Abstract

Ninety percent of the olive trees are destined to oil production in the Mediterranean basin. Within a wide study of Southern Italian olive oils, with a particular reference to Sicily, several varieties of olive have been studied. The result of an analytical study carried out with two cultivars "Nocellara del Belice" and "Cerasuola" for six consecutive years is described in this paper. Parameters related to olive oil purity and shelf-life together with the composition (%) of sterols and fatty acids of the single oils are shown. Data were analyzed by the univariate non-parametric Mann-Whitney test and the multivariate procedure of Factor Analysis.
