Advantages: 30% less fat than regular Clover
Disadvantages: Not as tasty as the usual Clover
I have recently reviewed Clover spread but just discovered that a new version of Clover has been brought out named 'Clover Light'. I saw it on introductory offer in sainsbury's for just 76p. As a lover of Clover, and currently on a diet, I thought that I would 'give it a whirl'.
I put Clover Light to the test.....my family. I did not tell them that the Clover was any different.... The tub looks virtually the same as standard Clover. The only real difference was that it said 'lighter' on the pack in a pale blue colour...not exactly 'in your face'. The verdict was unanimous.
Even though I had not mentioned to them that the Clover was not the usual one - they all (unsolicited) emphatically told me thay they did not like it..... they said it tasted more 'margariney' than the usual Clover which does taste 'buttery'. The difference was especially noticeable on toast where taste of the spread is 'all important'!!
Personally, on sandwiches, I could not taste the difference...
Clover light, like Clover, is churned. It contains 30%less fat than regular clover and less than half the saturated fat of butter. The colour and flavour are natural and ther are no hydrogenated fats and it is virtually trans fat free.
Vegetable Oils, Water, Reconstituted Buttermilk, Salted Butter (10%), Modified Maize Starch, Salt (1.5%), Emulsifiers (E471, Soya Lecithin), Lactic Acid, Preservative (Potassium Sorbate), Colour (Natural Beta Carotene), Natural Flavouring.

Clover Light is suitable for spreading, cooking, baking and frying.
Nevertheless it is not quite as delicious as the regular clover - but then, what very low fat spreads are??
Summary: Not quite as buttery as the usual Clover
