SILVER AWARD AT OLYMPIA HEALTH & NUTRITION AWARDS 2018

On May 17 2018, at the Old Parliament, the Olympia Health & Nutrition Awards 2018 took place.

The University of Athens, with the nonprofit organization World Olive Center for Health, awards the producers that have managed to produce olive oils with health claim, based on the European Reg. 432/2012.

This European Regulation mentions that more than 5 mg of tyrosol and hydroxytyrosol derivatives, consumed daily via olive oils that are in this specific category, can protect from the oxidation of blood lipids. It is also important to mention that the compounds oleocanthal and oleacin that exist in health beneficial olive oils, have been attributed with anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, cardio protective and neuroprotective properties (These substances are called phenols and these olive oils are called high phenolic olive oils)


The producers that were awarded at the Olympia Health and Nutrition awards, had managed to produce at least one sample with health claim in the 2018 production season, while the olive oil samples were over 2500 from all around the world.
