Margarine - Gluten Free, Soy Free, Dairy Free, Peanut Free?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find a gluten free, soy free, peanut free, and dairy free margarine to use when baking. I have not been able to find anything. Does anyone know of any out there and where they can be found?

I have found Fleishman's light tub margarine to use as a spread but it does not work well for baking.

Thank you!

Hi Becky,

I've not been able to find a margarine that is without all of those things, if it dosen't have soy, it has corn, which I need to stay away from.

For baking, I use Spectrum Organic Shortening. It works as well as Crisco, but it's non-hydrogenated palm oil--much better for you.

Hi, thanks for the information. That looks exactly like what we need for our baking! Where do you find this? In a regular grocery store? In with the butter and margarines or over by the Crisco?

Avoiding all these foods sure is challenging, as I'm sure you know! We are feeling so much better though!

Thank you for your help!

I have bought it at Whole Foods, and at Wegman's (a large grocery store) in the Natural Marketplace section--baking isle.

Glad to hear you're doing better! :)

Oh the baking isle! :rolleyes: No wonder I have not been able to find anything as I always look in the margarine section! I looked at their website and there are a few stores in the area that are suppose to carry it. I can't wait to try cookies with this! Thank you so much for your help Jerseyangel!

Our grocery store (Safeway) carries Spectrum, but in the refridgerated section so I have just assumed it had to be in the 'fridge. Can it be stored in the cabinet? That would be so much more convenient for me! Or do they have different kinds and I need to just look for the one I can put in the cabinet. Thanks!

I keep it in the pantry--there's a note on the container, I believe, that says that it performs best at room temperature. And it does! :D

This is the Organic Shortening that comes in the white plastic tub.
