Here we go again: Fontaine Sante traditional hummus. Sometimes, you just need to find a good basic dip that will go with everything. That’s where plain ol’ traditional hummus comes along. Now, I’ve already written off Sabra dips because they just don’t gel with my taste buds. So, when I saw the Fontaine Sante traditional hummus I decided I’d give it a try. A while back I tried one of their other dips and wanted to test out a different flavour to see how I’d like it.

Let’s just say the Fontaine Sante traditional hummus did not disappoint!

Product Review: What ingredients are in the Fontaine Sante traditional hummus?

Here are the ingredients that went in to making the Fontaine Sante traditional hummus : chickpeas, water, tahini (sesame butter), canola oil, lemon juice concentrate, sea salt, vinegar, garlic juice (garlic juice, salt).

My thoughts? You know, I’m not a big fan of canola oil but aside from that, I really like the list of ingredients used in the Fontaine Sante traditional hummus. I know exactly what everything is and there aren’t any funny sounding preservatives. If only they’d used a different oil base.

Oh well.

Product Review: How does Fontaine Sante traditional hummus taste?

I toast up some bread and slather on the Fontaine Sante traditional hummus.

Yep, it’s yummy.

Hummus is hummus so you expect to taste the chickpeas and the tahini but what I really like about the Fontaine Sante traditional hummus is that it’s got a great tart kick to it and jazzes up my every day morning toast. The Fontaine Sante traditional hummus paired really well with toast, fresh tomatoes, avocadoes, and cheese. I would happily eat it all day long if it weren’t for the whole canola oil business.


Okay, I’ve now tried two different Fontaine Sante products and both were made with canola oil. So, I have a decision to make. Either I buy the Fontaine Sante products knowing full well that they’re made with canola oil or I switch to a different brand.


This is tough for me. I do really like the Fontaine Sante traditional hummus but I’m just not a big fan of canola oil. So, I guess if I had a choice, I’d only buy this brand if other options aren’t available. I’d still prefer something like the Sunflower Kitchen Jerusalem Hummus dip which uses sunflower oil. You see, that’s the thing, when options are available companies have to think twice about the choices they make because I don’t HAVE to buy anything I don’t WANT to. Having said that, I’d prefer to pick up the Fontaine Sante traditional hummus over the Sabra dips ANY DAY.

Case closed.
