Original whirl

Original Whirl is a liquid butter alternative that provides the convenience and cooking advantages of a vegetable oil, without compromising on the buttery taste that people love.

It is a blend of rapeseed oils with a rich butter flavouring, and now plant-based! A multi-menu, versatile product, it can be used to shallow fry, bake, grill, create delicious sauces, glaze or as a recipe ingredient.

From breakfast, brunch and lunch, to starters and sides to accompany a main course, there is so much you can do with Original Whirl. Whip up American Pancakes, or buttery Scrambled Egg & Avocado Muffins for morning service. For lunch menus, use Whirl to add flavour to plant-based Walnut & Mushroom Tacos, as well as meaty Brioche Sliders and Seared Salmon Poke Bowls. It’s also perfect for main courses – such as Sage Butter Gnocchi, Baked Miso Cod Loin and Thai Sweet Chill Ramen Bowl. Desserts are quick and easy to make with Original Whirl – with no compromise on flavour. Try classics such as Sticky Ginger Puds, Apple & Peach Crumble and Bread & Butter Pudding.

Convenience is at the heart of Original Whirl. It saves time in the kitchen, as it doesn’t need to be clarified, melted, or reduced – it is ready to use. Whirl’s liquid butter alternative doesn’t spit or scorch, curdle or split, and it blends quickly and easily with other ingredients, meaning it is easy to use. It also saves valuable fridge space and reduces waste, as it has a 12-month ambient shelf life, making it perfect for restaurants, caterers and wholesalers.

Original Whirl is 82% lower in saturated fats, and higher in monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats than butter – making it a great alternative for health-conscious customers and diners. It is more cost effective than butter and comparable to the cost of margarine.
