Termite di Bitetto Olive:
The sweet "Termite di Bitetto" olive is also known as the Apple Olive. It is a typical olive of Puglia and has long been known for its special sensorial characteristics with its rich flavor, aroma, firm texture, rounded shape and predominantly green color.
The "Termite di Bitetto" variety is a native olive, as attested by old court and notary documents, one of which dates back to 1186 in the publication of Alfonso Gallo’s “Norman Diplomatic Code”. This document refers to the ownership of some plots of land around Bitetto, near Bari, and mentions several times “Termitum”, the Latin word used to refer to the variety of trees planted on this land.
Health Benefits of Olives:
Olives are a powerful and delicious fruit that can provide the human body with a wealth of health benefits including their ability to prevent bone loss, prevent various cancers, reduce inflammation and arthritis, improve digestion, soothe allergic reactions, improve blood circulation, protect against heart disease, boost cognitive function, defend against infections, and lower blood pressure.
Olives are perhaps best known in the Eastern Mediterranean region, and although they are now available throughout the world, this is the area where they first came to prominence, as well as in the northern regions of Iraq and Iran. They have been used for their culinary value and medicinal benefits for thousands of years, stretching all the way back to ancient times of Greece and Rome. The word “olive” is actually derived from those languages, and it appears in literature and history of countless Mediterranean empires and cultures. Olive oil gets a lot of attention because it is so functional in cooking, and is hailed as having a more concentrated form of nutrients than the olive fruit itself, but it is important not to overlook the massive health benefits that all olives possess.
There are many different species of olives, and some may have more or less of the important components that add to personal health, but they all possess certain elements that make them irreplaceable in a healthy diet. They are best when added to salads, sandwiches, or eaten as a salty snack or appetizer. Their oil is used in countless recipes, and the olive trees are sources of rich extracted oil and high-quality wood for construction. Basically, every part of the olive tree is important, and people around the world have valued it for thousands of years; they can’t all be wrong!
