Butter is obtained from the cream that settles in fresh milk. The cream is separated from the milk and beaten until small lumps of fat form. The buttermilk is drained and can be drunk. Knead the fat lumps until a spreadable butter is obtained. The high water content of approx. 30 % is reduced, so that the finished product only contains a maximum of 16 % water and 82 % fat. The remaining percentages are covered by protein, vitamins, minerals, lactose and lecithin. There is also lightly salted butter for which sweet cream butter is used. Sweet cream butter is made from fresh cream and has a mild fresh creamy taste. It does not flocculate as easily as sour cream butter and is therefore better suited for binding sauces. Sour cream butter is made from soured cream and has a hearty fresh taste.
