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 polyphenols and these olive oils are called high phenolic olive oils or health beneficiary olive oils.

The producers that were awarded at the Olympia Health and Nutrition awards, managed to produce at least one sample with health claim in the 2018 - 2019 production season, while the olive oil samples were sent from all around the world.OLYMPIA AWARDS 2019 1
