“The Philosophers Gold” – Premium olive oil of the highest quality from the Turkish Aegean Sea
Our premium extra virgin olive oil is obtained in gentle cold extraction of early hand-harvested olives from Miletus (Aegean/Turkey).
Due to the early harvest and the pressing on the same day, our oil contains a very high proportion of healthy bitter substances, the polyphenols.
These polyphenols are considered, among other things, anti-inflammatory and cancer preventive. In various studies with polyphenols, an inhibited growth of cancer cells in the mammary gland, lung, skin, intestine and prostate was observed (Lansky 2007). Flavonoids and anthocyanins protect body cells from free radicals and slow down cell oxidation. They reduce fatty deposits in blood vessels and thus prevent arteriosclerosis.
Since we do without yield due to the very early harvest, but gain a particularly high proportion of polyphenols, we produce not only a tasty and digestible premium olive oil, but also a particularly healthy one. That is why we call it “green gold”. Since our olive trees are located in Miletus, the home of the great philosopher Thales (“Thales of Miletus”) and he is not only considered the founder of Western philosophy (as the first pre-Socrat) but also demonstrably dealt in olives, this became our claim “THE PHILOSOPHER’s GOLD”. Valuable and healthy: a real treasure!
