    Do Pimentos have ground up pigs in them?

    My friend told me that she had heard that the little pimentos in green olives (which we adore!) have pork/lard in them. Does anyone know if this is true? Would you know of any links we could read? We don't eat pork so we are really wondering about this. Thanks in advance!

    A pimento is a pepper... not sure why it would have pork in it?

    The most I found was "An olive that has had its pit or stone removed is generally stuffed with an ingredient such as a pimiento, jalapeno, dried tomato, garlic or onion."

    They legally have to list the ingredients on the bottle of olives, what does it say on it besides "olives"?

    No mention of pork or lard anywhere I can find. I think your friend was either misinformed or pulling your leg. Either way, I think you're safe!
