Betterine

Consumers have a healthier new way to cook and bake thanks to the latest innovation from Betterine, “Butter’s vegan twin.”

Betterine is a plant-based alternative to butter and margarine that’s 100% free of dairy products, chemicals, and additives. Because it measures and behaves exactly like its less-healthy cousins, it can be used in any favorite recipe to achieve outstanding results with zero compromise on taste or texture.

Betterine is made from just four natural ingredients: pure coconut oil, water, organic soy lecithin, and arrowroot powder. It has a natural taste that can be used wherever butter or margarine are called for.

Betterine is 100% vegan and certified OU and New Square kosher (pareve) — perfect for transforming buttery desserts into healthier, dairy-free, vegan friendly masterpieces. It’s also non-GMO with no trans fats.
