How to recognize an olive oil high in Polyphenols

Polyphenols are mostly responsible for the bitter and pungent tastes in Olive Oil. Polyphenols are at their highest in the olive fruit when the fruit is not fully ripe, if you were to try this olive from the tree you would find it to be so bitter that most people find it unedible.

It should, therefore, be no surprise that Olive Oils with a high level of polyphenols are more bitter and pungent in taste and this is one of the easiest ways to recognize a high-phenolic olive oil.
