Top 15 Best Butter Brands Available in Malaysia

How do you know if you’re buying pure butter and not margarine? Pure butter is made of cream churned to separate the fat from the buttermilk. Pure butter is also made of butterfat, and the fat content is about 80%. A blended butter is butter that has been mixed with margarine. It contains lower saturated fat content. The higher the fat content in butter results in a richer taste, softer texture, and a faster melt ability.

Butter is essential in baking, especially when it comes to pie crusts, cakes, cookies, cupcakes, pound cake, and every other thing we have ever baked! Butter is commonly used in our recipes, and we often take this simple ingredient for granted. Truth be told, butter is just as fussy as the next baking ingredient. Let’s take a closer look at the top 15 butter brands in Malaysia so you can decide which one is right for your needs.

What Else Is Butter Used For?

Butter develops an exquisite nutty flavor when heated as the milk solids caramelize. It gives your food a flavorful and creamy taste when it is added to your cooking. Moreover, it acts as the finishing touch of your sauces as its complex texture makes the food tastes better. This includes when butter is mixed into your baked goods as it softens the surface of your cakes and cookies.

There are many ways to prepare the butter, such as by scooping it with a tablespoon, especially when you are using it to grill your meat, and slicing from the butter stick itself to spread it on a slice of bread. As for baking, some might take a whole chunk of butter to beat together in a mixture of baking ingredients.

How To Store Butter?

Once you have unwrapped the butter, you should consume it within 2 weeks while you store it in a fridge at 40℉ (4℃) or below the upper or middle shelf. You can also freeze the butter because the maximum period to keep it frozen is around 6-9 months, and for margarine, 6-8 months.
