The EU-funded project EUROLIVE: Olive oil is good for you – in more ways than one

Sector: 

Oil & Fat

Category: 

Quality & Safety

Description: 

The EU-funded project EUROLIVE (‘The effect of olive oil consumption on oxidative damage in European populations’) investigated whether there might be other chemical factors contributing to the documented beneficial health effects of olive oil. In particular, project partners, led by researchers at the Mar Institute of Medical Research in Barcelona, wanted to know if olive oil rich in phenolic compounds, such as virgin olive oil, would have particular health benefits beyond those already established for olive oil in general.
