The range of products tested comprises:

  • Cold-pressed vegetable oils (olive oil extra virgin, rapeseed oil, sunflower seed oil, pumpkin seed oil, walnut oil)
  • Refined edible oils (rapeseed oil, sunflower seed oil)

Test criteria:  

  • Product-specific sensory analysis
    (colour, transparency, appearance, exclusion faults, seediness and nuttiness or fruitiness, balance, odour, taste)
  • Packaging, labelling
    (checking of the label)
  • Analytical parameters
    (e.g. diglycerides, polymeric triglycerides, optional testing for softeners and pesticides)

Edible oils that pass the DLG tests receive the “DLG award winner” medal in Gold, Silver or Bronze.
