Things You Need To Know About Butter

What is butter?

Butter's raw material is mainly cream, obtained by concentrating the milk fat and then maturing and spreading it. It is rich in vitamins A, E and D. After entering the European cuisine, it has risen and became indispensable. Butter is produced in two different ways: salted butter and unsalted butter. Unsalted butter is the most natural form of butter. It has a light white color and a softer texture. Salted butter is a kind of butter which is made by adding salt to butter (duh!). It can last very long if the storage conditions are followed.

How to distinguish real butter?

You cannot distinguish true butter from its color. But we have a few tips for that. When you melt the butter, if it doesn't foam, and its color is a little bit darker, then it is not real butter. It is probably something like "I can't believe it's not butter".

Points to be considered

When using butter for pastries such as cookies, cakes, butter must be at room temperature. So your dough will be blended perfectly. If you have frozen butter, you can just grate it at room temperature. We recommend choosing unsalted butter for general use.
