A New Ultra Rapid Screening Method for Olive Oil Health Claim Evaluation Using Selective Pulse NMR Spectroscopy

  title={A New Ultra Rapid Screening Method for Olive Oil Health Claim Evaluation Using Selective Pulse NMR Spectroscopy},
  author={Eleni Melliou and Prokopios Magiatis and K. Brian Killday},
One of the most important constituents of olive oil is the secoiridoid polyphenolic derivatives which present an increasing potential for health protection. The European Union legislation based on the scientific opinion of EFSA has permitted specific health claims related to the levels of specific phenolic compounds found in olive oil (5 mg per 20 g dose or 250 mg/kg). The key compounds that are responsible for the recognized health claim “protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress” are… Expand

NMR Spectroscopy: A Powerful Tool for the Analysis of Polyphenols in Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
An overview of the major developments in the structural elucidation of polyphenol compounds in EVOO is provided, including identified and quantified Flavonoids, lignans, secoiridoids and phenolic acids and alcohols in EVs. Expand
Direct determination of phenolic secoiridoids in olive oil by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-triple quadruple mass spectrometry analysis
Analytical standards of phenolic secoiridoids have been used to develop a quantitative and rapid analytical method by UHPLC-MS/MS, in which sample extraction is not carried out, and the generation of artefacts such as acetals and hemiacetals of the aldehydic forms is highly reduced. Expand
NMR spectroscopy in conjugation with multivariate statistical analysis for distinguishing plant origin of edible oils
Abstract NMR spectroscopy in combination with multivariate statistical analysis provides the promising feasibility for discriminating food origins. In this study, this technique was successfullyExpand
Direct study of minor extra-virgin olive oil components without any sample modification. 1H NMR multisupression experiment: A powerful tool.
1H NMR was employed to study monovarietal commercial Spanish extra-virgin olive oils, identifying for the first time those of the protons of esters of phytol and of geranylgeraniol. Expand
Influence of Harvest Time and Malaxation Conditions on the Concentration of Individual Phenols in Extra Virgin Olive Oil Related to Its Healthy Properties
The quantitative analysis of the olive oil samples with NMR showed that the total phenolic content has a negative correlation with the ripening degree and the malaxation time, which may explain the discrepancies reported from previous studies. Expand
Effect of Processing on Phenolic Composition of Olive Oil Products and Olive Mill By-Products and Possibilities for Enhancement of Sustainable Processes
The bio-functional properties of olive oil products and by-products rely greatly on the proportions and types of the endogenous phenolics that may favorably/unfavorably change during variousExpand
Oleocanthal-rich extra-virgin olive oil enhances donepezil effect by reducing amyloid-β load and related toxicity in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease.
Investigation of the consumption of EVOO rich with oleocanthal as a medical food on enhancing the effect of donepezil on attenuating Aβ load and related toxicity in 5xFAD mouse model of AD showed that EVOO consumption in combination withdonepezil significantly reduced Aβ Load and related pathological changes.
