This research investigated the effect of stone removal before processing on the antioxidant activity of monovarietal extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) in comparison with the non-destoned counterpart. The antioxidant activity of the polar compounds in the EVOO extract from destoned olives and the scavenging properties against 2,2’-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical showed high efficiency in preventing the damages induced by free radicals. Moreover, polar extract showed the presence of flavonoic compounds and the ability to preserve β-carotene from products of linoleic acid lipidic peroxidation. The comparison of the antioxidant properties of the destoned EVOO polar extract with the non-destoned EVOO extract proved an increased antioxidant activity by stone removal.

Abstract

This research investigated the effect of stone removal before processing on the antioxidant activity of monovarietal extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) in comparison with the non-destoned counterpart. The antioxidant activity of the polar compounds in the EVOO extract from destoned olives and the scavenging properties against 2,2’-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical showed high efficiency in preventing the damages induced by free radicals. Moreover, polar extract showed the presence of flavonoic compounds and the ability to preserve β-carotene from products of linoleic acid lipidic peroxidation. The comparison of the antioxidant properties of the destoned EVOO polar extract with the non-destoned EVOO extract proved an increased antioxidant activity by stone removal.
