I need to put my son on a dairy free diet. One of his favorite foods is butter. I am looking for a substitute other than margarine which has hydrogenated oils. Does anyone know of anything? I haven't checked the health food store yet.

thanks,
Lori

I use Spectrum Natural with soy, flax seeds, and omega-3. It comes in a tub. I like the taste.

I also like Earth Balance. I used to use Willow Run but someone told me it had hydrogenated oils (didn't even know why that was bad until someone told me).

I hope you can find it in your area.

I also like Earth Balance, you can find them at Whole Foods, Wild Oats or other small natural food stores.

Olive oil is great for dipping your bread in. You can also add a dash of balsamic vinegar for a treat, too.

I was in Denver recently and had half a loaf of bread dipped in olive oil at Panera and it was fabulous!

Thanks all, I knew I came to the right place. I saw Earth Balance at both Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. I ended up getting Spectrum Naturals just because the Earth Balance had corn-based flavoring and my son can't have corn. Haven't tried giving it to him yet, I'll report back when I do.

Well, he liked the Spectrum Naturals. He said it was yummy. Now I am worried that it might not be gluten free because it contains "natural flavor" (non-dairy, non-GMO). I've put in a call to Spectrum to ask, as he right now has to be both gluten free and dairy free.
