Anything without Coconut?
This is an excellent article. It is well thought out and presented in an excellent format. I also appreciate your concern about palm and habitat destruction.
I have food allergies and cannot have palm or coconut products, corn, and dairy (among other things). That means I no longer have any butter alternatives other than hydrogenated soybean shortening. Do you have any other suggestions for fats that will work to create a vegan butter? Other than the one using cocoa butter, that is. I am looking forward to making a batch to use for baking desserts, but there are some uses that really shouldn't have a chocolate flavor.
Thank you for any suggestions that you might be able to offer.
