white margarine?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
I've been looking for a white margarine and I was hoping one of the bakers on here would know of something. I don't want to use lard or any fat solid I need a non dairy marg spread that is light in color almost white. I've tried making my own but you need special equipment that I don't have. Thanks

I am not for sure what you are looking for, but have you tried crisco? it is vegetable solid shortening and is white.

I'm not looking for crisco it's really different then margarine. I need something with a emulisifier in it. But I want there to be no added color.

So now I've discovered that there is something called Oleo Anyone heard of that? I still can't find white margarine anywhere. the only thing that these company's would have to do is leave out the beta carotene for color. I'm so frustrated with my search.

Oleo was something my grandmother and mom used way back when. It was basically a white margarine-type substance and came with a little yellow packet that you mix in with it to make it yellow. I don't think oleo is made anymore, but I could be wrong.

Oleo is a word in cooking- kind of like the word smurf. It can mean many things like butter, margarine, and even shorting or lard. Basically it's a fat.

I buy white margarine at a local cake store, but I've been told that Trader Joe's sells it.

Glad to help! I've been told that Trader Joes sells "uncolored" or "white" margarine (but I've never looked so I can't say for sure.)

I looked on the list of company's I called and I had already called Ventura They told me that they used to sell colorless margarine but not any longer. Maybe I talked to the wrong person. I'll keep trying. At least I know of someone who uses this product. I was beginning to wonder if it even existed. So how do you like the taste? I've been trying different brands to see what has the best flavor and Land o lakes and imperial seem to be the best for margarine. I hope that I can find something that has a good aftertaste and is white.

I'm from Canada as well, and used to buy Superstore's No Name brand white margarine, but they no longer carry the product since they cannot find a supplier/producer to supply/make the margarine for them (have called and searched). This was my way of making White Buttercream - no Crisco added, that stuff just leaves a nasty film in your mouth (my opinion). I am so distraught on how I'm going to still use my non-Crisco recipe to get a white icing. I saw on a search to add a touch of blue or violet food colour to the yellow-tinged icing and it's supposed to cancel the yellow colour out - anyone heard of this or tried it?? Oh, BTW Canadian white margarine bakers, if you find white margarine at your Superstore - buy it all...haha
