Diet Detective’s Calorie Bargains: Reduced Salt olives

By Charles Platkin, PhD

Diet Detective’s : Reduced Salt

Calorie Bargain: Musco Family Olive Co. Pearls and Early California Reduced Salt olives

in two varieties

The Why: The Large Black Ripe Olives contain 25 percent less than regular black olives. The imported-from-Spain Pimiento Stuffed Manzanilla Olives have 75 percent less sodium than their conventional counterparts.

The Bonus: The lower sodium is important, (see: http://www.cspinet.org/salt/) especially in the stuffed olives.

What We Liked Best: Olives are healthy, and you don’t have to give up taste to lower your sodium intake. But keep in mind that four olives have 25 calories, so don’t go crazy.

The Price: Large Black Ripe Olives are $1.79 per 6-ounce can. The Pimiento Stuffed Manzanilla Olives have a suggested retail price of $1.98 for a 5.75-ounce jar.
