The present and future of olives and olive oil research 

Olive oil is one of the most valuable edible oils. As many consumers identify olive oil as a source of healthy fats with pleasant flavors, the demand for olive oil is increasingly around the world and rapidly in many of the non-producing countries. Although it is one of the most studied oils, many aspects are still unknown. In this seminar, we will cover the past, present and future research of olive oil in fives areas: olive growing, processing and byproducts; chemical and sensory quality; authenticity and traceability; health and nutrition; and consumer science.
