New Food Find: MELT Butter Alternative is Free of Dairy, Soy and Peas

It can be hard to find a dairy alternative that is free of dairy, soy and pea protein. MELT® Organic spreads is a #NewFoodFind that meets this need.




MELT does not separate under heat. This means you can use it as a one-to-one replacement for butter in cooking. MELT “sizzles, drizzles, bakes and melts” like butter. But compared to butter, it has half the saturated fat and fewer calories.


Three varieties are available:

  • Rich & Creamy MELT Organic. This is the original “butter” flavor, and it is also vegan.
  • Honey MELT Organic
  • Chocolate MELT Organic


All three varieties contain coconut oil, which the FDA labels as a tree nut. Other than that, they are free of the “top 8” allergens, as well as gluten. MELT is also free of hydrogenated oils, partially hydrogenated oils and artificial ingredients. Plus, MELT is certified USDA organic, Kosher Pareve and non-GMO. 


See the ingredients for each variety or find a store near you that carries MELT.


Potential Cross-Contamination Risk


MELT is made and packaged on a dedicated line free of:

peanuts, tree nuts (other than coconut), dairy, soy, egg, wheat, gluten, fish and shellfish.


This dedicated line is in a co-packing facility that is peanut- and tree nut-free. However, the facility may contain other allergens.

Coconut: Although classified by the FDA as a tree nut, coconut is not a common allergen and is not related to tree nuts. If you have a tree nut allergy, consult your physician to find out if you need to avoid coconut.

Hi MischaMarie! Annatto is a food color from a plant, as far as I know and understand. Have you explored the rest of our KFA resources to help you manage food allergies - we have a lot of great info! 

Thanks for the heads up, MischaMarie! Do you manage a soy or legume allergy?

The company reached out to me to try it and sent me some free samples (4 container & baking sticks) yesterday.  I'm excited to give it a try over the next few weeks.  I noticed many of my local stores starting to carry it.
