Which Olive Oil has the Most Oleocanthal?

Oleocanthal: Powerful Antioxidant!!

The Beneficial Effects of Consuming High Oleocanthal EVOO has helped many prevent cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) intake is associated with reduced cardiovascular risk, and its phenolic compound Oleocanthal has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.


Discovered by US Scientist 

Dr. Gary Beauchamp after visiting the Island of Sicily and noticing the peppery kick in the back of his throat, he went on to research why that Sicilian EVOO had that characteristic. 

The Peppery kick is Oleocanthal, a polyphenol that is only found in High Quality Olive Oil.


Oleocanthal is 1 of 33 types of Polyphenols found in EVOO.

And it has Tremendous Super Powers!

It is recommended to look for a Polyphenol Lab Analysis that shows Oleocanthal to be more than 100 mg/kg of Oleocanthal. (source)   

The Total Polyphenols for an EVOO should be 500mg or Higher. The reason being any low amount wont produce the healthful results we are looking for, basically being ineffective. This is why its important to consume an EVOO with a minimum of 500mg/kg of Polyphenols and 100mg minimum of Oleocanthal.
