Flora buttery spreads have been well-loved in many countries for years. You might have spotted them in Europe or Australia. But Flora has finally landed in the U.S., and with a brand new product no less. Flora Plant Butter is a buttery block, or brick as they call it, that’s made for cooking, spreading, and baking. It has launched in the U.S., and in several European countries, in Salted and Unsalted varieties.

Flora Plant Butter is Sprouting Up in Stores Across the Pond

Like most plant-based butter alternatives, Flora Plant Butter is free of dairy, gluten, GMOs, and artificial ingredients. But unlike most brands, it’s also coconut-free. They use a blend of palm oil, sunflower oil, and non-GMO palm oil. Flora is part of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), and for U.K. customers, they note use of certified segregated palm oil.

It’s margarine

If it spreads like margarine and tastes like margarine it’s margarine. This is margarine under another name.

Response from Go Dairy Free

Surprisingly, there is actually a regulatory difference between margarine and buttery spread or sticks (sometimes called plant butter for marketing purposes). This explains why this product legally isn’t margarine -> https://www.godairyfree.org/food-and-grocery/buttery-spread-margarine-differences

Great dairy free alternative to butter.

I am pleased with this product as it does not have any annoying margarine like taste to it and is a perfect dairy free alternative to butter and is also good for making cakes, biscuits & buttercream filling.

Unless you have some reason to buy this product for ideological reasons, you should not.
I got a free sample packed and tried to use it: It’s in every practical way the same as cheap margarine but sold at over triple the price. It does taste nothing like real butter.
It’s a decent margarine as far as such a product can exist, but no better in taste than house brands in any way. If you’re used to use real butter you’d be very disappointed with this synthetic alternative.
