Also part of the Arboreto range, the Vegan Butter is 100% natural and sustainable, without any type of chemical additive or artificial coloring, and stands out for its pure production. Because it is gluten-free and free of trans fats, canola, soy and sodium, it is suitable for flexitarian and vegan diets and is a healthy alternative to dairy butter.
