Non Dairy/non Soy Butter

Recommended Posts

Since so many here avoid the common allergens, how do you find butter that is non dairy AND non soy? I need help!

All I've found is soy butter, even at Trader Joe's and all of those health food stores.

Please help...

Yep, I think if you're eliminating dairy and soy, you're out of luck on the butter front. You can usually sub oils (taking the water content difference into account) in most recipes, however.

Egg Beaters are egg whites (and some additional ingredients). So unless you're only avoiding egg yolks, they're not ok. The ingredient labels on the packages are usually clear about this issue.

Ener-G makes a powdered egg replacer that contains no egg, but it may have soy, I'm not sure...

Ener-g Egg Replacer contains the following ingredients:

Potato Starch, Tapioca Flour, Leavening (Calcium Lactate*, Calcium Carbonate, Citric Acid), Cellulose Gum, Carbohydrate Gum.

*There is a note on it that says Calcium lactate is NOT derived from dairy. It does not contain lactose.

It appears that it doesn't contain soy. The product is really only useful for replacing eggs in baked goods. It wouldn't work for making omelets and such.

I checked on Spectrum, and it contains soy...darn.

The only other alternatives, assuming you're not spreading it on toast and expecting it to taste like butter is Coconut oil, which is semi-solid, or ghee, which has had the water and milk solids removed, and considered safe for those who are allergic to dairy.

I'm in the same boat, so I just forget about it and use oils or the above in cooking.
