Acid fats are distinguish in saturated and non saturated; Olive oil has a composition of non saturated acid fats extremely balanced:

- oleic-acid


- linoleic-acid


- linolenic-acid


Saturated acid fats are 15% (average composition)

Compared to other mammals, oleic-acid is the fat mainly presents in the human body.

The linoleic-acid is contained in the oil with the same proportions of the maternal milk, this makes the extravergine olive oil extremely suitable for childrens.

In the oil there are then polynsaturated acid fats, defined essential because they cannot be synthetized from the human body and therefore, they have to be introduced by means of the nourishment.

Beyond to this particular composition, we do not have to neglect the presence of minor but interesting components, from the biological point of view. All these elements (Vitamin A, D, E, and K, phenolic elements and others) have anti-oxidant properties with consequent protecting effects.
