coconut butter and coconut cream concentrate are the same thing. it is coconut oil with the raw flesh mixed in. it is a raw coconut butter, similar consistency to a nut butter. it's delicious mixed into smoothies, baked into paleo friendly desserts, or as a replacement for a nut butter over top of apples, strawberries, celery, or carrots. it's delish!
The coconut creme concentrate I buy has nothing in it but coconut. Not sure about coconut butter, but the Coconut Creme Concentrate is absolutely delicious and I have to make myself stop eating it.
Honestly, I think they are both the same product with different names because they are sold by different vendors.
The Coconut Creme is full of added sugar - it's used in mixed drinks, baked goods etc. Coconut butter has very little sugar in it, maybe 1 or 2 grams per serving
Coconut cream can be bought from many asian shops as well as supermarkets in the world food sections for as little a s £1.00 I used to buy it for 30p away back in 1990!
It is pure coconut made into a creamy paste nothing else is added at all whatsoever.! It is delicious. I don't know what all the fuss is all about this new product coconut butter. It is the same thing as Coconut cream its just the so called "health food" industry jumping in on a market, hyping it up giving it a new name and calling it the best next new thing which some raw foodies will believe and jump on. I had one such lady come to me and go on and on about it, I thought to myself yeah I know I've been using it and cooking with it and eating it for about 20 years and asians for thousands. But because it is marketed and presented in a health product way, it becomes the latest new fad. The only advantage you may be getting is that they may market it as organic or raw, but seriously do you believe all this stuff is any better than the creamed packs in the supermarkets. The benefits are not as great as they make out. Do yourself a favour save yourself some money and just buy the coconut cream. Better still make your own with a fresh coconut!
Thank you so much for your answer. I myself was wondering what this newfangled "coconut butter" was as well when I was trying to make a paleo bread. I tried to use dessicated coconut in the blender to get it to "cream" when I had a packet of coconut cream sitting right in my fridge. Very silly of me! I should have done my research before making the bread!
