Could you recommend a EUROPEAN gluten-free (not cross-contaminated) organic brand of EVOO?

I do not live in the U.S. and cannot get EVOO from there. However, I can get any European brand. Please list your favorite ones.

I was about to purchase a nice-looking bottle of EVOO from France, when I have noticed a disclaimer in teeny-tiny print: "Dans notre atelier sont egalement produties des huiles de sesame, de soja, de germe de ble et de fruits a conques". Which means that it might contain traces of wheat.

I do not care if it is organic or not, as long as it has not been processed at the same facility as wheat.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They have cooperatives all over the olive producing regions in Turkey and make other olive based products, like olive pastes.

VB, I'm certainly not suggesting that you go to Ayvalik, although I'm sure you would love it :) Here's one that is sold outside of Turkey: Taris Organik (organic, really really tasty, you could eat spoonfuls of it with lemon) If I find any more that are readily available in Europe, I'll let you know.

Thank you very much. I will be looking for a Portuguese olive oil from now on.

So the name of the brand is Ayvalik or do I have to go to the town on Ayvalik?

Thanks for the answer. You are right about cross-contamination.

In that video it looked like pickled olives. I could be wrong though.

But, it may be easier to find "gluten-free (not cross-contaminated)" olives than the olive oil. I don't think olive oil is made from pickled olives, if I'm understanding your question correctly.

Great answer... But olives do not grow where I live. Wait a second, do they make olive oil OUT OF PICKLED OLIVES??? If they do, I will never have EVOO in my life!!!

Any portuguese brand. I'm a little biased okay, but i can guarantee you that the EVOO from Portugal is almost 100% produced in a apropriate press, right after the olive picking. They'r called "lagar"(singular) and are localized near the crops, so it does not extract any other oils.

I wissh i could have such a bang for the buck coconut oil in portugal as we get top olive oil in the world,, and a very fair prices.

Do you consider Turkish olive oil to be European? I have had some really good artisanal oils from Ayvalik. Because they are produced in small batches, I suppose the potential for cross-contamination would be lower. Maybe I'm completely wrong but I'm guessing the cross-contamination happens when the oil is produced by a company that also produces other (wheat-containing) food products and doesn't do so in a separate facility.

How about this:

The background music is probably optional, but definitely recommended.
