The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) regulations state that EVOO will improve the health of an individual when the oil contains about 5 mg of phenols per 20 grams of EVOO (approximately 30 ml or 2 tablespoons). In layman’s terms, this mean you want to include in your diet 2 tablespoons per day of extra virgin olive oil that has an approximate total phenol count of 200 mg/kg (gallic eq mg/kg). The total phenol count is often listed on the oil producer’s web site.nEVOO with phenol contents in the 200-400 mg/kg are much healthier for you and will not deteriorate during storage as quickly as those with lower phenol contents. Most commercial EVOO is less than 50 mgs/kg. Remember, oil stored in plastic deteriorates more quickly. Therefore, my advice is to purchase EVOO that was harvested within the last 12 months, has a phenol count around 400mg/kg and is stored in a glass, tin or foiled lined container to prevent phenol loss through the plastic. A phenol count close to 400 will give a good guarantee that by the time of the next harvest, the olive oil will still have enough potency to protect you medically.
