According to the Ancient Greek tradition, Olives, the symbol of peace, where first planted at the Acropolis by the goddess Athena.
Our organic unsalted dried Greek olives are a unique olive product. Using only warm air (no preservatives, no chemicals, and no brine) we created a semi dried olive that is only comparable to the “Chamades”. Chamades are the olives that are left to ripen and dry while still attached to the olive tree in its natural environment.
Although these Chamades olives were only available in very limited quantities to the locals in the olive producing villages of Greece, using our own specialized technique we are able to provide the ultimate olive experience all year long to the lovers of genuine olives.
The usual process of brining olives in salt water to remove the bitterness also removes most of the olives’ naturally occurring phenols, known for their antioxidant properties. The main benefit of our unbrined olives is they retain all their phenols and potency. Olives can be eaten without fear of increased blood pressure, arterial plaque, or bad cholesterol.
Introduce these olives into your diet as a healthy snack, with a cheese platter, or in baked goods and reap the well documented benefits that a naturally processed olive can offer you.
