Unripe oil is the natural oil that comes from the crushing of olives that have not yet wrinkled and retain their green color. The ancient Greeks called it omobrives or omfakio. Unripe oil is oil that is produced relatively early, before the olive fruit ripens, which is unripe and green. It has a bright green color due to the chlorophyll of unripe olives which give fresh olive oil greater antioxidant properties while it contains all the vitamins and provitamins of olive oil, minerals, and polyphenols, which protect cells from oxidative stress, active oxygen and free radicals.
