"It's a great tool we use routinely for in house evaluation of high quality olive oil. Inexpensive, quick and reliable" said Kostas Peimanidis of Agrovim, olive oil producer and exporter, Kalamata.
ATHENS, GREECE, September 02, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Artemis Alliance Inc. announces the Aristoleo(TM) Test Kit, a new Greek invention for measuring significant health promoting phenolic compounds in olive oil: oleocanthal and oleacein. Aristoleo Test kit is a hand held 'lab in a vial' that quickly measures the healthfulness of olive oil. High Phenolic Extra Virgin Olive Oil (HPOO) is a new category based not only on organoleptic characteristics, but more importantly on scientific testing and proven health claims.
"Aristoleo Test Kit helps to discover the healthiest and highest phenolic olive oils. We are providing an opportunity to reconsider the value and the use of this superior nutritional food," said Marilyn Harding, Director of Artemis Alliance Inc.
"We tested the Aristoleo prototype last year in our olive mill and I also use it to demonstrate the superiority of our olive oil to our customers," said Spyros Dafnis, owner of award winning The Governor brand. "Corfu up until two years ago had a reputation for producing below average olive oil. Today, thanks to Aristoleo Test Kit and Magiatis - Melliou research, Corfu Island is now producing one of the highest phenolic olive oils in the world."
Aristoleo offers a significant competitive advantage for industry participants throughout the olive oil industry: olive growers, olive mills, branding companies, sales networks as well as the scientific community. It is a simple and precise method that can be used by all professionals to test the real health value of their olive oil.
"It's a great tool that we use routinely for in house evaluation of high quality olive oil. Inexpensive, quick and reliable," said Kostas Peimanidis of Agrovim, the largest olive oil producer and exporter in Kalamata, Greece.
Consumers will now be able to easily identify the healthiest olive oil brands worldwide that are certified regarding high phenolic compounds. Oleocanthal's anti-inflammatory and Oleacein's anti-oxidant properties are being studied for the prevention and/or treatment of a variety of ailments. Global scientific research continues to confirm the health benefits of regular consumption of high phenolic extra virgin olive oil.
Aristoleo Test Kit is based on the Magiatis-Melliou method and is verified by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) at the University of Athens. Research was financed by Artemis Alliance Inc. a Canadian company that is focused on holistic lifestyle, research and innovation.
Aristoleo is intended for professional use only and will be available for sale in the EU (European Union) on September 22, 2015.
Artemis Alliance Inc. is a Canadian Corporation in pursuit of strategic alliances in holistic lifestyle research and innovation with a focus on Hellenic culture and food.
