Green glass (GG), ultraviolet grade absorbing glass (UVAGG), and multilayer (plastic-coated paperboard aluminium foil) (MLP) packagings were used for storing two commercially extra virgin olive oils (EVOOs) with different phenolic and volatile compound contents to evaluate their effect on oil quality evolution over 10 months of light exposure. Quality parameters such as free acidity, peroxide value, spectrophotometric indices, antioxidant and volatile compositions as well as sensory characteristics were evaluated; packaging material type and initial antioxidant composition significantly influenced EVOOs’ resistance to oxidation, and consequently their quality. Compared with GG or UVAGG, MLP provided superior protection against oxidation; oils stored in MLP containers retained their characteristics within the regulatory limits and contained more antioxidants and fewer ‘rancid’ defect and related volatile compounds.

Overall quality evolution of extra virgin olive oil exposed to light for 10 months in different containers.

Abstract

Green glass (GG), ultraviolet grade absorbing glass (UVAGG), and multilayer (plastic-coated paperboard aluminium foil) (MLP) packagings were used for storing two commercially extra virgin olive oils (EVOOs) with different phenolic and volatile compound contents to evaluate their effect on oil quality evolution over 10 months of light exposure. Quality parameters such as free acidity, peroxide value, spectrophotometric indices, antioxidant and volatile compositions as well as sensory characteristics were evaluated; packaging material type and initial antioxidant composition significantly influenced EVOOs’ resistance to oxidation, and consequently their quality. Compared with GG or UVAGG, MLP provided superior protection against oxidation; oils stored in MLP containers retained their characteristics within the regulatory limits and contained more antioxidants and fewer ‘rancid’ defect and related volatile compounds.
