Olives ... a superfood that you must include in your diet!!!

The concept of "superfood" is increasingly used by nutritionists, chefs and lovers of healthy living. Foods with a high concentration of vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants and healthy fats are known as superfoods. They are very interesting foods due to their nutritional potential and the benefits they bring to our health if we include them in our diet. Examples of superfoods are extra virgin olive oil, legumes, quinoa, broccoli, turmeric, ginger or avocado ..

The Mediterranean diet, for its variety and richness, includes some of these superfoods, and among them is the olive.

Do you know all the benefits of olives?

  • Ideal to prevent cardiovascular diseases, since they are useful for lowering high cholesterol (LDL) levels, thanks to the fact that they protect from the oxidation of bad cholesterol, preventing its hardening and accumulation in the arteries.
  • Rich in vitamins, water and minerals.
  • A perfect antioxidant to fight against body aging and oxidation.
  • The perfect appetizer, since they contain fewer calories than we have been led to believe and their high fiber intake makes them perfect for inclusion in diets to lose weight. Fiber also improves gastrointestinal health and improves constipation.
  • Help counteract anemia, due to its iron content.
  • Perfect for beauty treatments.

Recommendations for healthy consumption.

A balanced diet based on healthy food, exercise and water is essential for all the benefits to act in our body. The recommended daily intake of olives is a serving of about 5 to 7 olives.

Table olives harvesting campaign has started

Since the last days of September Montegil is busy with the new campaign, several weeks of work that we face with optimism.

The late rains and the beginning of summer with mild temperatures, has caused that this year, the olive harvesting campaign is delayed some weeks. Officially the campaign began on September 1, but the weather conditions of this spring / summer have caused the maturation of the green olive to be delayed. It has been in these last weeks when the green olive has reached its maximum size and its optimal state for harvesting.

The campaign begins with the harvest of the Queen olive variety, which is the first to be ready for collection and is followed by the Manzanilla variety. The olives destined to produce our extra virgin olive oil will be harvested during the month of November, the perfect moment to have one of the extra virgin oils with more quality and flavor of the market.

Once the olive is harvested, following the traditional method known as "verdeo", we are dedicated to selecting the best fruits, according to their size, color, state of maturation, etc. From this moment, olives are processed in order to be ready to prepare our fillings and seasoning of our olives, taking care of the whole process so that they retain all the flavor and nutritional properties of this nurishing fruit.

Montegil is pioneer in the use of PET heat sealing for the packaging of olives, technology that we also apply to other preserved vegetable foods, such as citrus, for domestic use or food service.
