Natural Olive Oil Preservative as Effective as Synthetic Ones

Natural Olive Oil Preservative as Effective as Synthetic Ones | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it

A new study has found that adding tomato peel extracts to refined olive oil increases the product’s shelf life.
Researchers from the University of Sfax and Ayachi Group Industry in Tunisia compared the stabilizing effects of adding oleoresin and synthetic antioxidants to the oils.
When olive oil is refined some of its natural antioxidants are partially eliminated and therefore must be supplemented in order to prevent the oil from spoiling. Olive oil must be refined when the quality is too low to be safely consumed. According to the International Olive Council, more than 50 percent of olive oil produced in the Mediterranean region is refined.

The controversial kitchen

The controversial kitchen | CIHEAM Press Review | Scoop.it
Conflict, it seems, is an inevitable guest to both the kitchen and dining table. What is exceptional about food, and mezze in particular, is its powerful ability to bring people together despite circumstances – even giving a sense of unity across seeming divides. Mezze holds together a region stretching from the far western coast of North Africa to the Arabian Sea, and from the Balkans down to Yemen. It does not silence disagreements or close controversial conversations – in fact, it often keeps them alive. But in the end, isn’t that what food is for?
