Olives are an important ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, one of the healthiest, if not the healthiest, cuisines in the world.
They are rich in minerals - 100 g of fruit contains approximately: 15 mg of magnesium, 16 mg of sulfur, 7 mg of phosphorus, 44 mg of potassium, 54 mg of calcium, 0.06 mg of manganese, 0.48 mg of copper, 0.59 mg of iron, 0.25 mg of zinc, as well as B vitamins, provitamin A and vitamin C. They are a good source of vitamin E, known as the vitamin of youth. The antioxidants contained in olives neutralize free radicals present in the body and thus contribute to reducing the risk of cancer. They also lower the level of "bad" cholesterol in the blood. A valuable component of olives is fiber, which accelerates intestinal peristalsis, improves digestion and gives you a quick feeling of fullness.
The first olive groves were created in Greece over 3500 years BC. Olives were the basis of the diet, an ingredient of religious rituals, a raw material for the production of cosmetics, and their twigs were a symbol of victory and fertility. Ellis Farm's green olives come from the family's olive grove that has been cultivated for six generations in Crete in the Agia Varvara region near Heraklion.
