Demand continues to grow for plant-based dairy alternatives, with a clear focus on health, sustainability and quality.
However, it can be difficult to find plant-based ingredients which mimic the structure, performance and mouthfeel of traditional, animal-based fats.
Meeting dietary requirements
Our butter alternatives provide a simple to way to make recipes vegan and allergen free. Registered with the Vegan Society, they can meet the challenge head-on in a wide range of cakes, pastry, biscuits, ready meals and sauce applications.
Importantly, our butter alternatives also match the melting profile of butter. They can be used either as a 1:1 substitute for butter, or as a partial replacement in butter enriched recipes as required.
Reduce saturated fat, improve quality
Butter alternatives can also help you to reduce saturated fat, and sustain the quality of your products throughout their shelf life.
