Where is Your Butter From?

Though we usually only have a couple different varieties of butter in North America, were you aware there are many different methods used to cook different types of butter? Read on to find out the region where this delicious ingredient hails from.

  • Cultured Cream Butter: There is always at the lowest end 82% fat in cultured cream butter, which is also called European Style butter. European style butter is perfect to bake with and spreads easily. It is made by allowing the microorganisms in milk to ferment which creates a tangy flavor that is stirred into the butter. Cultured cream butter is sunny yellow colored and rich in flavor.
  • Sweet Cream Butter: Sweet cream butter though, is made with fresh cream instead of the soured cream that cultured butter has. The majority of the butters in North America are qualified as sweet cream butter, because dairy legislation necessitate that butter is made with pasteurized milk butter.
