The highest concentrations of the natural antioxidants hydroxytyrosol and tyrosol that have been detected to date in commercial samples of edible olives from around the world, up to 7 times above the average, were found during the examination conducted by the Department of Pharmacy Of the University of Athens in the products of  Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms.

The nine commercial types of organic table olives of Sakellaropoulos Organic Farms, of Kalamata variety, grown in their organic olive groves in Sparta, were subjected to specialized analyzes.

Hydroxytyrosol, one of the most powerful natural antioxidants, has been officially recognized by Regulation 432/2012, by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), as protecting lipids of blood from oxidation, a damage known to affect cardiovascular health and a number of other diseases, provided that its daily intake is greater than 5mg.

The results are as follows:


KALAMON 394 - 869

PINELIES 434 - 532
PRASINES 672 - 1617
LEMONENIES 497 - 571
AGOUROELIES 397 - 1043

Note that the olives analyzed are completely commercial samples while these results are up to 7 times higher than the general average in tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol content of all commercial olive samples (average in tyrosol is 134 μg / g and in hydroxytrosol 244 μg / g).
