Investigations for the detection of soft deodorized olive oils
Project code: MRI-GE-08-1080 DESOLI
Contract period: 01.09.2020 - 31.08.2021
Purpose of research: Applied research
Keywords: Sustainable process and product quality
The aim of the project is to establish methods for the detection of soft deodorization of olive oil or blends of virgin olive oils with soft deodorized olive oils. In addition, on the one hand compounds are to be identified, which are formed as consequence of a soft deodorization. On the other hand, it will be investigated how the profile of volatile compounds of olive oil changes during soft deodorization. Subsequently, using statistical methods, models will be developed on the basis of the obtained data, which allow to identify soft deodorized olive oils or blends with soft deodorized olive oils.
