The beginning of the year is a perfect opportunity to create a healthier relationship with food. A turning point that calls for renewal and care through food, betting on a healthier and more stimulating diet. In this sense, table olives become a perfect ally to start eating healthier and with more awareness of its nutritional qualities and its unmistakable flavor.
A more serene and comforting diet goes through choosing suitable foods such as the versatile European olive. The fruit of the olive tree is a delicious and healthy option due to its many benefits, a “round” product that enhances foods such as chicken, beef, salmon, rice, fish, quinoa, pasta, octopus, hummus, chocolate or avocado.
In addition, it goes with movements such as “Mindful Eating” or “Slow Food,” which promote the dissemination of a new philosophy based on eating with more attention, combining pleasure and knowledge, claiming the origin and raw materials of healthy products such as the “Jewel of the Mediterranean diet.”
In this context, the wide horizon of gastronomic possibilities that it offers establishes interesting links with other foods. It can be found in an infinite number of formats (whole, chopped, sliced, boned …) and brings together the four flavors (bitter, acid, sweet and salty), which gives it incredible flexibility, making it a perfect harmonizer in innovative elaborations that transport you to the Mediterranean essence
Its integration in more than ninety preparations shows its versatility, quality and inimitable flavor. Differentiating attributes that make this gourmet product one of the most popular and distinctive snacks.
