Ohis: olive oil and health, in collaboration with the University of Navarra

The member countries of the IOC recently approved a proposal to create a portal that gathers scientific information on the health benefits of olive oil and olive products. The project, called the Olive Health Information System, or Ohis, is planned to begin in the coming months.

The Executive Secretariat is supported by the Department of Preventative Medicine and Public Health at the University of Navarra, in collaboration with researchers who hold over ten years’ experience. The aim is to create a regularly updated database that gathers the latest scientific research. The portal is designed with both researches and the general public in mind; it will include technical documents as well as more accessible content written in simple language that can be understood by all.

Experts and scientists from the University will also publish scientific reviews and reports to summarise key research from all over the world, as well as provide infographics to illustrate the findings visually. The results will be included in the Observatory that the IOC is setting up to provide members with more up-to-date information on current issues.

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

Ravioli with Garda extra virgin olive oil stuffing and black olive charcoals

Extra Virgin Garda DOP olive oil’s distinctive traits are its naturally delicate flavor and its elegance. At the taste it can be recognized for harmony or its organoleptic notes and for the light and balanced aromas: the scents of fresh grass, aromatic herbs, hay and artichoke, together with the typical almond aftertaste, make it unique.

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
