Is someone able to tell what "Butter Buds" are?? I'm from New Zealand and I've bought an American cookbook that mentions these on several recipes. Any idea what I can use as a substitute?? Your thoughts would be appreciated!! Cheers and have a good day!

Hi Taniajane and welcome to the Cook's Pantry! Butter buds is a fake dried butter substitute with no cholesterol. Personally I think they taste nasty and I'm surprised there is actually a cookbook that uses them for an ingredient. Here's the link to Butter Buds that will explain them better for you -

I hope this helps!
