Substitutes For Margarine And Butter
0

14 posts in this topic

Today I noticed when I ate it, it made my stomach queasy -- it never did before I was gluten free, maybe I just didn't notice because usually I'd eat butter with wheat bread? (It's a different feeling than being glutened) Anyhow, now I need a substitute because I like to bake - and I like butter on toast. I've read a few things I can use to substitute when baking, but what about for eating? What do you use other than butter or margarine, that tastes like butter and margarine?

Just like with gluten subs, you will not find one that tastes exactly the same.

We like olive oil and the kids LOVE baked garlic as a spread on things.

For baking I will use canned pumpkin or applesauce in place of butter. (prefer the first)

I use Earth Balance for baking and eating....I'm allergic to gluten,soy,dairy and this is the best substitute for me. I also like coconut oil on my veggies and have adapted quite well to the flavor.

Canned pumpkin? Never tried that. I will. I replace with applesauce and yogourt, but I never knew you could use pumpkin.

Also, thanks for the olive oil suggestion. I've never tried that.

You can use canned black beans to make cho chip cookies!

Whirled spinach or white beans...you name, it can and will replace FATS!

I only use EVOO. If you want it "hard" you put it in the freezer

and then whip the heck out of it and wa-la, you have EVOO Spread!

Easy peasy! Really good for making tamales, if so inclined!

You can simmer anything in EVOO to flavor it, 30 minutes is all

it takes. Try garlic or any herb. If you have friends growing pot

try putting the leaves of the plant in oil, I think you'd be

amazed at it's healing properties! I rub it on my knees and wrists.

So very many things to do with EVOO! 2 gallons at Costco for $20!

You might try ghee.

It depends on your problem with milk - but there's ghee out there that's certified casein and lactose free.

You can make your own, too.

It's funny because I can have skimmed and partyl skim milk just fine...only margarine and butter upset me--which is odd!

Thanks for the suggestions! I am trying the olive oil, and I am going to look for the Earth Balance. I've seen it...picked it up and said "nah", but I think I was wrong there!

Now I need to see what ghee is.

I like Earth Balance soy free spread, or Nutivia coconut oil. I use them on veggies,etc.

I was surprised that I liked the coconut oil so well. It has a lot of health benefits too.

You may be having an issue with the fat part of the equation if skim products work for you.

If you have a problem with the oils - olive, coconut, etc. that's what I'd consider.

That may be a temporary healing phase or something else. Only time will tell.

I hope it's just a phase...I've never noticed it before. Oh well, for now I'll just try different spreads. I think it's a fat-thing too, because the olive oil isn't doing any good for me either, which is strange -- last week I could eat it no problem :P OH how strange is the body!

I'm using this in my house:

http://www.oliviopro...ablebutter.aspx - the coconut spread (bread with coconut spread and jelly- I don't like it with meat because I feel like I'm eating cake, but with jelly-wow)

http://www.fleischma...our-spreads.jsp - I don't know, if you can eat this, but unsalted butter tastes like the real thing (the closest from all spreads) to me. I'm using the unsalted margarine for cake fillings.

http://www.earthbala...l.com/products/ - check the fridge. This don't tastes like butter, but is very good with ham, salami sandwiches. I'm using this also for baking, or in mashed potatoes.

http://www.smartbala...ttery-spreads-0 -They are to salty for me, but when the earth balance is out of stock, I will buy it.

    • Newly diagnosed, who do I tell? I'm not talking friends & family. I am normally private about health matters but I feel it seems I need to tell so many people. Does anyone have a list? Some are obvious like doctor and dentist but one came up for me the other day when my massage therapist asked if I'd had any changes in my health and I said no but halfway through the session realized that, "Duh I should have mentioned Celiac! Clearly the lotion used could be an issue." So who is on your list to tell? Here's who I have so far: Doctor(s) Dentist Restaurant Servers Massage Therapists Hair Stylist Babysitters, Petsitters or Housesitters (anyone who might bring or prepare food in my home)      
    • I feel the same way! Newly diagnosed (gluten-free since July 1) and never had major GI symptoms mostly neurological issues and other very random stuff. So no red flags to tell me, "You just glutened yourself!" Or at least I haven't identified them yet. I'm not sure if I'm feeling better or not yet. I do have more energy but lots of anxiety and random symptoms that might be celiac related... but who knows. I'm just not sure if this is what "feeling better" is yet. I can't imagine what that is like... or will be like. And I keep reading about people "getting sick" when they are glutened but that is so vague. For me, I'm not sure I'll know if I've actually been glutened or not. I feel like I'm extremely careful but I'm not sure if I'm being over the top, or if I'm doing it right, or not enough and need to do more. I'd just like to get to a nice gluten-free baseline and note what that is like so that I can compare how I used to feel and how I might feel if glutened so that I'll know! Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your thread and provide no answers. I can just relate, that's all.
    • Last check(last fall sometime) my b12 and folate were fine. He did check my iron and it was fine. My potassium is technically normal, but lower than my cardio wants(I'm on q med that depletes it). Last time I had a full and extensive panel run was years and years ago. I recall my copper being high(but no one ever retested it), vit d and a couple others were low. I have tested positive for labs used to evaluate malnutrition, but it's been q couple of years since they've done those. Just going to put it on the back burner for now I guess. Can't afford to lose much more weight, but they tend to get more serious the lower my BMI goes(not on purpose, I'll have periods where I can gain a bit because I'm not vomiting a lot. Past two days I've been throwing up again after I eat.) Maybe my next colonoscopy will finally show something useful.  It's just 3 years this time and I've been arguing about my gut for 18 years now so what's a little More? 
    • Re. gorilla munch - Made with corn, says gluten free on the box, I don't know why it wouldn't be. It's quite yummy. Corn pops and Post golden crisp used to be my favorites, before celiac.
    • I buy the Chex cereals( except wheat). I had recently been buying Puffins from Barbara's bakery but got a very unsatisfactory answer to my question about where they source their oats so I have decided to stop buying them. See below.... "Thank you for your recent email about the oat flour in our Puffins cereal.  We appreciate the time you took to contact our company.

      Approximately 90% of our ingredients are sourced from North America. However obviously there are some crops that do not grow here, and items that are not manufactured here. In those cases, we source from other areas, mainly UK, EU and South America. Regardless of where the supplier is located, we have a very robust Supplier Assurance Program that ensures that we purchase only from approved, high quality suppliers. 

      We thank you again for your comments and hope you continue to enjoy our products.  If, at any time, we can be of further assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us again."
