Two New Vegan Butter Replacements Hit UK Shelves

What’s toast without some good vegan butter?

VegNews reports that British supermarket chain Tesco has launched two new non-dairy butter alternatives. One is a Coconut Spread derived from coconut oil, and the other is an Avocado Spread from avocado oil.

Tesco, the third largest retailer in the world, now has these plant-oil based spreads available across their 400 stores, to keep up with the vegan boom currently happening across the UK. The 9 ounce containers will run shoppers around $1.74, and are good sources of vitamins A and D, and omega 3s.

So while they’re appealing to a dairy-free crowd, they’re also happily targeting the avocado fiend in all of us. Tesco spreads buyer Dean Rawlinson told the Telegraph: “With this, the UK’s first ever avocado spread, our product developers have created a new and exciting way for shoppers to benefit  from the excellent health credentials of avocados in even more ways.” The oil based spread might not delivery the creamy green kick you’re expecting, but reviews say it’s a convincing butter replacement. And since coconut oil is good for everything, and with everything, we’re sure it’ll keep up with it’s avocado counterpart.

With most vegan butter and margarine replacements being a mixture of palm fruit oil, canola oil, and safflower oil, it’s intriguing to see companies branching out and testing new oils. Certainly any plant-based oil beats that of stolen and fermented cow’s milk.
