  • High in flavour and monounsaturated fatty acids (otherwise known as “the good fats”) and low in carbs and calories. Olives are a filling, flavourful alternative to the usual snacks. No trans-fats, no cholesterol.
  • One serving has only 2.3 grams: that's only 3% of your total suggested fat intake per day! - one of the Five “Flat Belly Diet” foods: they are monounsaturated fatty acids, plant-based fats found in some of the world's most delicious foods--avocado, nuts and seeds, oils, olives, and dark chocolate! Studies show that these good-for-you fats enhance heart health and protect against chronic disease.
  • Olives are allergic to allergens. Meaning that they are naturally free of all wheat, soy, lactose and most any allergy-causing ingredient you can think of.
  • Olives prevent the oxidation of cholesterol in the body and thus, helps reduce the risk of having heart attack or stroke.
