Olive Powder

Olive Powder

Olive powder is produced from semi-defatted and de-stoned olives and is the latest innovation in olive Products in the World. The manufacturing process is non-destructive and preserves the natural nutraceutical compounds in the olives. Olive powder is the authentic “olive alternative” and is made from 100% olive fruit.

Olive powder contains high percentages of nutraceutically active compounds such as antioxidants. These include, oleic acid, polyphenols, tocopherols, chlorophylls and squalene, which are beneficial for human health.

Olive powder can be used as a natural ingredient in many food applications, including bread, pasta and soups. Addition of olive powder improves the functional and sensory properties of the food. Furthermore, olive powder is rich in antioxidants, which help prevent cancer and reduce oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL), implicated in the development of cardiovascular disease. Olive powder contains a high percentage of dietary fibre, which can benefit the human digestive system.

It is highly likely that olive powder will become a staple bulk ingredient because it is a “wellness” ingredient and it has an excellent consumer image of olives.
