Miyoko’s Vegan Butter Measures Up with Salted and Unsalted Varieties

0

Miyoko’s Vegan Butter has taken on different looks over the years, but they’ve stayed true to the European-style 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.”

And Miyoko continues to progress with new improvements. In the spring of 2020, she launched an Unsalted version of her European-Style Cultured Vegan Butter, and both varieties now have measurements on the wrap. They come in single one-cup blocks, and are marked for tablespoon and 1/3 cup increments.

Miyoko’s Vegan Butter Measures Up with Salted and Unsalted Varieties

It can be hard (read: near impossible) to find a dairy-free unsalted butter alternative. So I’m quite sure the unsalted version of Miyoko’s Vegan Butter will be very well received. And its rare that I make a “new packaging” announcement, but the measurements are a big improvement! Miyoko is truly thinking about versatility for cooking and baking with her latest buttery updates.

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) that’s intended for spreading, baking, and cooking. If you are looking for buttery spread, in tubs, then have a look at Miyoko’s Oatmilk Vegan Butter.

How Miyoko makes Her European-Style Cultured Vegan Butter Blocks

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. It’s fermented with live and active cultures and churned to achieve a taste and consistency that’s similar to European-Style butter.

This delicious vegan butter taste like butter except richer! We are so grateful Miyokos begin making this butter years ago as we gave up dairy products more than seven years ago and the other vegan butters we found hideous. This one tastes like butter!
