Tasting like regular butter but with 28 percent less saturated fat, Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks are made with real butter and Smart Balance® Oil Blend as well as EPA/DHA & ALA Omega-3s and a naturally sourced ingredient that helps block the cholesterol in the butter.
"Many of our consumers want the taste and texture of real butter when cooking and baking," said Smart Balance Executive Vice President John Becker. "So we've taken the great taste of butter and added the benefits of our spreadable better butters; then we put them in a convenient stick form that's easy to measure and perfect for recipe making."
The Blended Butter Sticks have 0g trans fat and absolutely no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils. One serving of the butter provides 20 percent of the daily value of EPA/DHA Omega-3s and 10 percent of the daily value of ALA Omega-3s.
"Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks are a great option for those seeking to cook with real butter but in a heart healthier way," said Registered Dietitian Tammi Hancock.
The sticks are available in 8-ounce packages on grocery shelves nationwide. Other Smart Balance® better butters include Smart Balance® Butter & Canola Oil Blend, Smart Balance® Light Butter & Canola Oil Blend and Smart Balance® Butter & Canola and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Blend.
