Aristoleo™ Test Kit is a ‘lab in a vial’, which measures health promoting phenolic compounds in olive oil – now on Indiegogo.
Athens, Greece, August 25, 2015 – Artemis Alliance Inc. announces new innovation Aristoleo™ Test Kit that it is raising funds via a rewards crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. Funds are required to begin manufacturing and distributing this inexpensive, in-the-field technology. The company set out to raise €30,000.00 on Indiegogo to secure trademark, register patent, set up manufacturing and distribution and to create a smartphone app for accuracy and ease of use. This simple test supports a new category of High Phenolic Extra Virgin Olive Oil that will revolutionize how olive oil around the world is produced, sorted and labelled for the health conscious consumer.
“Aristoleo™ Test Kit helps to discover the best olive varieties in order to produce the highest quality phenolic olive oils. We are providing an opportunity to reconsider the value and the use of this superior nutritional food,” said Marilyn Harding, Director of Artemis Alliance Inc.
“We tested the Aristoleo™ prototype last year in our olive mill and I also use it to demonstrate the superiority of our olive oil to our customers,” said Spyros Dafnis, owner of award winning The Governor brand. “Corfu, up until two years ago, had a reputation for producing below average olive oil. Today, thanks to Aristoleo™ Test Kit and Magiatis – Melliou research, Corfu Island is now producing one of the highest phenolic olive oils in the world.”
Aristoleo™ offers a significant competitive advantage for industry participants throughout the olive oil industry: olive growers, olive mills, branding companies, sales networks as well as the scientific community. It is a simple and precise method that can be used by all professionals to test the real health value of their olive oil.
“It’s a great tool that we use routinely for in house evaluation of high quality olive oil. Inexpensive, quick and reliable” commented Kostas Peimanidis of Agrovim the largest olive oil producer and exporter in Kalamata, Greece.
To build market awareness, the campaign rewards are some of the top rated Greek High Phenolic EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) available in the world. By measuring the individual phenolic compounds in EVOO, consumers will be able to easily identify the healthiest olive oil brands worldwide. Oleocanthal’s anti-inflammatory and Oleacein’s anti-oxidant properties are being studied for the prevention and/or treatment of a variety of ailments. Global scientific research continues to confirm the health benefits of regular consumption of high phenolic extra virgin olive oil.
Aristoleo™ Test Kit is based on the Magiatis-Melliou method and is verified by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance at the University of Athens. Artemis Aliiance Inc. is a Canadian company that is focused on holistic lifestyle, research and innovation.
