Butter Buds Launches Non-dairy Block Butter Replacement for Plant-Based, Bakery Formulations

The rising plant-based protein trend is creating momentum for non-dairy alternative ingredients too. 
To meet the growing demand of non-dairy fats of health-conscious consumers, Butter Buds, a manufacturer of concentrated dairy flavours and specialty ingredients, has launched a plant-based replacement for block butter.

Like sugar and salt, butter is an ingredient consumer want to eat less of, but it's not easy to replace it without affecting mouthfeel and texture. 

Butter Buds' new non-dairy line is called Butter Buds ND Butter Base 100 and is made with coconut oil. The most natural target are manufacturers of bakery products that want to deliver the same taste and texture as block butter, minus the dairy. Other advantages of Butter Buds ND Butter Base 100 are ease of handling, shelf-stable storage, pricing stability and a longer shelf life of finished products. 

However, the potential applications of this new dairy replacement go beyond that, says Butter Buds’ National Sales Director Michael Ivey: “Our Non-Dairy Specialty Products help food scientists formulate tasty foods that address many of today’s nutritional and dietary needs."

Butter Buds’ main goal, continues Ivey, “is to provide an effective dairy alternative solution to our customers —and deliver it within a shorter development timeline to help them expedite products to market.”

“To address the proliferation of plant-based oil spreads, Butter Buds has developed several oil-based options, including kosher pareve solutions, that can help formulators reach their flavour targets without the use of a dairy allergen. These products have been found to perform at similar quality levels as the dairy counterpart and at times even lower levels making it a win-win for manufacturers and consumers alike.”

According to Innova Market Insights, the number of new F&B launches that use Fats and Oils has increased globally by 2% from 2019 to 2020, with vegetable oil being the leading ingredient. Bakery (Sweet Biscuits/Cookies, Cakes, Pastries & Sweet Goods, Bread & Bread Products) is the category of products with most launches (24%), while the top characteristics are No Additives/Preservatives (16%), Gluten-Free (12%), and High/Source of Protein (8%).
