Butter for pastry - a sustainable replacement

Better Butter for pastry

Since the Middle Ages the fundamentals of pastry have not changed. Water, flour, a bit of salt and a lot of animal derived ingredients. However the world has changed and we have to change what we eat. We believe that pastry should not depend so heavily on animal-derived ingredients. To make you change, we developed Be Better plant-butter that gives you all the goodies from cow-butter, but none of its baddies. Be Better plant-butter gives you all the convenience and quality of cow-butter, but none of its guilt as we are 100% made of plants. Let’s start to create and enjoy more sustainable pastry.

Classic pastry recipe with a modern and optimised sustainable butter

Butter is a critical component of pastry and to make the good change simple we designed a plant-butter that offers a 1-on-1 replacement. Using carefully selected plants, Be Better plant-butter offers a similar melting behaviour as cow-butter with a neutral taste and a mouthfeel that is more fresh and light vs cow-butter.  


Join us in starting a plant-based pastry revolution. It is so much more fun and tasty.
