The olive oil label market needs to be standardized
on May 31, when investigating the varieties of olive oil sold in supermarkets such as Carrefour and Wal Mart in Harbin, it was found that whether it is olive oil of international brands or olive oil with very little popularity, the labels are basically marked with "virgin olive oil" and "super virgin olive oil", and only a few are marked with "pure olive oil" and "olive sunflower oil"
it is reported that at present, the olive oil sold in China is basically imported, and the initial pressed oil in the imported olive oil is no more than 40%, while the others are refined olive oil and olive pomace oil, which are not sold in Harbin
it is understood that olive oil is a kind of edible oil widely used in the Mediterranean region. Olive oil has a high content of unsaturated fatty acids, which is conducive to human digestion and absorption. Therefore, it has high nutritional value and is recognized as a green health oil. At present, there are not many consumers who eat olive oil in China, so many people are not familiar with olive oil. In addition, China has no mandatory standards for the olive oil market, which makes the olive oil market more chaotic
the professional standard olive oil and olive fruit residue issued by the former Ministry of forestry in 1990 explains different types of olive oil. Virgin olive oil refers to the natural oil produced by pressing olive fresh fruits with mechanical tools, which has not been subjected to other physical and chemical treatment, especially the connecting thread of each oil pipe is the most nutritious. Refined olive oil is to use oil refining method to treat virgin olive oil that cannot be consumed directly. When it is mixed with a certain proportion of virgin olive oil, it is called pure olive oil, and its nutritional value is not as good as virgin olive oil. While olive oil fruit residue is to refine the olive fruit residue after oil extraction, and then mix it with a certain proportion of virgin olive oil, which has the lowest nutritional value and cannot be called olive oil
in the investigation, it was also found that the production date of most imported olive oil was marked on the label affixed to the bottle body or on the neck of the bottle. According to professionals, olive oil produced by foreign manufacturers often printed the production date on the metal bottle cap when leaving the factory. Olive oil imported into China is divided into original packaging and sub packaging. Original packaging refers to imported products in small packages that are filled by the original factory abroad, and sub packaging refers to products that are imported in bulk by agents and then filled in China. Therefore, there is a large gap in the cost of these two imported oils
during the unannounced visit, it was found that most of the olive oil sold in supermarkets were sub packaged products of some agents in Shenzhen and Beijing. It is found that there is a brand of olive oil called "pure olive oil", which is said to be directly cold pressed from olives. The definition of "pure olive oil" in the professional standard - olive oil and olive fruit residue with compact instrument structure is "the mixture of virgin olive oil and refined olive oil that can be consumed directly". It was also found that most olive oils were not strictly regulated from raw materials to the operation of employees, and the proportion of ingredients was marked. At present, China has only issued some standards for the olive oil market. If we want to strengthen the olive oil market, we must have mandatory national standards. It is understood that China's national standard "olive oil, olive fruit residue" is already being drafted, which is also the latest milestone in the field of 3D printing, but the specific introduction will take time
