Why You’ll Love Organic Green Olives Pitted
Health food lovers these days constantly talk about olive oil and how good it is for the body. But while there’s little doubt that olive oil is a healthy mainstay, it’s important not to overlook the olive itself. Divina Organic Green Pitted Olives can serve as a healthy snack or delicious recipe ingredient, and are made to the highest standards of excellence.
With a history dating back more than 5,000 years, olives originated in the area around the Mediterranean before being brought to North America in the 1500s to 1700s. Today, the richest source of olives remains areas like Spain, Crete, Greece, and Syria.
The olive itself is not only historically important as a food source, but also one of the most widely eaten foods—about 25 million acres of olive trees are found around the world, and Spain alone produces more than 6 million tons of them each year. The fruit is bitter when initially picked, and must go through a multi-step process in order to provide the products you eventually receive. Like so, Divina Organic Green Pitted Olives are derived from green olives, and are picked in a slightly unripened state before being cured, brined, and packaged.
Benefits of olives
Olives have a wide range of nutrients, and for years the Mediterranean Diet has been connected with things like decreased risk of osteoporosis, improved heart health, and even weight loss. The wide range of phytonutrients and antioxidants founds in olives are the key source of most of these benefits. Here are some of the biggest reasons that Divina Organic Green Pitted Olives are worth adding to your diet.
- The phytonutrient known as hydroxytyrosol has been connected to cancer prevention, and some studies have found that ingestion of higher levels of it could help reduce the likelihood of developing cancers.
- Additional studies have found that hydroxytyrosol has also been connected to increased bone strength. The compound helps increase calcium levels in the bones and decreased loss of bone mass.
- Olives have also been shown to block histamine receptors in cells. This can help to reduce inflammation related problems that are connected to allergies. Those who suffer from things like seasonal allergies could find relief from a diet rich in anti-inflammatories, like those found in olives.
- Divina Organic Green Pitted Olives are made up of 15 percent fats, and of that 74 percent is known as oleic acid. This compound is a monounsaturated fatty acid, which is the primary ingredient in olive oil. Oleic acid has been connected to a reduced risk of heart disease and increased heart health as well as decreased inflammation in the body.
- That same oleic acid could also help the body regulate cholesterol levels more effectively, balancing good and bad cholesterol and promoting better overall cardiovascular health.
- Divina Organic Green Pitted Olives are also very high in vitamin E content. This powerful antioxidant can help protect body tissues from damage, improve eye health, and improve heart health while decreasing blood pressure.
- The levels of iron in olives are also very high, which can help improve the amount of oxygen that red blood cells contain and promote better overall health.
- Antioxidants found in Divina Organic Green Pitted Olives can help to reduce the chance of developing infections, particularly in the stomach or in the airways.
- The high levels of phytonutrients in olives also provide a boost to immune system health, making it easier to fight against free radicals and helping improve mood and physical wellbeing.
The bottom line is that the antioxidants and the high nutritional content found in Divina Organic Green Pitted Olives makes them a great choice for promoting better health. Add them to daily dietary plans and combine them with other Mediterranean foods to get the fullest benefits from them.
The Divina difference
The Mediterranean diet is centuries old, and those in the region still eat a wide range of the same foods their ancestors did.

From peppers to roasted tomatoes to their numerous olive products including their Organic Green Pitted Olives, Divina provides the best in regional ingredients for those looking for fresh, delicious foods.
Other great products from Divina
Olives may be one of the foundations of a healthy Mediterranean based diet, but they’re not the only options. In addition to Divina Organic Green Pitted Olives, Divina also offers a number of products that are worth adding to a pantry.
The world’s favorite sandwich pepper, pepperoncini, provides sweet flavor and just the right amount of heat. They’re great for salads, sandwiches, antipasto platters and more. Best of all, Divina sources them from local farms in Greece that produce the highest quality peppers and use traditional farming methods.
Picked at the peak of ripeness for the richest flavor and then roasted over an open flame, these organic peppers are great for a wide range of recipes or on their own.
Kalamata olives are known for their rich taste and their deep dark color. Grown without pesticides and processed naturally, they are created using traditional methods that show in their taste.
Plump and pitted, these olives are stuffed with delicious blue cheese to add a bold element to their taste. They’re a perfect snack and great as part of an antipasto platter.

A Fine Product
No complaints. Nothing amazing but not bad either. It does not blow away other olives as far as flavor but at least it is organic, so, there's something to be said for that.

Best Olives I've Ever Eaten!
I bought these at my local health food store, Earth Origins. While the price was $2 more than this site, I thought it was worth it because it was organic. They became my addiction. But about my fourth jar, I got a bad one, where the olives were mushy. Must have been an old jar or something. So, due to the price, I thought I would stay away for awhile until the stock changed. I would like to find these at a lower price, and now I have found it. They are truly fantastic!

Best Green Olives ever
I really, really enjoyed these olives. I have never tasted olivees from Greece before and these were and are very addictive. I plan on ordering a lot more of these. Please keep these readily available.
Tasty, very tasty.
I don't care about the flavor at all. Thankfully my 3yo isn't picky as long as their olives, and at least they're organic and better than most other options at the store. I was excited about these, but I'll have to keep looking. Same with their organic kalamata olives :-/
These olives are delicious! This is our third time ordering them and they are yummy to snack on, good in salads and over pasta! Yay! we are big fans.
This jar does not last in my house, it's that good. I wish it came larger!
Organis green olives
I love the fact that I can get organic olives. I don't have a lot of options where I live so this I will continue to order. Taste great.
These are the best olives,soft and very mild.

ALL OF THE OLIVES
alternated between stuffing my face with these olives and slicing them and putting them on pizza. both work great
I thought olives were olives. But, these are so much better than what I had been eating!
So flavorful and delicious. Best olives I have ever tasted. And I love that they are pesticide free and organic.
I cleaned out the jar within a few days of buying this if that says anything.
Delightful! I love the simple ingredients.
Cheap and soooo good
I'm eating them directly in the pot
I love olives but the brands in stores always have added ingredients that are so un-necessary. These taste great with minimal ingredients. I love it!
Not as briny as most store olives but very good quality and flavor.
- LINDA M LUNDGREN
Yep. We ate them all. Nice flavor and not too salty like other olives we've tried.
I love these olives!
These green olives are delicious, and they have a wonderful texture as well. The only green olives I love more than these are Divina's sweet pepper stuffed green olives.

Organic Green Olives Pitted
Good - This is my 2nd time I ordered. It's a little on the salty side.
The Best Olives Ever
These are SO GOOD. They're crunchy (in a good way) and taste amazing. My three year old ate the entire jar in two days, not wanting to share with me! I'm stocking up.
Our favorite olive
We love these olives! They are the only ones we eat. I only wish they were cheaper so we could have them more often.
My dad even liked them!
And he is a picky one. These are firm and tasty and large in size. Olives like this are hard to find.
Good staple to have
Love having these jars around. Perks up my salads and pastas. Second best to fresh.
These are Great!
These are Great olives! I eat them by themselves with a toothpick and they work well on homemade pizza! Rich, buttery/salty taste and smooth texture these also make a great snack!
These are, by far, the best green olives I've ever tasted. Great as an appetizer or just a lil snack.
Fantastic for appetizers
I usually buy olives to serve as appetizers because I do a lot of hosting for parties and small events in my job as an event caterer. These are the best olives out there when it comes to pitted olives. They are made from premium organic olives, and they have a big, flavorful taste. Crunchy, substantial and with just the right amount of salt, these are perfect for a variety of appetizers or just speared with a toothpick and eaten alone.

Found It On Thrive
These are insanely hard to find - and that's because they're so good. They have the perfect mixture between tasty and salty, and I love them. I wanted to order them online, but prices at most stores were way too much, so I've been driving over an hour to purchase these. Not anymore! Thrive has the lowest price I've seen before, and I can order some anytime I want. Super excited.
- Joshua Ellington
I love olives but I don't love the pits. I am extremely happy with these olives. I love that I don't have to pit them or deal with the pits at all because they are already pitted for me. They taste amazing and I like to snack on them all the time. I occasionally slice some up and throw them on a sandwich too, but they are great all by themselves.
