Unsalted Olives – How Salty Are They?
Olives are an integral component of Mediterranean diet and have numerous health advantages, but not all olives are created equal; some have significantly higher sodium levels than others.
To create your own unsalted olives, start by heating some water. Next, slowly add salt until an egg floats on top.
Early Life and Education
Olives found on supermarket shelves have typically been transported directly from trees, harvested, and processed chemically for trade use. While this process eliminates bitterness and prolongs shelf life, it also alters some of their flavor characteristics that would be present otherwise.
As soon as you’ve harvested olives yourself, place them into an adequate container to hold all of them (they may float), filling it with cold water and periodically changing out this solution so as to prevent bacteria growth and spoilage of your olives.
Soak olives for 14 days to get them ready to consume. At this stage, they should be suitable for baby-led weaning – we suggest offering slices to toddlers as part of this process so they can learn to take accurate bites while simultaneously practicing chewing properly on round foods like olives.
Achievement and Honors
Olives contain phenolic compounds known for their health-protective benefits, so our unsalted olives retain these phenols unlike conventional trade preparation methods which remove them by brining. This allows you to enjoy delicious olives while simultaneously lowering blood pressure, arterial plaque and bad cholesterol levels.
Sensory testing was conducted on green natural olives after 150 days of fermentation with and without salt, with judges preferring those samples containing lower NaCl concentration exhibiting less salty characteristics.
The same research group assessed the effect of adding zinc chloride to brine on the quality of fermented olives . Sensory descriptors were evaluated, while MSA was employed to identify which attributes best fit sample discrimination.
Olives do not naturally contain salt – all the sodium they contain comes from curing process, which most commonly utilizes lye (sodium hydroxide). Although some brands offer low-sodium olives, these usually do not use as effective methods without using lye to create flavorful olives.

Fresh olives can be extremely bitter and inedible, so to remove their unpleasant acridity they need to be cured using salt as part of this process.
Salt levels vary among olive brands, with some having higher sodium concentrations than others. But low sodium olives such as Sakellaropoulos Organic Farm’s “Thrombes” black olive variety do exist – one such example being “Thrombes”, which uses an unrivaled method to produce an intense tasting experience with subtle marjoram, aromatic oregano and authentic rosemary flavors.
