Olives need to undergo a curing process before they’re ready to eat, due to the bitterness of oleuropein. If you’ve accidentally bitten into a raw olive, you are familiar with the bitterness that follows.
In celebration of the Absa Top 10 Olive Oil Awards, we decided to highlight 10 of the most important health benefits related to Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
In 2013 Absa and SA Olive partnered to introduce the Top 5 as an addition to the annual SA Olive Awards.
SA Olive is committed to supporting a healthy future, i.e. ensuring a healthy future for its members, healthy growth and development for the industry and a healthy lifestyle for all South Africans.
