About Filtering

Spartan Oil is not filtered during production, nor is it filtered during the bottling process. We choose to avoid filtering the olive oil to maintain the full flavor and nutritional benefits. This is done at the minor cost of aesthetics. You may notice that our oil appears cloudy or that a layer of sediment settles to the bottom of the bottle. This sediment may come out while trying to get the last drops of oil out of your bottle. This sediment is perfectly natural and is not an indicator that the oil has degraded. It is perfectly safe for consumption.

Families in the Sparta region have enjoyed their oil unfiltered for centuries.
