Proudly made from simple ingredients that most people recognize and probably have in their pantries - no nasties, just real food!
We have carefully picked our ingredients to create the perfect blends that are not only delicious, but are made from good ingredients and clean processes - and very
allergy friendly - no soy, nuts or grains!
We are very proud to say that we do not use any palm oil or hidden ingredients, and that what makes our Vutters a solid block is the high content of Coconut oil. This is the main difference between Vutter and other dairy free margarines - where the (liquid) vegetable oils have to undergo a full or partial hydrogenation process to solidify.
Vutter is a new concept. It's a truly delicious and healthy alternative to butter!
It's comparable in taste, texture, usability and in fat content - good fats too!
Vutter is better for you, better for our planet and better for our animal friends!
The base! Vutter is made from 58% Coconut oil certified by the Rain Forest Alliance. Certified coconuts are grown in accordance with the strict guidelines of the Rainforest Alliance Sustainable Agriculture Standard that takes a holistic approach, addressing environmental, social, and economic impacts. These include the farm’s productivity, conserving biodiversity and natural resources and improving the wellbeing of farmers, workers, and their families. Learn more here
Sunflower oil is the non-volatile oil from the seeds of sunflower. It’s high in vitamin E which is a powerful antioxidant that is known to protect the health of our cells tissues and organs. We use 100% pure cold pressed high oleic Sunflower oil with no antioxidants or chemicals added. Its clear and light in flavour and just adds to our Vutter a beautiful texture. The oil is not heated at any stage of our process.
Lecithin is essential to your body. Sunflower lecithin is rich in choline and other essential fatty acids and some people take it as a supplement. Sunflower Lecithin supplements are commonly used for many things, such as lower cholesterol, help improve digestion, acne, liver function etc. To put simply, it helps break down fats in the liver! The Sunflower Lecithin that we use in our Vutters is Non-GMO certified and it comes from India.
Apple cider vinegar is a vinegar made from fermented apple juice. The one we used in our Vutters is made from New Zealand grown Certified Organic apples. The ACV is raw, unpasteurized, unfiltered, naturally fermented and has a BioGro Certification.
Himalayan rock salt often contains trace amounts of iron oxide (rust), which gives it a pink color. It also has small amounts of calcium, iron, potassium and magnesium, making it slightly lower in sodium than regular table salt.
Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant and is well known for its amazing health benefits. When we were developing Vutter, our food technologist insisted that we used a different "colouring" component. Yes there are many natural food colours out there, but Turmeric was always our first choice. There is a reason it has been used for century as a natural medicine - for both the body & the soul 🧡"let thy food be thy medicine"🧡
Hemp oil is oil obtained by pressing hemp seeds. The oil contained in the hemp seed is 75-80% polyunsaturated fatty acids (the good fats) and only 9-11% of the lesser desired saturated fatty acids. The essential fatty acids (EFAs) contained in hemp seed oil are required in our diet more than any other vitamin, yet our bodies do not naturally produce them. Our Hemp seed oil is Certified Organic, Extra Virgin and Cold pressed and is used for making our 'Super Vutter'
Packed with vitamins B and C, manganese, selenium, iron, copper and potassium, garlic may be small, but its benefits are mighty! A part from all the good stuff we've all know about Garlic, it just tastes delicious and its a staple in some of the best cuisines around the world. Our garlic comes from Marlborough and its slow roasted at low temp for many hours in coconut oil. The aromatic infused oil is used to make our Vutter Garlic, which is dangerously addictive if you are a garlic fan like we are!
Heilala Vanilla beans
*Used only on the Vutter Spiced
Vanilla is the only fruit-bearing member of the orchid family. The large orchid plant bears a small flower that must be hand pollinated on the day of opening. After pollination, in approximately nine months a fully-grown green bean is ready to be picked. The green bean then undergoes a complex process of drying and curing where the flavour develops and the bean turns dark brown.
Heilala Vanilla is the Bourbon variety, often called Madagascar Bourbon vanilla. Its flavour is described as creamy, sweet, and rich. Heilala is pronounced 'hey la la'. The flower is the national flower of Tonga. Find out more
Cinnamon is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Cinnamon is used mainly as an aromatic condiment and flavouring additive in a wide variety of cuisines. A part from delicious, Cinnamon is thought to have many medicinal and soothing properties and is used frequently in Chinese herbal medicine. The distinctive smell and flavour of cinnamon comes from the essential oils contained in the bark, called cinnamaldehyde - which displays anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
