Butter is arguably one of the most widely used food applications aroudn the world. It is used to spread or melt directly on a product, and also in baking, sauces, frying, and many other applications. Butter traps steam and carbon dioxide in batters for baking which causes goods to rise and have a light flaky texture.

Derived from milk, butter is produced by collecting cream from the top layer of undisturbed milk and churning it until the fat molecules start to clump together, thus producing a creamy butter.

Appearance: The versatility of butter is shown in how drastically it changes depending on the temperature of its environment. It is a firm solid when kept cool, but softens at room temperature making it easily spreadable, and then changes to a liquid at 32-35C. No matter the form, butter remains a yellowish white in color, with a buttery aroma and taste.

Composition: Typical composition of butter is 80-82% fat, 16-17.5% water, 1.5% salt, and 1% milk solids.

Melting point: Butter melts around 32-35C or 90-95F.
