Right now I have Smart balance, but it does have some soy. All the others I looked at had soy as the first or second ingredient. Is there a better one?

Earth balance still has some soy in it, albeit not much (depending on which one you choose).<br><br><br><br>
Try Canoleo Margarine. Web site doesn't say but I think it may be soy-free.<br><br><br><br>
Or, refrig olive oil and use that like a marg spread.

Extra virgin olive oil is really nice for this especially.

Oh yes, you're right. Since I never buy anything BUT <b>Extra</b> virgin olive oil, I quite often forget to make the distinction to others. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sunny.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sunny:">

Thanks!<br><br><br><br>
I've been baking yummy bread and need something buttery to spread on it. I have been making nut butters and they are yummy, but not buttery enough, kwim?<br><br><br><br>
I thought there was one made of canola, but I couldn't think of the name. I will try the olive oil thing, since that sounds close to perfect. I also just got some coconut oil, so perhaps that would be yummy?

Perhaps... it depends on how much you prize the flavor of coconut. It's rather strong and for a bread topping use... well, it just depends. Olive oil tends to be a better marriage.<br><br><br><br>
I love coconut... in certain forms. All I can say is that you can try it once and see. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

We eat Suma Organic Sunflower spread. It tastes really buttery and there is no soy plus it is vegan society approved. It is also ratest the highest on Ethiscore. <a href="http://www.ethiscore.org/report.aspx?ID=216568&free=true" target="_blank">http://www.ethiscore.org/report.aspx...6568&free=true</a>

Happen to know if this is distributed in the states or is this just in the UK?

My mum (who is allergic to dairy and soy) uses Fleishmann's (sp?) margarine. It's not vegan (contains D3), but I believe is free of both dairy and soy.

Nucoa is soy and dairy free. It's a rather "generic" type margerine and available at most larger grocery stores. GREAT on popcorn and bread!

I love the nucoa, plus its so cheap compared to some of those other vegan butters. I think I may try the olive oil thing though I had no idea.

I think it's only the light variety.<br><br><br><br>
All of them have hydrogenated oils though, if you're concerned about the health aspects of that.

I try to let people know whenever possible that Nucoa's dairy-free, because so many people say they can't find, or "can't afford" dairy-free margerines. It's CHEAP, it's available most everywhere in the US but few people realize it's dairy-free.<br><br><br><br>
Yeah, I prefer Earth Balance or similar, but it's nice to know there's an option.<br><br>
Oh, AND it works better in baking than EB.
