What Is Margarine and How Is it Made?
People often wonder “how is margarine made?” The best margarines are made of naturally sourced plant-based oils, water, sea salt, carrot juice for colour and a couple of other naturally derived ingredients. In fact, margarine like Planta is so natural, you could even make it at home. But luckily you don’t have to! Because Planta has already done that for you.
Planta not only gives you the convenience of a ready-made and delicious margarine, but also can help your children nurture to their full potential with a daily dose of Planta, enriching them with 9 vitamins: A, D, E, B1, B2, B6, B12, Folic Acid and Niacin. These vitamins help maintain healthy vision, skin, hair, and nails, support bone growth, and also play an important role in the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
When it comes to taste, Planta is ideal for any and all types of dishes you make at home; be it spreading, grilling, soups and sauces, stir fry or baking. It’s your partner to make breakfast, lunch, dinner or even snacking more nutritious and tastier.
What Is Margarine?
Margarine is a natural plant oil-based fat spread that was created over 150 years ago as a healthier and tastier alternative to dairy butter. It is made with all naturally sourced ingredients so much so that if you wanted to, you could even make your own margarine at home, using plant-based oils and a few other kitchen cupboard ingredients. But homemade margarine doesn’t contain the added nutrition such as 9 vitamins: A, D, E, B1, B2, B6, B12, Folic Acid and Niacin.
How Is Margarine Made?
From our kitchen to yours… The process of making margarine is simple, but it requires a bit of skill and some high-quality ingredients.
To start, blend natural oils such as Palm Oil and Palm Kernel Oil. These oils are high in healthy fats and provide the smooth and creamy texture that we all love in Planta. You can use a high-speed hand mixer or an ice cream maker to blend the oils thoroughly and create an ultra-smooth texture.
Once the oils are blended, you can add a pinch of salt and a squeeze of lemon to enhance the flavour. We also recommend adding carrot juice to give margarine its signature golden colour. This natural colourant not only adds beauty to the spread, but it also provides additional vitamins and nutrients.
Finally, churn and mix the ingredients with a blender or a bit of elbow grease until you achieve the perfect consistency. The result is a delicious and creamy spread that can be used in a variety of ways, from spreading on toast to cooking.
Why not try making margarine at home and impress your friends with your newfound knowledge? It's a fun and rewarding process that can add a personal touch to your meals. However, if you don't have the time or resources to do so, don't worry! We've got you covered with Planta - made in a larger kitchen with powerful tools and fortified with 9 vitamins. So, you can spend more quality time with your loved ones while still enjoying the iconic taste of Planta.
