Yokneam, Israel (PRWEB) March 30, 2009
Dr. Eger (http://www.doctor-eger.com), a provider of healthy olive based products, announced today the launch of new and healthy olive oil spreads. Targeted for the American Baby Boomers market, Dr. Eger Spreads are a wonderful substitute for margarine, butter and shortening. They supply a balanced composition of fatty acids that is essential to our diet. With Dr. Eger's Olive Oil Spreads, Americans can regain and maintain a healthier life style.
Dr. Eger spreads come in a variety of flavors including: natural, garlic, basil, oregano, lemon and non-dairy butter. The spreads include functional ingredients such as Omega-3 fatty acids to preserve and provide great health benefits.
"We have worked for over a decade to develop healthy olive oil products" said Dr. Shaul Eger, founder and CEO of Dr. Eger. "Studies have demonstrated that people in Mediterranean countries are often healthier due to their high olive oil consumption. Our Olive Oil Spreads are a tasty way to promote the consumption of olive oil in the US and Europe."
Dr. Eger Spreads are manufactured using a patented oil solidification process, which retains their original properties of all of the ingredients. The spreads are all natural solidified oils:
- Artificial preservatives free
- Trans fatty acids free
- With no hydrogenation
The olive oil spreads are based on an innovative, patented technology developed by Dr. Eger with collaboration with Professor Ishak Neeman, an Associate Professor at the Department of Food Engineering and Biotechnology at the Technion Institue of Technology in Haifa, Israel. Their joint research led to the development of a unique technology for solidification of oils, which is water free, preservatives free, trans fatty acids free. It enables stable solidification of olive oil at room temperature and most important - preserves the natural composition and characteristics of the fatty acids and the micro ingredients of the oil.
