What does one use for butter? Is there a non-dairy or soy substitute?
Whatever happened to the corn substitutes? Please make recommendations.
I use Butter Buds or Molly McButter products from time to time but find
them to have limited use. They are a butter derivative that has had the
fat and moisture removed. They are expensive.
I use applesauce in many baked goods and fat free mayonaise as well. For
cooked veggies I use a butter "spray" such as I Can't Believe It's Not
Butter (not fat free). I also use fat free yogurt or sour cream in sauces
and some baking. Finally, chicken broth is a great butter substitute in
cooking and sauteing. You have to experiment but I have found I can
replace butter in most applications.
If you want to look at lower fat margarines and "spreads" I really like the
taste of Brown & Brummel but at 5g of fat per tablespoon it is hardly low
fat. It is made with oil and yogurt. I believe Promise makes a lower fat
"spread" but I haven't tried it.
