Once we have extracted the oil from the sunflowers and canola oil, we mix them in the factory with heated palm oil. By heating the palm oil a little it becomes liquid and can easily be mixed. We add a bit of citric acid to keep the oils fresh and to give a neutral taste. The recipe also has natural flavors for true Flora flavor, carotene for a beautiful color and vitamins.
In order to guarantee a responsible intake of fat per portion, the Flora Original recipe is partly based on water. Fat and water normally do not mix as easily and that is why we need sunflower lecithin to connect the two together.The mixing process is done at the factory in special cylinders that slowly let the oil mixture cool while it is being stirred, resulting in a beautifully smooth spread.
From these cylinders the spread is placed in tubs, all of which are covered with cling film and a lid, ready to go to the store.
