Title: Water-soluble extract from olives

Abstract: The invention provides a stable, olive-derived vegetation water substantially free of monophenolic compounds (e.g., tyrosol and its derivatives). The olive or seeds are removed from the olives prior to pressing. The pitless pulp or meat is then pressed to obtain a liquid-phase mixture including olive oil, vegetation water, and solid by-products. The vegetation water is separated from the rest of the liquid-phase mixture and collected, and stabilized for long term storage by acidification.
