Acidic and sterol composition, pigment fraction and antioxidant compounds(tocopherols, total phenols and polar phenols) from eight monovarietal Sicilianolive oil samples, analyzed during the crop seasons from 2003/2004 to2005/2006, are reported. Cultivars were divided, according to their diffusion,in main, minor and neglected cultivars. Encouraging data were observed forminor and neglected cultivars, for some revaluation in regard to their relevance,because they showed the highest content in tocopherols, in total phenolsand polar phenols compared with main cultivars.
