In this study, It was aimed to determine the effects of different production and preservation methods on the shelf life and quality of the Gemlik variety natural black table olives produced with low salt (2%). For this purpose the olives processed with traditional Turkis turning black olive using starter culture The MAP (Modified athmosphere packaging), vacuum and gamma irradiation method (1, 3 and 5 kGy) was applied for the first time in the preservation of table olives. The reducing effect of 5 kGy dose on total phenolic substance and DPPH antioxidant activity was found to be higher than other doses. During storage, pH (4.30-4.83) and titratable acidity (0.68-1.02%) values of black table olives changed in normal course. At the and of the fermentation and storage, total phenolic substance and DPPH antioxidant activity decreased and were found statistically significant (p<0.01). During the storage period, the total amount of phenolic matter in olives in normal production (without starter culture) decreased from 232 to 144 mgCAE/100g and in starter culture added table olives from 200 to 138 mgCAE/100g. As a result of the study, it was ensured that table black olives produced with less salt (2%) could be stored on the shelves for at least 6 months without using any preservatives. In addition, radiation effect on quality was relatively similar to other applications.
