Healthy Butter Alternatives
When Cygnia Rapp was being placed on a restrictive diet (no wheat, red meat, hard cheese, butter, peanut butter, and more) that severely limited her intake of fats and oils, it quickly took the joy out of eating.

As a person who loved food and cooking, Cygnia decided to fight back. Working out of her kitchen, she set out to create organic alternatives that would not only meet her health requirements but also satisfy her taste buds. She tirelessly researched fats and oils, uncovering a wealth of little-known information about healthier fats and oils and their influence on health and well-being.

After months of experimentation, Cygnia developed the recipe for MELT Organic based on two critical organic oils, virgin coconut oil and flaxseed oil, that supported her digestive wellness and overall health.
