Blue Band and Rama products, from margarine spreads and cooking fats to cream alternatives and cheese spreads, have been a daily source of essential nutrients for families all over the world for decades.
Made from high quality vegetable oils, Blue Band/Rama contains essential fats and vital vitamins A, D and E.
International nutrition guidelines from the World Health Organization recognise the fact that people should minimise saturated fats and consume sufficient so-called ‘good fats’ – such as the Omega-3, Omega-6 and polyunsaturates found in margarine.
Experts also agree that for growing children, spreading soft margarine on bread is much better than spreading butter – which is high in saturated fat – and better than not spreading anything at all. Eating a nutritious breakfast in the morning with the right amount and the right kind of nutrients has been proven to enhance children’s ability to concentrate at school.
