Name the most loved and popular pastry and croissant as well as pain au chocolat will be two of the most mentioned, everywhere in the world. But there is an enormous quality difference amongst them. Croissants made with French butter, clearly being the favourite as croissants made with margarine lack the rich mouthfeel and taste.
With the Be Better 2 kg sheets, Be Better My Friend offers you the solution to develop vegan croissants without any compromise on workability and quality. And we are certain of this as pastry expert Carles Mampel has been helping us to develop a recipe which will very pleasantly surprise you.
Imagine how many kg of CO2 we will emit less, how much scarce water use we will save, how many hectares of land we will not need for cow grazing and growing animal feed, if we replace cow-butter with Be Better plant-butter?
Try for yourself and if you are seriously interested, we will be happy to share you the recipes of Carles Mampel’s vegan croissant and pain au chocolat recipes.
Be Better plant-based butter alternative has been designed and perfected for use in baking and pastry. Instead of adding flavourings to mimic the flavour of cow-butter, Be Better plant-butter has a clean, and neutral flavour. This makes it a perfect ingredient that won’t mask the fine flavours of e.g. fruits, chocolate and spices. This means you can make pure, honest pastry – 100% natural, 0% cow.
We want to make vegan pastry simple. By offering the right format to professionals. By making sure it results in easy to make, high quality plant-based pastry. By making sure our Be Better plant-butter is truly sustainable and better for the planet then cow-butter.
That’s exactly why we involved the independent sustainability bureau Eaternity to make us understand how sustainable Be Better plant-butter is and how we can improve it further.
By reviewing every aspect of the product ( ingredients, energy, packaging and transport), we can proudly claim that we received the highest nomination of 4 x 3 stars on climate, water, animal welfare and rainforest protection.
More concretely, changing cow-butter to Be Better plant-butter means:
