Oleuropein obtaining procedure: high purity antioxidant

Posted by Consejo Superior de Investigaciones CientíficasResponsive · Patents for licensing · Spain

Summary of the technology

CSIC has developed a reliable and effective method for obtaining oleuropein from olive leaf: comprising
a pretreatment that increases the concentration of oleuropein in the extracts over other known
methods and achieving this bioactive compound with a purity superior of 70%.

Industrial partners from the food and pharmaceutical industry are being sought to collaborate through
a patent licence agreement.

Health promoting compound of natural origin


High purity oleuropein extracts from olive leaf Oleuropein is obtained from olive leaf by a quick and simple procedure that includes a pelletizing step of the raw material, providing better results in terms of the concentration of the bioactive compound extracted. The obtained extract can achieve a higher purity of 70% oleuropein, depending on the starting raw material and other factors.
Numerous studies have demonstrated that oleuropein has a wide range of pharmacological and health promoting properties including its antioxidant effect, anti-inflammatory, anti-atherogenic, anti-cancer, antiviral and antimicrobial.
Pre-clinical trials have shown that oleuropein exerts a protective action against cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.

Main innovations and advantages


· Obtaining of high purity natural bioactive compound · Valorization of olive grove residual biomass · Valorization of abundant byproduct from the olive oil industry · Pelletizing pretreatment process of the raw material improvesoutcomes · Application of the obtained oleuropein as a food supplement withhealth-promoting properties tested in pre-clinical trials · Application of the obtained oleuropein on cosmetic and pharmaceuticalindustries
