Olive Health Information System

The Executive Secretariat has been working with the Department of Preventative Medicine and Public Health at the University of Navarra alongside a number of researchers withover ten years’ experience.

Together, they have created a portal that collects scientific information on the health benefits of olive oil and olive products. The project, called the Olive Health Information System, or OHIS, aims to provide users with a regularly updated database, giving them access to the latest research, including technical documents as well as more accessible content written in simple language.

Experts and scientists from the University will also publish scientific reviews and reports to summarise key research from all over the world, including infographics to illustrate the findings visually. The results will be included in the Observatory that the IOC is setting up to provide members and users with more up-to-date information on current issues. To reach the portal OHIS please click the link below.

The Olive Health Information System is a web-based project aimed to provide a permanently updated repository of all scientific reportsrelated to the health effects of olives, olive oil and other olive products.

The OHIS will serve as a means to keep a permanent service for the intereset of public health and nutrition epidemiology. In a friendly way for the general public OHIS will provide free accessible content related to mediterranean diet and health based in the most relevant scientific evidence.

The objective is dual: to connect researchers in order to spread technical scientific data among academics working in the field; to transfer this information the general public in order to disseminate scientific information on the benefits of mediterranean diet and olive oil.

The OHIS shall work in an interactive way in order to effectively search publications and data. These systems allow a high visibility of health-related nutritional issues or relevant public health topics.

A Tuscan PGI oil made by Terre dell’Etruria, a farming cooperative society that has invested all it has on its members, expertly helping and guiding them towards quality and success. The most impressive features of this extra virgin oil, flavour apart, are its remarkable quality/price ratio and extraordinary yield > Luigi Caricato

Signature recipe: Chocolate bread pudding with evoo

Marisa Iocco, chef and owner of Spiga Ristorante in Boston, offers us a typically American dessert, very popular and now considered so familiar that it cannot be taken off the menu, as much as it is required. The same dessert was proposed during the communication and training project held at the end of 2019 in Boston, Providence and New York, organized by the quality consortia of extra virgin olive oils Ceq Italia and, for Spain, by QvExtra! with the support of the European Union.

Olio Turri's blog, a happy exception

Very few oil producers run blogs. Turri's, with its minimalistic design, is both simple and elegant. It is also available in English: posts are published at regular intervals and dispatched through newsletters > Luigi Caricato

The art of healthy eating

The fruit of tradition, care and a passion for quality. Our story starts here, in Puglia. The beating heart of the Mediterranean Sea. This is the birthplace of our oil-making art, an art that has always considered olives as a living body. Video Spot Corporate by Masseria di Sant'Eramo
