Bad news for olive oil consumers

The latest issue of German test magazine “Ökotest” provides unpleasant olive oil test results.
Out of 20 tested extra virgin olive oils (including 12 organic olive oils), only 2 are rated as good. 9 oils are rated poor or insufficient. Problems the test reveals range from average to bad sensory quality to impurities with mineral oil residues.

Once more this shows that holistic quality control of olive oil products for the retail and specialized trade is an important tool for the protection of the own credibility, but even more for the protection of the consumer interests.
We offer our customers a complete assessment of their olive oil samples via NIR spectroscopy. This includes a sensory profile, indications of defects and falsifications, fatty acid distribution, as well as information on origin and a recommended best before date.
