eating less than kezayit

Question connected to previous about eating less than kezait. Can he in that case rely on opinion that kezait is like our olives (3-5 gr.)?


One who must always eat less than a shiur and will not have the opportunity to say bracha achrona may rely on the small shiur close to a present day olive to say a bracha achrona. This should not be at 3-5 gram, but at a minimum of about 10 gram. [If possible he should eat 17 gram which is a third of the common present day egg, if this is not possible he may rely on the above].
