Becel thought one way it could help the 1 in 2 Canadian consumers
who aren’t sure how to incorporate avocados into their diets was to launch Becel with Avocado Oil.
Becel with Avocado Oil is low in saturated fat, has no trans fats, and provides a source of essential omega-3 polyunsaturated fat. It also does not contain artificial preservatives, flavours or colours.
The company says the product is made from a blend of plant and seed oils, including Canadian canola oil and avocado oil, as well as a few other ingredients including buttermilk powder, water and a pinch of salt.
Becel with Avocado Oil can be used as a direct 1:1 substitution for butter, resulting in dishes that will have 80 per cent less saturated fat.
The company celebrated the launch of the product in September with a pop up restaurant in Toronto called Avo Alley.
