All About Veganism?

Do you have problems digesting dairy products? Perhaps you have a true allergy, a food intolerance to one or more dairy products, a problem with lactose or you are aiming to adopt a vegan way of life, and thus wish to rid your diet of dairy products. Whatever the reasoning behind your search for a dairy-free or vegan alternative to butter and many whey or lactose containing margarines, then Vitalite Dairy Free spread may be worth your consideration. Vitalite, you know the brand and the ads: the ones with the amusing cartoon crows singing its praises! (What do crows have to do with a margarine-type spread? Your guess is as good as mine).

The spread is widely available in the UK and stocked and sold by most major supermarket chains, so sourcing yourself a tub should be no problem providing you're UK-based. I have had no problems cooking and baking with the product and find the taste to be acceptable compared to other margarines. It is also easy on the pocket, and can frequently be found at a significantly lower price than comparable vegan or dairy free margarines such as the Pure range. It is asserted on the manufacturer's packaging to be suitable for vegans with no animal ingredients.

Are there any vaunted or claimed health benefits to the Vitalite Dairy Free spread, as described by the manufacturer, Dairycrest? Well, the box lid itself makes the claim that Vitalite Dairyfree has a huge, whopping 75% less saturated fat than you can expect to find in its animal product commercial rival, butter. Whether that's a good thing or not, I guess depends on the current research and official stance on saturated fats! Looking at the nutrition information on a tub of this spread, the most immediately impressive statistic is that for Vitamin E, which gives the Recommended Daily Allowance percentage as being 12% for just a seven gram serving. Sounds pretty good! Several of the B vitamin group also make a good showing at 4% for the same size allowance.

The spread itself is described via the packaging as being suitable for various culinary purposes including baking, frying, and spreading, and as a product that is suitable for freezing. Of course if you have an allergy or aversion to sunflower seeds then it may not be the best option for you. Otherwise, why not give it some consideration and perhaps give it a try?

      I'm one of a few admins on a site and we each have mplliute computers, locations, and browsers we use.From what I can tell, your solution seems like it'll take care of all of that by just inserting your code problem is, where how/ does one use it?Obviously, I'm completely clueless on coding, I'm just a blogger who is tired of seeing 2/3 of our hits come from the admins (not to mention how much that's skewing the other results- notably time on site and bounce rate).Thank you for your help.
