Olives during pregnancy

If there's one thing that's as coveted during pregnancy as the last seat on the bus, it's reliable information about what you can and can't eat. Among the many foods discussed during pregnancy are olives - those small but delicious fruits of the Mediterranean.

The green and black heroes during pregnancy

The pregnant gourmet goddess often stands in front of the supermarket shelf and asks herself: Can I have this?
Here we can say a relaxed "yes". Olives are not only safe during pregnancy, but can even be recommended as long as certain precautions are taken (more on this below). The Mediterranean fruit is packed with natural nutrients and vitamins that benefit both mother and child. They also contain antioxidants, which make olives a source of protective nutrients. The fruit is also rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which not only protect the cardiovascular system, but also ensure that cholesterol levels remain calm - similar to a Buddha in a meditative pose.

In addition to healthy fats, olives are a valuable source of B vitamins, which play a key role in a healthy diet. The folic acid (vitamin B9) content is particularly noteworthy. This vitamin is of crucial importance during pregnancy as it supports embryonic cell regeneration and cell division. Sufficient consumption of folic acid is essential to cover the increased requirement during this sensitive phase, making olives an excellent addition to the diet of expectant mothers.

Safety when buying olives:

During pregnancy, it is particularly important to pay attention to the origin and processing of the olives. Fresh olives straight from the counter should be avoided as they can harbour a risk of toxoplasmosis and listeria. These pathogens are particularly dangerous for the unborn baby. Instead, organic pickled olives packed in jars are a safe choice as they are free from harmful pesticides and contaminants.

In our range you will find a large selection of the green and black heroes of pregnancy. Our olives are all about quality and unique flavour, and MANI organic olives are produced according to strict standards. They are fermented and unpasteurised, which gives them a first-class raw food quality. During harvesting, the olives are gently treated and debittered, preserving their unmistakable flavour while retaining all their valuable nutrients. Pickled in olive oil, in brine or completely natural with herbs - MANI olives provide a wonderful Mediterranean flavour experience at any time

Storage and consumption:

Opened olives should be consumed within a week to ensure freshness and safety. (TIP: Once the jar has been opened, cover the olives with olive oil. This extends the shelf life considerably).

Be careful with stuffed olives:
Special attention should be paid to stuffed olives. Pregnant women should avoid stuffed olives, especially those with raw milk cheese. These may contain listeria, which increases the risk of serious infections.


Olives can be not only safe but even recommended during pregnancy, as long as certain precautions are taken. With their help, the expectant mother can fulfil her nutritional needs, indulge her palate and do something good for the environment at the same time. The organic olives from Protos Mediterranean Specialities offer the perfect blend of taste, quality and safety.

So the next time you're standing in front of the olive shelf wondering whether you can have some, remember: olives are the superheroes of pregnancy. Trust in the power of the Greek sun, which is in every olive from Mani Bläuel, and experience how your pregnancy cravings are satisfied in style.

Finally, a little tip: try our olives outside of the Greek salad - for example in a savoury baked dish or as a sophisticated side dish for your next pregnancy brunch. Because variety is the key to enjoyment, and we at Protos Mediterranean Specialities are here to accompany you on your culinary journey.
