Aprutinum farm is located in Loreto Aprutino, a small town of central Italy (Abruzzo Region). It was founded in 2015 by Antonio Liberatoscioli, who decided to cultivated native olive tree (Dritta e Intosso) with the aim to obtain a nutraceutical olive oil.
The Aprutinum olive oils can be claimed as Nutraceutical oil because they are rich of antioxidant compounds, such as hydroxytyrosol and vitamin E(UE Regulation 432/2012; UE n. 1924/2006). To obtain the health properties of nutraceutical oil is necessary to consume 20 g of oil per day. Preferably, the oil should be taken raw, over meals or alone.
