Chemlali olive oil has been blended with oils obtained from Oueslati and Chetoui varieties to improve the quality of the former one. Parameters such as acidity, acids compositions, phenol content, oxidative stability and volatile compounds were characterised for various blends Chemlali · Oueslati and Chemlali · Chetoui. The accumulation of volatiles originating from the lipoxygenase pathway in the monovarietal oils was different and closely dependent on the genetic store of each variety. The concentrations appeared to proportionally vary according to the relative proportion of each monovarietal oil in the mixtures. The blending process improved fatty acids by increasing the oleic acid content and decreasing the palmitic and linoleic acids levels of Chemlali oil. At 40% blending, oleic acid increased from 54% to 62%, while palmitic acid decreased from 18.59% to 16% when Oueslati and Chetoui olive oil was used.
