Extra virgin olive oil is highly appreciated worldwide for its healthy and organoleptic properties. From the variety of compounds present in the oil, phenols stand out, not only for producing the bitter-pungent perception but also for their antioxidant properties, which contribute to human health protection. The addition of plants can change the phenolic profile due to a migration of plant antioxidants to the oil. The aim of this work was to study the evolution of the oxidative process of extra…

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO), a Mediterranean Diet Component, in the Management of Muscle Mass and Function Preservation

This review highlights the main molecular players that control skeletal muscle mass, with particular regard to sarcopenia, and discusses, based on the more recent findings, the potential of EVOO in delaying/preventing loss of muscle mass and function, with the aim of stimulating further research to assess dietary supplementation with EVOO as an approach to prevent or delay sarc Openia in aging individuals.

Effect of Flavorization on Virgin Olive Oil Oxidation and Volatile Profile

The volatile compounds of virgin olive oil (VOO) have an important role from a sensory point of view as they are responsible for the aroma of the oil. Once the oil is obtained, auto-oxidation is the



The oxidative stability of flavoured virgin olive oil: the effect of the water activity of rosemary

Flavoured olive oil gained has importance in terms of its sensorial properties and oxidative stability in recent years. However, the water activity level of the flavouring agent can be important for

Evolution of phenolic compounds in virgin olive oil during storage

Phenolic compounds are of fundamental importance to the shelf life of virgin olive oils because of their antioxidative properties. In this paper, the evolution of simple and complex olive oil phenols

Understanding degradation of phenolic compounds during olive oil processing by inhibitor addition

The aim of this work was to study, under different conditions, degradation of secoiridoids during extraction of extra virgin olive oil by following the effect of ascorbic and citric acid addition.

Characterization of Phenolic Compounds and Their Contribution to Sensory Properties of Olive Oil

The present study provides a comprehensive database of phenolic compounds in olive oils from six different varieties and seven countries to assess their sensory properties and phenolic compound composition.

Veiled Extra Virgin Olive Oils: Role of Emulsion, Water and Antioxidants

This review traces the current knowledge on the effects of various factors and phenomena that occur at interface, and the role of dispersed phase on the physicochemical, sensorial and nutritional

Monitoring the phenolic compounds of Greek extra-virgin olive oils during storage.

As oil blending affects physical, chemical, and sensory characteristics of flavoured olive oils

Extra-virgin olive oils used in the production of flavoured oils can derive from a single cultivar or can be a blend of two or more mono-varietal oils. In order to investigate the effects of the

Changes in phenolic content and antioxidant activity of Italian extra-virgin olive oils during storage.

The phenolic contents and profiles of the various cultivars showed remarkable differences and the phenolic content was strongly correlated with the antioxidant activity measured according to the beta-carotene test and weakly correlation with the radical scavenging ability.
