The newest addition to my kitchen pantry is Earth Balance natural buttery spread. Earth Balance natural buttery spread is a vegan butter replacement that is just as good, if not better, than the real thing! Earth Balance is a sister company to the well-known Smart Balance butter products. Earth Balance products contain no trans fat, hydrogenated oils, artificial flavors, or GMOs. They are lactose-free, glucose-free, and dairy-free! You can use Earth Balance butter just like real butter; spread it on toast or use to to sauté, bake, or fry food.
So what is Earth Balance made of?
Ingredients: expeller pressed natural oil blend (soybean palm fruit, canola, and olive), filtered water, pure salt, natural flavor (derived from corn, no MSG, no alcohol, no gluten), soy protein, soy lecithin, lactic acid (non-dairy, derived from sugar beets), and beta-carotene color (from natural source)
The omega-3 fatty acids found in Earth Balance products help reduce the risk of heart disease. When consumed regularly, omega-3 fatty acids are found to help reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, lower blood sugar in those with diabetes, and fight inflammation which may be present in disorders such as Alzheimer’s. Earth Balance butter comes in many varieties including original, original whipped, soy garden, with olive oil, and soy-free. The butter replacement comes in both tub and stick form to meet all your cooking needs.
I recently used Earth Balance original natural buttery spread to make garlic bread and it turned out wonderfully; I was really pleased with the texture, flavor, and performance of the product! I cannot wait to try more of Earth Balance products. They even make vegan natural shortening and peanut butter which is sweetened with agave nectar!
