This trending green olive owns an irresistibly smooth, buttery flavor, but don’t be fooled by imposters! That bright green coloring isn’t natural, but a dye (that has been outlawed in many countries). Be wary of electric green hues and choose a natural Castelvetrano for snacking and serving.

IN THE KITCHEN
DID YOU KNOW…?
Beware of imposter Castelvetrano olives! Consider the shocking green hue of many Castelvetrano olives your warning sign. That electric green dye is not natural and, in fact, illegal. Often it’s not even included on the label. Natural Castelvetrano olives are pale, straw green—nothing neon about them.
