The most powerful antioxidant – hydroxytyrosol

Introduction of Hydroxytyrosol

Hydroxytyrosol (3,4-dihydroxyphenylethanol; DOPET) is a phytochemical with antioxidant properties. After gallic acid, hydroxytyrosol is believed to be one of the most powerful antioxidants. Its oxygen radical absorbance capacity is 40,000 umolTE/g, which is ten times higher than that of green tea, and two times higher than that of CoQ10. In nature, hydroxytyrosol is found in olive oil in the form of its elenolic acid ester oleuropein and, especially after degradation, in its plain form. Both compounds, along with oleocanthal, are responsible for the bitter taste of extra virgin olive oil. The olives, leaves and olive pulp contain small amounts of hydroxytyrosol, most of which can be recovered to produce hydroxytyrosol extracts.

Hydroxytyrosol Extraction Process

Often considered nature’s perfect antioxidant, hydroxytyrosol is one of the key active ingredients in the olive that is largely responsible for the olive’s tremendous health benefits. Hydroxytyrosol is a natural phytochemical with the highest antioxidant properties discovered to date.

Hydroxytyrosol extraction process is the result of a unique patent pending production and purification process that yields an unprecedented 25% hydroxytyrosol content. The Oleuropein has been completely tranferred through a biotransformation process into the bioactive hydroxytyrosol. No Oleuropein residue remains in final product!

Baoding faithful industry Co.,Ltd focused on the development of olive leaf extract, production and sales for more than 10 years. We specialize in cosmetic and health food ingredients and raw material.
