Calories per olive


The amount of calories per olive depends on how big the olives are and what their oil content is. The large black canned olives are actually quite low in oil - sometimes only 7%, which is why they are table olives and are not used generally to make oil. Some smaller olives used primarily for oil making can have up to 35% oil content. Olives can range from 1 to 14 grams in weight.

There is about 1 tablespoon of olive oil (and about 120 calories) in:

- 20 medium Mission olives that have an oil content of 20%

- 40 small ripe black olives

- 20 jumbo ripe black olives

- 7 super colossal ripe black olives.
