The extraction was achieved by saponification and solid-phase extraction (SPE) and the determination was done by using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with a Diode array detector. Q10 level was determined in Khrage oil to detect the effect of boiling of olive fruits during the extraction of oil on Q10 concentration. Syrian olive oil samples contained high amount of CoQ10 ranged from 50.8 to 62.1μg/g oil
