Frequently Asked Questions
How did you think of this idea?
It was discovered by a woman in an effort to have something to eat with a bottle of wine, without ruining the genuine taste of the wine itself. As wines are paired with foods, she wanted to invent a food that was paired to wine. In doing so, she formulated a recipe that effectively cleansed the palate, and she trademarked the name, la Pátard®.
What is the difference between la Pátard® and a cracker, biscuit or bread?
la Pátard® produces salivation while cleansing, which in turn resets your palate for the next sip. This new category does not include cracker, biscuit or bread product ingredients that result in “masking” and coating the palate and taste buds. la Pátard® is formulated as a tool to cleanse the palate,
this is its sole purpose. It is not a snack.
