gluten-free Df Sf Margarine Wanted

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Does anyone know of a margarine type product that is soy-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, preservative-free, hydrogenated oils-free and sea salt-free? Maybe something made with canola oil.

I saw something called Pure sunflower sold in UK.

Thanks.

I sure do wish someone would post one but I don't think it is going to happen. I finally gave up looking after reading many, many, many labels and have started using first pressed xtra virgin olive oil. Haven't tried it yet with cinnamon sugar but great with plain pizza crusts or cebe bread.

My reactions to dairy and soy are too severe (feel like really bad menstrual cramps plus bloating) to risk any soy based margarines or even ghee, which is supposed to be casein free, but still comes from a dairy source. So I use coconut oil, which stays congealed like margarine at temperatures under 75 degrees fahrenheit. I use it for baking, cooking and spreading on breads, squash and other vegies. I also like tahini (sesame butter) on vegies, but especially on spaghetti squash.

Well, its not margarine, but ghee is clarified butter, and does not have any casein in it (Safe or those with milk allergies, etc)

I also found mine at whole foods.

Thanks so much for posting this, I was wondering about ghee. I will have to see if I can find it locally or dive into my cookbooks to see if I can make it myself.

I was going to post this same topic the other day! I have also yet to find a margarine which is free of soy, gluten and dairy. I gave up also. I just have been craving cookies lately but I found one that uses coconut oil shortening...we'll see how I like it. I will also look into coconut oil-spread type things. Thanks for the suggestions!'

I use coconut oil instead of butter in nearly everything I bake. It works well.

Coconut oil with a hint of added salt works as a butter substitute on gluten-free toast and what not. Olive oil is a good alternative also.

Fleischmann's Light in the sleeve (not the stick) is made from corn and canola oil. It is claimed to be free of milk and soy. We've been using it for many years and even bake with it. Recently the grocery stores in our area decided to stop carrying it. So, we called Fleischmann's and they told us it could be ordered through any store that already carries other items from their brand. We've got a case on order now. It's the only one on the market we've been able to find thats milk/soy free!

I use Fleischmann's also and have not had any problems with it, I am only gluten and Dairt free though, but I am able to have dairy in a few months. I find this brand to be pretty good though. Sorry I was not too much help.

Somebody said the Fleischman's Light was df, sf and gluten-free in another thread, and it isn't unless I read the wrong ingredients. I looked it up on their website and it has soy in it. Correct me if I'm wrong!

I just looked at our tub of Fleischman's Light and you are right, it now says contains soy at the bottom of the ingredients. We have been relying on that for "butter" for a year, now. Another example of needing to read labels every time!

Coconut oil is wonderful on toast. I don't add any salt to it. Daughter loves it with cinnamon and sugar on top.

If you live in an area with a lot of Jewish people, you might be able to get a brand called Mother's. I have only heard about it and not tried it. But I have also heard that it tastes terrible. They put out a regular margarine, but this is not it. It is one made only for a certain Jewish holiday. Forgive me for not knowing the details better. I am not Jewish and can't remember. Might be passover. I've seen it listed on amazon .com but now there is a caution that the formula has changed and it contains soy. I wouldn't buy it unless I could see a package in my hand and verify the ingredients.
