Sustainably Grown Ripe Kalamata Olives
Grown and harvested in an untainted central valley of California, our Kalamata Olives are pure, naturally cured and delicious. A nutritious food that's technically a fruit, they are one of nature's most delightful sources of the antioxidant vitamin E. They also have vitamin A, calcium and iron, as well as oleic acid, a heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. These flavorful olives have a taste to match their nutritional benefits, adding a savory boost to salads and cuisine of all types.
The Sunfood Difference ™
Did you know that most olives are picked long before they are truly ripe and can even be softened with chemicals such as lye? Some olives are artificially darkened with an iron compound called ferrous gluconate, and all canned olives are pasteurized (cooked). Our ripe, pitted Kalamata-style olives are sustainably grown and carefully harvested by hand to ensure superior taste. They are packed in pure water with fresh garlic, oregano, cayenne pepper and sea salt to provide an extraordinary olive experience.
Kalamata Olives have:
Vitamin A which may contribute to healthy immunity, vision, bone health and cell integrity
Vitamin E which may function as an antioxidant as well as contribute to healthy immunity and heart health
Calcium which may assist in supporting strong bones
Add Kalamata Olives to your favorite recipes or eat straight out of the jar. No salad is complete without olives. Chop them up and sprinkle them on your greens - delicious! At Sunfood we like to use olives as the "meat" of many dishes. The texture of olives is very satisfying and great for helping to get that "full" feeling.These olives combine well with any raw nut for a delicious party mix. After eating the olives, the lightly salted brine may be used as part of a delicious salad dressing.
For a real raw olive treat, use the brine from a jar of Kalamata Olives to any of our recipes for nut pates or spreads in place of water. Add Botija Olive Oil or Sacha Inchi Oil to this combination for a delectable, savory spread with a hint of garlic and a touch of heat from the cayenne.
