22 April 2013
There are different analytical methods available to differentiate virgin from refined or thermally-treated olive oils. This application note presents a method for the determination of 3,5-stigmastadienes in olive oil using the Agilent 1220 LC System with Diode Array Detector. Seven olive oils were analyzed for 3,5-stigmastadiene to determine refining processes or other thermal treatments according to EN ISO 15788-3:2004 (D).
