Vegan butter is a plant-based alternative to classic dairy butter. Throughout the years, plant-based butter consumption has grown in popularity due to its health benefits. It gives us the nutrients our body deserves. It’s also excellent for the environment and animal welfare. 

The typical ingredients of a butter consist of the following: 

  • Plant-derived oil (olive, avocado, coconut, etc.) 
  • Water

It also contains additional ingredients such as colorings, emulsifiers, salt, and natural flavors. These ingredients are used to resemble the taste and texture of a real butter closely.

Earth Balance

The original Earth Balance spread consists of 78% vegetable oil. It also comes with an excellent buttery taste with a creamy and rich texture. Furthermore, it’s mostly used by most vegans in their baking and cooking recipes.

Milkadamia Salted Buttery Spread

The maker of macadamia nut milk and creamer has recently produced a macadamia and coconut oil butter alternative. Also, the best thing about this new concoction is the salted and unsalted variety. We’re aware that unsalted vegan butter is hard to find. 

The Milkadamia Buttery Spread also has a mild buttery texture. Overall, despite having macadamia as the main ingredient, it does not contain any nutty flavor. So, don’t worry. It does not come in solid nuts as the spread only uses macadamia oil.
