Black olives

These are ripe olives (green olives are harvested before they are ripe) picked between November and December.

Salt

Used sparingly, this essential ingredient helps bring out food's natural flavours.

Malted flour

Obtained by milling and toasting Italian wheat, it is used to improve flavour and aroma and gives products a beautiful golden crust.

Non-hydrogenated vegetable oils

These are used instead of hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils as they don't have a tendency to increase “bad” or LDL cholesterol counts.

Flour

Carefully selected cereals produce the best flour, which is able to withstand slow processing and slow proving, providing superior product texture.
