Upfield came up with the brand after being asked by medical professionals to come up with a healthier alternative to margarine, lard and hard butters.
Upfield markets Flora as containing "a blend of healthy fats" including omega-3, omega-6 oils and vitamin B6, B12 and folic acid".
The Flora "pro.activ" Cholesterol reducing product contains plant sterols which block (up to 40%) the absorption of cholesterol into the blood stream. Upfield also claims Flora contains very little trans-fat and no hydrogenated oils, both of which have been proven to have major health implications.
