Posted by AFN Staff Writers on 9th March 2016


Unilever has launched a new range that blends its Flora margarine with butter.


The range includes a salted version and a salt-reduced option. Both products are made by combining butter and sunflower seed oil.


Unilever says its two new spreads a have 40 per cent less saturated fat than regular butter.


Flora has been sold by Unilever since 1964. At the time margarine was considered a butter substitute. In those days, consumers and medical specialists were concerned about the level of saturated fats in butter.


Flora with Butter is available now from supermarkets across Australia.
