FAQ: Your Rama Product Questions Answered


What does Taste the Love mean?

As Moms and Dads we show our love for our family through the food we make … and by making sure it’s tasty. No matter how simple the meal, even the simplest sandwich is an expression of our care, attention – and affection! It’s how we say “I love you” on a plate. And because of you and Rama, your family will taste the love in every bite.

Is Rama a Butter or a Margarine?

It’s neither! Rama Original and Rama Spread for Bread are both a fat spread because they have a high “good fat” content. This also makes them more versatile so you can add delicious taste to every dish – whether you’re cooking, baking or simply spreading on a sandwich.

Has Rama changed its fat content?

Yes. We reduced the fat, but kept all the taste! We relaunched Rama with a new recipe that reduced fat from 80% to 70% to improve the overall nutritional profile of our product. Omega 3 and 9 vitamins were also added for more nutritional benefits.

What is Omega 3?

It’s an essential fat which means it cannot be produced by the body but is needed for normal growth and development of children. We generally do not have enough Omega 3 in our diets. So we've included Omega 3 as part of our recipe for Rama Original Bricks, Tubs and Sachets. Nutrition plus taste – so everybody wins.

Rama is perfect for vegetarians but may not be suitable for vegans as it has whey powder, which is dairy.
