When catering in the care sector, affording dignity to those you are cooking for is vital. Part of this is providing food that is high-quality, and similar to the kinds of dishes service users would cook for themselves – a taste of home is so important.
It’s vital to ensure that the food you’re serving is delicious – to stimulate appetites.
In healthcare, food is of utmost importance to patient outcomes - providing nutritious food that is enjoyed by all patients, supports wellbeing and aids recovery is key.
In education it’s important to provide healthy food students will enjoy, to support their learning and help them concentrate throughout their lessons and lectures.
And in prisons, it’s about providing nutritious foods that not only taste great but are also cost effective and convenient for caterers.
Wherever your kitchen is based and whoever you are catering for in the cost sector, Whirl liquid butter alternatives can help you to meet a multitude of challenges. Whirl can provide the delicious rich flavour of butter, but with none of the dairy for example.
Whirl also contains up to 82% less saturated fat than butter – which can support creating healthier choices for those you cater for. Our Unsalted version is also great for supporting a low-sodium diet.
Not only this, but Whirl is also contains plant-based ingredients and our Original and Unsalted varieties are Vegan Society accredited – which means using Whirl in your kitchen can help meet your diners’ dietary requirements, especially for those who are lactose intolerant.

Not only is Whirl up to 75% cheaper than butter, but you can use it anywhere you would normally use butter – meaning you only need to provide one product in your kitchen.
