Aristoleo Awards 2022 Results for Olives

ARISTOLEO AWARDS 2022

HIGH PHENOLIC OLIVES

Olives have only recently been discovered to have enhanced health benefits, despite their high salt content. 

The breakthrough came in 2015. Clinical study on human volunteers who consumed 5 high phenolic olives a day indicated it may contribute to lowering bad cholesterol and maybe even contribute to lowering blood pressure.

"The 60 day study was composed of 20 healthy subjects aged 22-65 not currently on any medication.

After testing 30 types of Greek organic olives, for this study they selected the Kalamata type olives produced by the Sakellaropoulos Family because they were found to contain 5 times higher concentration of hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol than the other commercially available varieties. The organic olives selected for this study contained 1300mg per kg of hydroxytyrosol and 560mg per kg of tyrosol. Daily consumption of only 5 of these olives provides 25mg of hydroxytyrosol and 10 mg of tyrosol. This is significant because, just like EVOO, not all olives are created the same. The key to health benefits of olives and EVOO is the type and amount of phenolic compounds they contain."

 This is the reason we included olives in our annual Aristoleo Awards since 2017. It was a natural extension of the Aristoleo Awards for high phenolic olive oils.

It is not easy to produce table olives with high phenolic content because the debittering process strips the phenolic compound sput of the olives. It needs just the right amount of time and amount of dibittering agents like lemon juice, vinegar, water to hold on to as much of the phenolic compouds as possible. This also produces very tasty and delicious full flavored olives. 

This year a new record was set by Sakellaropouklos of over 3.0 mg of phenolic compounds per 1 gram of olives.
