Our farm is now IQO Index Quaitatis Oleum certified.
Following research carried out by the University of Florence, IQO developed an algorithm that could process data to detect more than twenty molecules of nutraceutical value that occur naturally in EVO oil. The IQO algorithm tests EVO oil and certifies that it has a high natural nutraceutical content, i.e., it has a beneficial effect on health in addition to its basic nutritional value. Each package of EVO oil bearing an adhesive label with the IQO trademark has undergone chemical analysis and has passed the evaluation of its nutraceutical content by the IQO Algorithm. In addition, each IQO-certified EVO oil can claim the specific health benefits specified by the EFSA European Food Safety Authority.
A very useful instrument to comunicate the high quality of our oils!
