Miyoko’s Vegan Butter has taken on different looks over the years, but they’ve stayed true to the formula and thus far, to the buttery name. Despite extreme backlash (and even a lawsuit) from the dairy community, Miyoko won’t back down. She’s kept the word “butter” on the packaging, but made it clear that this is a vegan product, and “made from plants.”
Miyoko’s Vegan Butter is on the Cultured Side of Plant-Based Alternatives
Miyoko shuns palm oil in her butter formulation, but she uses a base of coconut oil and sunflower oil with just a touch of cashew cream.
Miyoko’s European-Style Cultured Vegan Butter Block
In 2018, Miyoko did toy with some flavored soft buttery spreads. But at this time, the vegan butter block is the only butter alternative from Miyoko’s Creamery that is available. It’s fermented with live and active cultures and churned to achieve a taste and consistency that’s similar to European-Style butter.
We have sampled Miyoko’s Vegan Butter on toast, and it was positively delicious. I seriously couldn’t get enough of the creamy mouthfeel and perfectly salted flavor. It didn’t really taste “cultured,” but it did have a touch of umami that I haven’t tasted in other butter alternatives.
This is a firm, slice-able butter alternative (much like butter sticks), and it’s supposed to be a versatile butter alternative for baking and cooking, too. If you’ve tried it, leave your own rating and review below to share with others!

What Others Are Saying ...
I finally had the chance to try Miyoko’s Vegan Butter, and it is amazing. Scott and I think it has a texture closer to butter than any other dairy-free spread we’ve tried. Our family tried it as a spread on rolls and to make garlic bread. The taste and consistency is very good both chilled and melted. We also like that there is no artificial color.
I look forward to trying it for baking, although at its current price this would be for special occasions only!
Long-time user loves it
It’s the closest thing to butter I’ve found. I fry and sautée with it, and use on toast. I also melt it to put in baked goods
Love Miyokos butter
I love it but save it for baking buttery products. It is more expensive than other alternatives
Everything about this butter is amazing.
Vegan what ??????
Despite being on top of the food chain, and that i would never ever mistake this for butter – I must pass on that my children and grandchildren (children vegetarian, grandchildren vegan) love this among all products out there. And they tell all. So, i have to buy it.
Best thing to hit vegan bread
Miyoko’s Vegan Butter is fantastic for cooking, baking, and just eating. It works in any instance that calls for dairy butter. Vegan margarine can’t hold a candle to this. I have been using it for years and thought the recipe had changed because it seems to melt more easily now, which can sometimes be an issue.
My only choice for vegan butter
I love the taste and texture and great for baking when I baked I don’t notice a difference and taste!!!!
