|Wiccanveg||Smart Balance light isn't vegan, it contains whey and or casienate. I checked the tub because thats what my mom uses.|

|kpickell||turns out I do have both the parkay squeeze bottle and the parkay sticks in the fridge so I checked to make sure, and the sticks do have whey in them. Just so you know. I bought em cuz I had a coupon, normally I get generic meijers brand which is vegan.|

Margarine is a sore subject with me ever since the #%*#@* co-op discontinued Willow Run.
Currently trying Earth Balance because I saw it for the first time the other night. Prior to that: Co-op brand (yuck, nasty), Fleishman's Light (even worse, like margarine made of water and chemicals), some other weird brand that I forget the name of (truly awful). Earth Balance is the closest to my beloved Willow Run that I have found. I wish the sticks were the longer thinner kind, rather than the shorter fatter kind, but that's such a minor issue when I think of how disgusting some of the other choices are.
I haven't tried to bake with Earth Balance yet, but I never had a bit of trouble baking with Willow Run, so I recommend it if you can find it.

|bluegrrrl79||I use "Mother's Margerine". My family doesn't like Earth Balance (it's too *hard* apparently), but so far no complaints about this stuff|

|kpickell||The Parkay squeeze bottle is vegan, and I use that as a topping. But I believe the tubs and the sticks both contain whey.|

|SunnyK||Fleishmann's Light (sp?) has been recommended to me as a vegan margarine. I've had 100% good luck baking with it. The only thing I don't like is that is comes in really tiny containers.|

|tearhsong2||Do you have the sticks or the tub? Sometimes tub margarine doesn't work for baking (has a higher water content in it and not enough oil). Generally, for baking margarine should be at least 60% oil. It might not work very well if it isn't.|

I'm pretty sure that parkay margarine is vegan. I also know that it is chock full of hydrogenated oils, but I want to use it for baking and the last time I checked, not too many people eat cookies for health reasons
Anyway, do you think it's okay to bake with? It says it's 'butter flavored'; might that affect the outcome of baked goods? Or should I stop posting questions asking what might happen and actually go and do it?
