This RIRDC report analyses the impact of the use of traditional and new processing aids on olive oil extraction and oil quality.
The information generated by this project aims to provide new tools for improving olive oil processing that can increase both the extraction efficiency and profitability for olive producers in the Australian industry.
The report is targeted at the relatively new and actively growing group of olive oil processors in Australia. An understanding of the use of processing aids by oil producers will help them increase their profitability without affecting the quality of their product.
