Acidity determines the category of oil; for extra virgin olive oil the acidity is free, expressed in oleic acid, shall not exceed 0,8 g.
Peroxides indicate the conservation status of the oil with specific reference to the rancidness status.
The lower the number of peroxides, the better the oil quality. The value of 20 meq.02/kg is the limit for marketability for food.
The K values allow to distinguish a pressure oil from an rectified one, as well as for the oxidation state.
Industrial production oils have a high K value.
The tocopherols indicate the vitamin E content, they are oil quality index and act as antioxidants; they also have great nutritional value.
