    What goes into tasting and testing olive oils?

    Can you tell a bad olive oil from a good one? Like any food, there's a certain pungency to the aroma of "off" olive oil and that of course affects the way it tastes and its nutritional benefits. Claudia Guillaume has extensive experience in sensory evaluation of olive oil and olive products. Originally from Argentina, Claudia Guillaume came to Australia in 2006 to head up Modern Olives Laboratory. Major players in the olive industry turn to the team at Modern Olives for help in project development, technical advice, applied research and of course olive- and olive-oil testing.

    The discovery of oleocanthal found in EVOO

    Not only is it healthy, but fresh extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) can enhance the taste and aroma of many different kinds of dishes – from salads to cooked meat and vegetables, or as a substitute to butter on toast. Professor Russell Keast has researched oleocanthal – a natural compound found in EVOO – responsible for the burning sensation at the back of the throat when you swallow it. Oleocanthal has been found to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties which can help alleviate heart disease and Alzheimer's disease. Russell gives his insights about the taste of extra virgin olive oil and how it fits into our diet.

Ian is a clinical herbalist and naturopath, and senior lecturer at Endeavour College of Natural Health in Sydney. He explains the potency of OLE as an antioxidant and research he's been conducting with the Olive Wellness Institute.
