Hydroxytyrosol is a phenolic compound that is easily absorbed by our body and is an antioxidant. It is said that its antioxidant value can reach 40,000 μmol TE/g, and hydroxytyrosol has strong antioxidant activity, which is closely related to its structure.
Hydroxytyrosol is usually found in the esterified form of olive fruits and leaves, especially olive leaves, where it is significantly more abundant than fruit and bark, and can also be obtained through chemical synthesis.
At present, the common hydroxytyrosol on the market is mainly white to brownish yellow powder, with many purity grades. Users can choose the appropriate purity hydroxytyrosol according to the actual needs. In recent years, with the development of cosmetics, medicine, health care products and other downstream fields, as well as the increase of the penetration rate of hydroxytyrosol in the downstream market, China’s demand for hydroxytyrosol shows a trend of rapid growth.
