Meet The Dairy-Free Butter Made of Coconuts


Meet The Dairy-Free Butter Made of Coconuts

It’s not easy to be vegan in the Philippines. As a culture that loves its meats and dairy, vegans would oftentimes have to scour supermarket shelves or go to expensive specialty groceries just to find food items that meet their diet demands. Unfortunately, even staple vegan pantry items like dairy-free butter are difficult to find. But look no further, SAGANÀ’s got your back. 

A proudly homegrown social enterprise, SAGANÀ makes their own dairy-free vegan butter alternative: a buttery coconut spread. They work with single source, local Filipino farmer cooperatives across Southern Luzon in harvesting coconut oil. Besides locally sourcing their ingredients, they also advocate for sustainability in their butter production process. This butter alternative uses 70% less water — in comparison to traditional dairy butter — which yields significantly less carbon dioxide emissions in their operations. 

Not only is this coconut spread ethically and sustainably made, it’s actually a healthy alternative. Unlike other plant-based butter alternatives, SAGANÀ’s Coconut Spread uses only pure coconut oil, which means zero trans fat. The spread consists of 81% pure, non-hydrogenated coconut oil, 15% water, and 1.5% salt. It’s a superfood high in medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) which helps with weight loss, digestion, metabolic health, and lowers heart disease risks. It also contains over 35% lauric acid which is known to boost the immune system with antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, and anticancer properties. 

SAGANÀ Coconut Spread can be used for all your cooking and baking needs. It’s the ultimate lactose-free and vegan substitute for any recipe that calls for butter with its 1:1 ratio. It’s also the perfect, healthy alternative to tableside butter—slather some on warm toast and it’s practically incomparable. With its smooth consistency, spreadability, and its natural creaminess and butteriness, there’s truly nothing butter than SAGANÀ’s Coconut Spread.
