Sorry, I can't find any reference in the link you mentioned, other than references to freshness, purity and antioxidants, which are quite vague terms.

Julie, could you PM me a copy of the report from your olive oil company please? It seems to be quite a good product.

NewRon- sorry, I can't find specific info on the web as my current stash may no longer be available. It's a South African called Don Carlos with a polyphenol count over 500. Amphora Nueva only sells EVOO that meets the ultra premium purity standards. Once again, their website doesn't display their highest polyphenol counts. The best way to get that information (at any given time) is to call Nate Bradley personally with the contact info I provided in my last post.

Julie,

Thanks for that.

The link you just supplied should suffice. I'll email them and see what they say.

I meant to pass this along a while ago. I couldn't find good quality EVOO at a good price in San Diego and went online. After lengthy search I found Berkeley Olive Grove (not in Berkeley, but in Oroville). They offer organic EVOO and claim an average of 478 ppm polyphenols. I have been ordering the gallon quantity from them for two years. Small operation: after my first order the owner sent me a few chatty emails. I don't want to sound like a shill - they report third party evaluations at their website - if interested, just look and judge for yourself.

I love Arbequina oils. Spain, Portugal, maybe some in California.

I recently switched from Amphora Nueva to Costco's Kirland brand as a trial, based on Kirland being much cheaper (even after our discount) and at the top of ConsumerLab's report for polyphenols and oleic acid. I was a bit concerned it might not be as fresh as Amphora, but I decided to give it a try. The 'use by' date is in 2020, so it's either fairly recently harvested or they allow too big a window for my comfort. I'll try to contact them and ask about that. I like the oil fine, but the big disappointment is that it comes in plastic bottles. That's bad in itself, and they also don't say 'BPA free' (not that BPA free guarantees there are no other problems in the plastic).

Did we agree a loooooong time back that it's best to store unused bottles in the fridge?

I use the Kirkland brand that comes in the glass bottle based on Dr. Gundry's recommendation. I like it just fine and the price is very reasonable.

Thanks SoCalGuy, indeed I had thought I was ordering the same as Dr. Gundry recommends but was mistaken. I may try the Kirkland in the glass bottle, but I’m caught between trying to reduce expenses and wanting reassurances about the oil’s polyphenol, oleic acid and peroxide status.
