The London International Olive Oil Competition is the first international olive oil competition that awards extra virgin olive oils that combine a highly health-protective character with the right organoleptic properties.
This initiative is expected to set the bar very high for the promotion of olive oils with a health claim as a superfood product in international markets across the world.
The scientific team evaluating the phenolic components of the Competitions' olive oils, headed by Dr. Prokopis Magiatis, Professor of Pharmacognosy and Chemistry of Natural Products at the University of Athens, has proven that extra virgin olive oils contain a broad spectrum of natural health protective components, with their relative concentration differing greatly between the various olive tree cultivars. Many of these chemical compounds have been proven to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties capable of protecting the cardiovascular system.
