but without the side effects associated with long-term NSAID use. It also shows anticancer potential by affecting cell proliferation, metastasis, and inducing apoptosis in various cancer cell lines, including those of colon, prostate, and breast cancers.

  • Oleacein: It has notable cardioprotective effects. Oleacein helps prevent atherosclerosis by reducing LDL oxidation and inhibiting the adhesion of monocytes to the vascular endothelium, crucial steps in the development of this vascular disease.

By integrating these polyphenols into seed oils, we leverage their health benefits while ensuring the product remains affordable and accessible, aligning with market demands and consumer health goals.

Health Enhancement: Consumers are increasingly drawn to products that actively contribute to their health. Polyphenol-enriched seed oils offer a potent combination of the well-known health benefits of polyphenols—such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and disease-preventing properties—with the nutritional value of seed oils. This synergy boosts the overall health appeal of seed oils, making them a preferred choice for health-conscious consumers.

Disease Prevention: Polyphenols are celebrated for their role in preventing chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. By incorporating polyphenols into seed oils, manufacturers are able to offer a product that not only enhances everyday cooking but also contributes to long-term health benefits. This is particularly attractive to consumers looking to improve or maintain their health through diet.

Versatility and Accessibility: While extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is renowned for its polyphenol content, it can be expensive and not always accessible. Polyphenol-enriched seed oils provide a versatile and more affordable alternative that fits seamlessly into various culinary applications—from cooking and frying to salad dressings—making it an attractive option for both consumers and manufacturers.

Consumer Demand for Functional Foods: There is a growing demand for functional foods that provide health benefits beyond basic nutrition. Polyphenol-enriched seed oils meet this demand by offering added health benefits in a familiar format. This makes it easier for consumers to integrate these health benefits into their daily diet without having to significantly alter their eating habits.
