Description

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 olives are picked when ripe and only cured using traditional and natural methods, such as sea salt brining and oil curing.

Our ripe black Moroccan-style olives are sustainably grown and hand selected to provide wonderful taste. Packed in pure water with fresh garlic, cayenne pepper, oregano and sea salt, these 100% natural olives are an amazing source of healthy oleic acid and provide vitamins A and E, calcium and iron.

Olives are naturally high in beautifying oleic acid, and are also one of nature's richest sources of the antioxidant Vitamin E. Olives are champion mucus dissolvers, easily beating out figs and oranges. This makes them not only a delicious snack, but also an excellent food for internal cleansing. Olives are a staple among the staff at Sunfood! Enjoy some of the Best Olives Ever!

Benefits

Olives are technically a fruit! In fact, they are one of the most mineral rich fruits on Earth. Olives are especially high in calcium and magnesium which help to build strong bones. They also contain vitamins A and E and the beautifying, heart healthy oleic acid. Olives also contain protein and compounds called polyphenols which display anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. Plus, olives are known as the most powerful mucus dissolver of any fruit. Too much mucus in your system can cause that cold/flu-like feeling of being clogged and stuffy with puffy eyes and dulled senses. Regular consumption of olives can help to clear out excess mucus and lift the fog.

Some people worry about the fat content of olives, but they contain monounsaturated fats which are much healthier than the trans fats or saturated fats found in other foods. Our bodies need fats to strengthen cell membranes, beautify the skin and lubricate our joints and intestines. Olives are a delicious source of healthy and alkaline plant-based fats.

Suggested Use

No salad is complete without olives. Pit them, chop them up and sprinkle them on your greens. At Sunfood we like to use olives as the "meat" of many dishes. The texture of olives is very satisfying and is great for helping those new to raw foods get that "full" feeling. In fact, olives contain a protein-to-fat ratio that is similar to red meat, but none of the cholesterol.

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. 

The bold, complex flavor of our Moroccan Olives perfectly complements our mild, smooth, totally raw, organic cashews.

For a real raw olive treat, pour the brine from a jar of Moroccan Olives into a jar of Peruvian Olives. The sun-dried Peruvian Olives will soak up the flavors of the Moroccan Olives, making a totally new batch of raw, spicy olives!

These buttery olives are a real treat, and to me taste like a lovely hybrid between the Greek Sunfood olives and the kalamata Sunfood olives. Try some - you won't be disappointed! (Posted on 12/9/13)

I have eaten more olives than the average bear in my lifetime (wait...do bears eat olives?) & these are truly the best olives I have ever, ever eaten. Everyone who I have let try one...because I'm not willing to give up more than one...has adored them too! This is an outstanding product and it's time to order MORE! Thank you so much for stocking these! (Posted on 2/9/12)

I love these olives! I can eat a whole jar within a few days. They are rich and buttery. I like them for breakfast or an afternoon snack - chilies, garlic, and all. (Posted on 10/6/11)
