There is a new phenolic king it town. PJ KABOS 'Family Reserve Organic - Phenolic Shot' Extra Virgin Olive Oil. With 1100 mg/kg phenolic content and 14.5 mg/20gr of Hydroxytyrosol, this product probably belongs in a medical rather than a food cabinet. Primary use: Daily Phenolic 'Shot' Secondary use: Finishing / Vinaigrettes A high-phenolic, low acidity, organic extra virgin olive oil that is the ideal accompaniment to your healthy lifestyle. Take a tablespoon every day as your daily antioxidant "shot" directly, or drizzled over your favorite foods. Hand-harvested, cold-extracted and without pesticides. EU Health Claim: "Olive oil polyphenols contribute to the protection of blood lipids from oxidative stress. The claim may be used only for olive oil, containing at least 5 mg of hydroxytyrosol and its derivatives (e.g. oleuropein complex and tyrosol) per 20 g of olive oil. In order to bear the claim information shall be given to the consumer that the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 20 g of olive oil (Commission Regulation (EU) 432/2012)." With 1100 mg/kg phenolic content and 14.5 mg/20g or Hydroxytyrosol (and its derivatives) this has one of the highest phenolic contents in the world for a true Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This means you only need 6.9 g (0.5 tbsp) per day of this product in order to fulfill the EU health claim above. This translates to an intake of just 60 calories (0.5 tbsp) instead of the 160 calories (1.45 tbsp) required for an Extra Virgin Olive Oil that contains the required 5 mg/20g of Hydroxytyrosol for the EU Health Claim. TIP: a bottle of this high-phenolic, organic extra virgin olive oil makes the perfect gift.
