Bertolli will be highlighting Extra Light Tasting at Food Fête.

We all indulge our sweet tooth from time to time, but what if we could create recipes that will appeal to both those with traditional and adventuresome palates and cut up to 25 percent of the fat while keeping the taste? It’s been done with one ingredient change.

By using three-quarters of a teaspoon of olive oil for every one teaspoon of butter or margarine, chefs at home can reduce the fat in by up to 25 percent. According to the Food and Drug Administration, consuming about two tablespoons (23 grams) of olive oil a day may also reduce your risk of heart disease.

The greatest benefit comes by substituting olive oil for saturated fats rather than just adding more olive oil to a diet.

Bertolli Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil is ideal for baking because the olive aroma and flavor are filtered out. Because the vitamin E in Bertolli Olive Oil makes cakes, brownies, breads and muffins turn out evenly textured and moist. And because it is a healthy, cholesterol-free substitute for butter or vegetable oil. Plus, with no melting needed, a little time is saved in the process.
