It’s a proven fact that contact with heat removes polyphenols (antioxidants) from the olive oil while also reducing flavor and body. Ottoman’s olives are never in contact with heat and are always cold processed. That is how we produce premium quality extra virgin olive oil bottle after bottle.
No blends of different grades, seasons, regions and countries. Our product is single sourced and made from a single type of olives enhancing the flavors unique to our brand. Mixing olives and blending oils from different regions are unfortunately common in the industry but not with Ottoman!
99% of our olives are green and picked early to achieve the low acidity of 0.5% that makes our products unapologetically Extra Virgin. The only way we know is to pick the best of olives on the first day of harvest and process within hours to sustain the high standards we set for ourselves!
Why Ottoman Olive Oils?
Making olive oil is similar to making art, and the resulting product should be like a work of art and leave its taste on your plate for a long time.
Therefore, in order to realize this, we have taken care to determine the most accurate technique and method by examining the books written in Spain and Italy, one of the most important olive oil producers in the world, as well as the experts of the subject and the Ottoman family.
As a result, our factory is equipped with all the facilities of technology in Çanakkale by realizing the principles of health, safety and naturalness that we have achieved in order to ensure that every individual can taste the real olive oil.
It is a very hygienic approach for human health to carry out the squeezing process after washing the olives brought to the factory in suitable conditions and brought to the perforated crates twice.
Unlike the products you have consumed for years in the name of olive oil, we provide all our customers to enjoy 100% olive oil by offering options that are natural, produced under appropriate conditions
You can use all of our products in every meal, appetizer and pastry.
