The dairy industry is in despair. Plant-based milks are giving it a run for its money, dairy factories are closing and reopening as nut-based milk companies, and major ice-cream companies like Ben & Jerry’s and Breyers are rolling out vegan flavors galore. But what about vegan butter and margarine?
While vegan butter hasn’t enjoyed the popularity of other nondairy delectables, it’s steadily carving out a niche in the plant-based world. The Trader Joe’s chain recently picked up Miyoko’s Kitchen VeganButter, and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter just released an “It’s Vegan” spread. Needless to say, there are more brands “spreading the love” than ever before. But don’t just take our word for it—check it out!
Butter Me Up
Califia Farms Plant Butter comes in two varieties, Sea Salt with Avocado Oil and Sea Salt with Olive Oil. Both are deliciously spreadable and free of gross sour cow’s milk.
As if you needed any more proof that the vegan revolution is here, Country Crock has launched its own dairy-free and vegan “plant butter.” It comes in two forms—sticks and spread—and it’s available in olive, almond, or avocado oil varieties.
With all the demand for vegan products, it’s no surprise that I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter has released a new “It’s Vegan” spread. The new buttery spread is made with a blend of plant-based oils, purified water, and salt and contains no partially hydrogenated oils.
