A l`Olivier Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spreads
Have you ever tried to mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar to make the perfect spread for bread? Now Extra Virgin Olive Oil is available as a spread! The olive oil experts at Ã€ l`Olivier have been "perfuming" olive oils for over 10 years, and have now created a spreadable version. Flavors include Natural, Garlic & Herbs, Lemon and Basil.
This patented innovation from France combines the health advantages of Mediterranean olive oil with savory flavours and a unique texture.
Ã€ l`Olivier Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spreads are a healthy alternative to butter and margarine. They are 100% natural and contain no additives, colorants, preservatives or chemicals. Rich in monounsaturated fat acids (69%) and with less than 25% of saturated fat, they fit nutritionists` recommendations for proper fat intake. Thanks to the solid texture, they can replace butter or margarine in cooking or as condiments.
I agree that Bottles of oil can be messy at parties and difficult to proportion in cooking. These compact spreads come in convenient flat plastic containers. They are shelf stable, but are best kept in the butter case or refrigerator to maintain a solid texture. The spreads have a shelf life of 12 months.
Their applications are limitless. Serve them on breakfast bagels or anywhere else you use butter or margarine-in an omelette, toasted on crostini, spread on sandwiches instead of mayonnaise, and for sautÃ©eing or frying meats, fish, or vegetables.
