The uniqueness of Olive Oil is also justified by the presence in a great variety of particularly Active Components.
The most popular of these components are:
# Tocopherols (Vitamin E): protectors of cell membranes and anti-oxidants.
# Beta-carothen (provitamin A): which plays a major role in many metabolic processes and sight.
# Polyphenols: carrying anti-oxidant and anti-ageing properties.
# Phytosterols: regulating the absorption of cholesterol Triglycerides of essential fatty acids in the correct ratio omega3 and omega-6 (Vitamin F): protecting the integrity of many cell structures.
# Oleocanthal: a powerful anti-inflammatory agent.
Furthermore, Del Papa’s quality assurance & research laboratory is one of the few labs of its kind in all of Italy. Operated by our own local Umbrian expert QA director Ms Katia Donati, the 900 square-foot lab includes management offices; a chemical room for testing acidity, peroxide index, and other chemical-related metrics; a purity room for testing fatty acids, sterols and hydrocarbons; temperature-controlled sample storage container; and an organoleptic tasting room optimized for testing our Del Papa Family oil’s visual appearance, actual taste and scent.
This Del Papa Family’s commitment to excellence is one of the reasons why we have maintained the integrity of our products, gratefully servicing you and your families Olive Oils needs for over 70 years.
