Optical activity is a macroscopic property of chiral molecules which manifests as a rotation of the plane of linear polarization when light passes through a sample. We have developed a compact Bell inequality experiment for quantum probing of chiral liquids, based on polarization measurements. In particular, we show that we can use a Bell-type inequality configuration to measure the optical activity of D-Limonene, a chiral molecule which is a major component in the oil of citrus fruit peels.
