Good spreadable consistency and mouthfeel

To deliver good spreadable consistency and mouthfeel you need a fat blend with the right melting profile. Spreadability is one of the most important characteristics of margarine. You don't want a tub of margarine that is too hard. Besides, high-quality margarine melts quickly in the mouth. This gives the margarine that unique cooling sensation. So, you need the right melting profile of the fat in your product.
