150 - 170 mg/kg

About Polyphenol:
Polyphenols are natural antioxidants. The Sommariva Extra Virgin Olive oil is cold pressed within 48 hours from the harvesting of the olives, so that the acidity level is low and Polyphenols are intact. With the variety of Olives in Liguria, which is the Taggiasca, a maximum of 170mg/kg of Polyphenols can be reached.

The olives are harvested from October to December and the Polyphenol value can vary from 170 to 140 (higher level in October, lower level in December), but let’s say that the average value is around 150.

Northern Italy EVOO never reach the values that can be found in oils from more south of Italy, but this can be seen also as a good thing because the Ligurian olive oil is not as bitter and spicy as those olive oils from more south.

The more Polyphenols they contain, the stronger the taste.

The Ligurian olive oil has a good value of Polyphenols but in comparison it is lighter and milder than the ones from more south of Italy and can be used on all dishes without covering the taste.
