VidaViva Ecofood’s olives with fine herbs are made from organic olives from the island of La Palma (Canary Islands), a world biosphere reserve and known as La Isla Bonita (The Beautiful Island) for its beauty and diversity of landscapes.
The agricultural areas are located especially in the town of Tijarafe, at an altitude of 270m to 800m and in areas with quite favorable agroecological conditions. After the 2021 volcanic eruption has affected our plantations and crops, we hope that all the nutrient-rich ash, along with the island’s clean air, unparalleled mountains and water, and many hours of sunlight will help improve production and the quality of our raw material.
After being harvested by hand, the olives undergo a first quality control, which is carefully selected by hand to eliminate olives that are considered deficient due to defects. Then, these olives are soaked in brine until they lose their bitterness and acquire the flavor we want for our recipe.
Finally, the olives are rinsed several times, the unsuitable olives are removed and all the other ingredients are added according to the recipe to finally obtain natural, healthy, tasty and nutritious olives. They are hand-packed in glass jars that undergo a pasteurization process.
Properties and benefits
Properties of olives
Olives are a source of fiber, monounsaturated fatty acids, vitamins (A and E) and minerals. The fat content of olives is high, but they are healthy fats, since they are mostly monounsaturated fats rich in oleic acid (omega-9) and, although in smaller quantities, they also contain omega-3 and omega-6.
