Are olive pits poisonous?
Olive pits are not poisonous. Many birds and other animals eat olives off the tree. The pits are primarily lignin, a major component of wood. If you ate one it would probably go through you undisturbed. When making olive oil, the olives, including pits, are ground to fragments before the oil is extracted, without any detriment to the oil.
