Topic summary contributed by volunteer(s): Daniela and Linda

Olives, the fruit of the olive tree, have more nutrients than olive oil, just as all whole fruits tend to have more health benefits than their juices alone.  When olives are processed for their oil, the olive waste water is thrown out, and many water-soluble nutrients are lost. Unfortunately, since whole olives are preserved in brine with high salt content, the recommendation is to eat them in moderation.
