Innovative line of Healthy Butter Improvements Always Free of Partially Hydrogenated Oils

11/12/2013 / SubmitMyPR /

MELT® Organic spreads, North America’s first line of healthy butter improvements made with virgin coconut oil, endorses the recent move by the FDA to ban use of all hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils, or Trans Fats, in food products. MELT’s healthy butter substitutes have always been trans fat free reflecting the brand’s commitment to providing pure, organic products that are truly good for you. While the FDA’s recent announcement acknowledging that trans fats are not safe for food may send many brands across the food industry scrambling to reformulate their recipes, it will continue to be smooth sailing for MELT Organic and its entire line of healthy butter improvements.

“The scientific community has been providing evidence of the link between trans fats and an increased risked of heart disease for many decades.” said Cygnia Rapp, MELT Organic’s founder and chief science officer. “Fortunately for consumers there are companies like MELT Organic that have not needed a ruling from the FDA to know that food should actually be good for you. That is why we have carefully chosen the healthiest organic fruit- and plant-based oils for our perfect blend of good fats.”

Each variety of MELT Organic healthy butter improvement is made from the Perfect Blendtm of the healthiest fruit and plant-based organic oils featuring organic virgin coconut oil as the primary ingredient because it is a rich source of Medium Chain Fatty Acids (the ‘good fats’), that your body burns as energy instead of storing as fat.

In addition to being trans fat free, MELT Organic’s line of all-natural butter substitutes are gluten free, soy free, dairy or lactose free, and do not contain any artificial colors or flavors.

MELT is now available in nearly 5,000 stores in North America. Rich & Creamy MELT Organic and Honey MELT Organic are sold in 13-ounce packages, with 80 calories and 9g of fat per serving. MSRP is $4.99 for all varieties. Visit MELT Buttery Spread for tips and recipes for baking healthy treats with MELT Organic spreads.
