We've worked hard to develop a product that is better for you and tastes great. We're excited that the American Masters of Taste have awarded our efforts.
Boston, Mass. (PRWEB) August 31, 2009
Three Olivio products were recently awarded a Gold Medal by the American Masters of Taste as the best tasting Buttery Spread line. A panel of chefs from across the country conducted blind taste tests to determine the best-tasting products in the Buttery Spread Category.
All Olivio products have a rich, buttery taste from olive oil, are trans fat-free and do not contain any Partially Hydrogenated Oils.
Olivio's award-winning products include:
- Original Spread: Contains 400 mg of ALA Omega-3 per serving; highest in monounsaturated fat (4.5g of the good fat); no cholesterol and 70% less saturated fats than butter. Original spread is also ideal for cooking, baking and frying.
- Light Spread: Contains 250 mg of ALA Omega-3 per serving; highest in monounsaturated fats in the light segment (3g of the good fat); and half the fat and calories of butter.
- Spreadable Butter: An all-natural blend of real butter, with canola, olive, flax seed, and palm fruit oils; half the saturated fat and 1/3 the cholesterol of butter; 400 mg of ALA Omega-3 per serving and is also ideal for cooking, baking and frying.
"We're proud that the great taste of Olivio has been recognized by a panel of chefs," said company founder and President Ned Hentz. "We've worked hard to develop a product that is better for you and tastes great. We're excited that the American Masters of Taste have awarded our efforts."
Olivio Products can be purchased in the dairy section of many supermarkets across the country, including Publix, Kroger, Stop & Shop, Big Y, Shaw's, Raley's, HE Butts, Hannaford and Jewel to name just a few. The suggested retail price of Olivio Original Spread, Light Spread and Olivio Spreadable Butter is $2.29.
