Milkadamia Buttery Spread is Free of Palm Oil, Butta-Bing Butta-Bloom


Most brands of dairy-free buttery spread contain palm oil, soy, and/or added proteins. But Milkadamia Buttery Spread is a basic water and oil emulsion, made with a blend of non-GMO oils.

Christina Downey, the CMO of Milkadamia, states that using palm oil in this product would be counter-intuitive to their company’s origins.

The company grew out of a family farm, nestled near the rainforests of the eastern coast of Australia, where macadamias originate. As such when creating our buttery spread, it seemed the antithesis to develop one utilizing palm oil given the level of rainforest deforestation that crop has caused.

This truly taste like a high-quality butter made from cows. I’ve tasted a lot of butter substitutes and this one is by far the best! Lovely, mild flavor.

After trying this butter I’m not going back! It’s even better than Miyokos or Earth Balance

My favorite vegan butter by far, and I even prefer it grass-fed salted butter.

I’m pescatarian, so not full vegan, or even vegetarian, so we have butter in the house for my partner and as well as for cooking etc. I like making daily swaps that make for a more healthful, more-cruelty free lifestyle, and this is my favorite! It is palm oil free, which is a baseline requirement for anything that gets into my kitchen, and completely delicious. Both my boyfriend (not at all dairy free) and I love this butter on toast, and it is totally meltable and spreadable and salty-buttery delicious. I haven’t used it in recipe yet, because I love it so much that I’d rather use cheaper butter from Grocery Outlet on things where it is mixed in, and save this for my daily toast, but I would happily use it for all of my butter needs without batting an eye if it were consistently available for$3 a carton, as I have found it for a couple of times at grocery outlet.

Terrible Flavor.

I was really excited to see yet another butter alternative at my local Whole Foods, and I was utterly disappointed. The buttery spread was at the most reasonable price relative to other options, but the taste is very distinct and it made me gag a little. It’s gross!

I picked up a container at Whole Foods, I found that, not only does it melt like butter, it has delicious flavor too!

I love the ingredients and the richness they impart on this spread. It melts wonderfully, but is quite solid straight from the refrigerator. It’s best when softened a bit. My husband and I each thought it had a rather pronounced flavor for a butter alternative, I’m guessing from the macadamia nut oil since it didn’t taste like coconut to us.

This is one of the most delicious things I’ve ever eaten. I’m not exxagerating. It’s hard to not just eat it with a spoon. I’ve used Earth Balance for years and, while I find the flavor good, it’s always seemed oily in texture. Milkadamia spread is delicious and has a clean light mouth-feel. It is a really superior product.
