Our products We produce different qualities of extra virgin olive oil and between these two pitted oils Scientific research has shown experimentally that the quality of oils extracted from pitted olives is higher than that of oils obtained from whole fruit. The superior quality of pitted oils determine: • lower acidity and peroxide values; • Increased amounts of polyphenolic substances in oil; • Increased resistance to oxidation and better preservation of oil over time; • oils are more balanced with a lot of tipical aromatics substances. Our VENTOMARE and AFRODITE pitted extra virgin olive oils are rich in polyphenols. A great extra virgin olive oil contains 100 to 250 mg of polyphenols; from many of our groves, we have about 400 mg of polyphenols per liter of oil.
