Another innovation found at the SIAL in Paris: Solid olive oil to spread. The spread makes a tasty additive to your sandwich. An healthy (and tasty) alternative to use instead of butter!
Implications - The rise of foodie culture has influenced a new wave of artisanal condiments and meal accompaniments that dress up bread and sandwiches in a clever way. This spreadable olive oil gives diners the heart-healthy benefits of fruit and vegetable oil in a consistency that can effectively replace butter. Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by exploring the scientific properties of healthy foods and reworking them into new forms that will appeal to niche diners and consumers.
