Ease of use and flexibility are at the heart of Whirl. Simply pour, brush on or stir in to create delicious dishes.

Our products have been designed with multi-use in mind. Whirl butter alternatives can be used to shallow fry, bake, grill, create delicious sauces, glaze or as a recipe ingredient. Unlike solid butter, there’s no need to melt, saving caterers valuable time. Their 12 month ambient shelf life helps caterers to reduce waste and removes the need for refrigeration.

Health and dietary

Low fat, gluten-free, lactose-free, plant-based, vegan, vegetarian – the list of allergen, intolerances and dietary preferences of diners is ever-growing. Therefore, it’s vital for caterers to be aware, and invest in suitable alternative ingredients.

Our butter alternatives are 82% lower in saturated fats than butter – making them a great choice for catering outlets where health is a priority, or where you would like to reduce the number of calories in your dishes. Not only this, but they also contain 2.5 times more mono-unsaturated fat and 10 times more poly-unsaturated fats than butter. For diners looking for low-sodium dishes, we also offer Unsalted variations.

To bolster your plant-based menu offering, make simple swaps on your menus. Our Whirl Original and Unsalted products are registered with The Vegan Society and are suitable for vegetarians and those following a gluten-free diet too, making them ingredients that can be used across the menu.
