I honestly have no idea, but seeing as how they are grown and not like chips, they are a lot healthier, but I do not know their exact health additions.

Apparently they are good enough for you to start a discussion topic on them. I love black olives, I don't know what benefits they have other than that I love to eat them on taco salad and on pizza.

I read somewhere that olives are good for the health of your ovaries and other reproductive organs in women. Do a search online to get the details. Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

Well thats got me good and proper!!LOL I think I have only had olives on a pizza. I suppose because they make olive oil out of them and that is meant to be very good for you, the adverts on the telly are always saying that people in Italy and the Medretion live longer cos of the olive oil. Well thats all I can think off! Hope that helps you
