What Affects the Phenolic Content in Olive Oil?

NATURAL FACTORS

Phenolics vary according to olive variety, time of harvest, soil condition and weather patterns. For example, bio-diversity within the grove adds to the richness of the soil and the nutrition available to the olive fruit.

Rains, drought or winds have greater or lesser impact on phenolic content and amount of olive oil produced depending on when they occur during olive fruit maturation.

ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS

For the Producer

For the Purchaser

Considering that olive oil is, in fact, a juice makes the volatility of the phenolic compounds more understandable. It is for this reason that storage and transportation as key factors in the optimum integrity of high phenolic olive oil.

It has been found that the phenolic content tends to have a preservative affect and drops very little in the space of a year if the olive oil has been properly stored in tanks, sealed (usually with nitrogen) and kept below 16 degrees Celsius prior to bottling. That being said, we don't live in a perfect world and in any case, all data about the natural preservative effect of polyphenols aside, WE WANT OUR OLIVE OIL FRESH FROM HARVEST !

NMR tests of thousands of olive oils at the University of Athens over the past five years indicate that an expected attrition of phenolic content under correct conditions is expected to be between 5 – 20% over a year.

Olive Oil properly stored in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks topped with nitrogen to eliminate contact with oxygen.

It is incumbent upon the producer, as part of quality control to properly store the olive oil, to test the olive oil at time of bottling and provide that information on request – or on the label where allowed by federal agency.

If you are purchasing high phenolic olive oil for its health benefits, then you are taking a daily portion as well as using it liberally in your cooking and food preparation. In this case the oil is being used up quickly, well before the Best Before Date.

However, your care of the olive oil after it is opened is critical to minimize the loss of the phenolic content and preserve the integrity of its health benefit.

Light, heat and air are the enemies of any olive oil. Storing olive oil in a cool dark place will prolong its qualities of extra virginity (acidity) and high phenolic content.

That means store it in small dark bottles 250-1000ml out of the light in a cool/cold place, replace the cap right away after use and don’t leave it by the stove while cooking!

Phenolic compounds will simply evaporate from an open bottle within a short period. If you purchase a large quantity, it is advisable to either store the container in the refrigerator and dispense to serve, or decant from the large container into smaller bottles and store in the refrigerator with the fruit and vegetables.

 

Sometimes the oil solidifies and in this case running warm water over the outside of the bottle for a few moments will usually suffice to 'thaw' out just enough oil to use at that time.
