Hydroxytyrosol is a phenolic compound, which is easily absorbed by our body. It is also an antioxidant. It is said that its antioxidant value can reach 40,000 μmol TE/g, so it can be seen that hydroxytyrosol has strong antioxidant activity, which is closely related to its structure.
Hydroxytyrosol is usually found in the fruits and branches of olives in esterified form, especially in olive leaves, which are relatively higher than the fruit and bark. In addition, hydroxytyrosol can also be synthesized chemically.
At present, the commonly used hydroxytyrosol on the market is mainly white to brownish-yellow powder with more purity levels. Users can choose hydroxytyrosol with appropriate purity according to their actual needs.
In recent years, with the development of the downstream fields such as cosmetics, medicine, and health products, and the increase of the downstream market penetration rate of hydroxytyrosol, the demand for hydroxytyrosol in China has shown a rapid growth trend.
