In these ways Berkeley Olive Grove differs greatly from newer mechanically pruned and harvested super- high-density operations. The age of the trees, the terroir, and the dry farming produce rich, quality extra virgin olive oils that are unique in terms of exquisite flavors, very high antioxidants, exemplary stability, and important bioactive constituents. The excellence of these extra virgin olive oils is the result of superior orchard production through milling methods and practices.


• Extra virgin olive oil is a raw food with live enzymes, improved by being produced at lower temperatures; it’s a monounsaturated fat that raises HDL but lowers LDL.

• Antioxidants are found in phenols. The average polyphenol content reported by UC, Davis Olive Center in 2010 and 2011 was 222 mg caffeic acid/ kg oil. California industrial agriculture olive oils in the report were 41 percent of average. Berkeley Olive Grove 1913 olive oils measured 159 percent (analyzed by an independent laboratory); the average of the 2016 release is 472 gallic, approximately 213 percent of the average. • The primary measure of olive oil stability, usually “acidity” on labels, is the

oxidized oleic fatty acids (lower is better). The international allowance is 0.8 percent. California Olive Oil Council’s is 0.5 percent. Berkeley Olive Grove 1913 offerings have ranged 0.05 percent to 0.28 percent.
