Hello Olives!!

The olive fruit is a drupe which contains bitter component – oleuropein , low sugar content (2.6-6%) and high oil content (12-30%). Being a  distinctive characteristic of the olive, Oleuropein, however, has to be removed due to its strong bitter taste which makes it almost impossible to consume olives directly from the tree, therefore, they have to undergo a series of processes:

  • Oil curing – olives are soaked in oil for several months;
  • Water curing – olives are rinsed and soaked in water solution multiple times during several months;
  • Brine curing – olives are soaked in brine for up to 6 months;
  • Dry curing – olives are stored in salt for up to 6 months.
