We all know that well-known brands are more expensive than lesser- known alternatives but I assumed they were at least equal to the lesser-known brands for quality.

Lidl were out of stock of Casaburo olive spread so I bought Bertolli, the brand leader which costs a lot more.

I have just compared the two brands to find the Casaburo contains 21% olive oil and weighs 500g and the Bertolli has 10% olive oil and weighs 450g.

Casaburo lists water as its main ingredient, Bertolli the oils. 

Has it changed the recipe?  According to this, it has 12% olive oil.

They both list vegetable oils before water. Bertolli lists 10% olive oil and Casaburo says 21% on the packs.

But which do you prefer, for taste and texture?  That's what counts

They taste the same to me

On BARRY's link, there's an image of the list of ingredients showing 12% olive oil.


Lidl s has more water than any type of oil, Bertolli has less water than oil.
