A common misconception is that healthier products don't taste as good. Earth Balance proves that it is in fact a misconception. Earth Balance products taste great.
Earth Balance uses only natural ingredients and they are organic-minded. They consider that there are people that follow a plant-based diet, have food allergies or want to live a more health-conscious and earth friendly lifestyle. 
Their products include buttery spreads, baking sticks & shortenings, soy milks, coconut spreads and alternative mayos. 


Earth Balance products are unique in a good way. For instance, their soy milk is different from other brands because it is made with certified organic soybeans that are Non-Gmo project verified and grown in the United States. Earth Balance Soymilk is vegan, free of lactose, cholesterol, dairy and gluten. Plus, it is a great source of calcium, vitamin D, and ALA Omega-3's. It also has between 5-7 grams of soy protein per serving depending on the flavor.

What we think: Earth Balance uses agave as a sweetener which makes the peanut butter less bland than all natural nut butters. The taste is more salty than sweet and has a very nice roasted flavor. Their Creamy Coconut and Peanut Butter Spread contains one part all-natural peanut butter and one part organic extra virgin coconut oil. It is a great spin on a classic staple! 
The coconut flavor is tasty, and it is not strong enough to overpower the natural peanut flavor. A great new way to experience coconut. Having the addition of coconut oil gives this spread a slightly thinner consistency than regular peanut butter which is nice because it makes it more versatile and easier to use. It could also make a great addition to smoothies or dessert!
It is expeller-pressed which means that the oils are removed in a natural way, only using pressure and not harsh chemicals. This is a fantastic way to improve your diet with a more natural, unique peanut butter. Two tablespoons of this spread are 190 calories. It contains no cholesterol, 6g of protein, 7g of carbs, 95mg of sodium, 170mg of potassium, and 17 of fat per serving. Plus, it's delicious!

"It’s the tub that started it all. Our Original Buttery Spread has made its name as the ultimate toast topper and a crucial part of your dairy-free baking arsenal. Its creamy, spreadable texture and rich, buttery taste come complete with our proprietary blend of natural oils."

What we think: Earth Balance's Natural Buttery Spread is a great alternative to butter that is vegan, lactose-free, gluten free, casein- free, non-GMO, made with expeller-pressed oils, and has 0g of trans fat. It is effective both on toast as well for cooking and baking. It can be spread, fried, baked, and sautéed. Great for anyone living a dairy or gluten-free diet, or if you're just trying to be health conscious.
Earth Balance's Natural Buttery Spread contains the following ingredients: Natural oil blend (palm fruit, canola, soy bean, flax and olive), filtered water, less than 2% of pure salt, natural flavor (plant derived from corn, no MSG, no alcohol, no gluten), pea protein, sunflower lecithin, lactic acid (non-dairy), and naturally extracted annato for color. One tablespoon of the spread contains 100 calories, 11g of fat, no cholesterol, 100mg of sodium, 0g carbs, and 0g of protein. 
Earth Balance's Natural Buttery Spread is very natural tasting. There is no strange after-taste, and the spread has a nice, rich flavor. In baking, there is no change in flavor compared to using non- Earth Balance, unhealthier options. We recommend Earth Balance's Natural Buttery Spread as a healthier alternative to regular butter or margarine.
