Are MEDITERRANEAN ORGANIC olives cured in dye or lye?


Our olives undergo natural brine curing but before that they are treated with lye. Lye treatment is used to make a quick start with the curing by facilitating the de-bittering of the olives and give the product uniformity in color. Olives are thoroughly washed after the treatment to remove any traces of lye.
