Finlandia, Parsippany, N.J., launched two new premium spreadable butters, Spreadable Butter with Canola Oil and Spreadable Butter with Canola Oil 25% Reduced Fat.

New Finlandia Spreadable Butters with Canola Oil are crafted with pure, wholesome milk from family-owned farms in Finland and contain only four real ingredients—butter, canola oil, water and milk minerals, or ValSa, a patented milk mineral salt that lowers salt intake in butter.

Both spreadable butters will be available in the dairy section of grocery stores and supermarkets nationwide beginning this September.

“Excessive sodium consumption is the most significant risk factor in high blood pressure, the single biggest contributor to the reduction of life expectancy worldwide,” says Emma Aer, chief executive officer. “For years, the food industry has sought ways to reduce sodium content without compromising taste. After years of R&D, our team at Valio has solved that dilemma through our innovative ValSa milk mineral salt process. Now, our customers can enjoy the full, delicious, buttery taste of Finlandia spreadable butters with significantly less sodium than the others.” 

Finlandia spreadable butters come in 8- and 15-ounce tubs.
