Spiced & Pitted Black Botija Olives Organic Raw 8 oz Packet
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.
These carefully hand-picked, delicious and moist olives are a great snack and a Sunfood staff favorite. Dusted with organic oregano, tarragon, bay leaf, sea salt, and just enough Peruvian hot pepper to satisfy your craving for heat, you may be tempted to eat the entire bag
Suggested Use As a dietary supplement 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. - Or as directed by your healthcare professional.
