    Cultured Butter

    What's up with cultured butter? I tried to buy pastures butter (which I got) but I missed the fine print...it's cultured as well. What's the difference? Anything like other cultured dairy, like yogurt or cheese. I HATE yogurt and cheese, so I hope that's not it.

    The cream used to make cultured butter is allowed to clabber - or to naturally ferment a bit. Cultured butter has a wide range of tastes depending on the brand - ranging from indistinguishable from uncultured butter to very cheesy/tangy.

    The pastured butter I buy tastes almost exactly like regular, but better.

    I imagine since it's allowed to ferment a bit it would have higher vitamin K2 in it. Not sure what other benefits other than flavor it would have.

    The stuff I've got has Cream & lactic cultures for ingredients. It's quite flavorful even unsalted, when I tried it I realized this is what fake butter products are trying to pretend they taste like

    There is a French cultured butter that you can get here in the UK called President. A friend of mine who can't cope with dairy at all (digestive problems result) can eat President butter. I've started using it when I can get it and love the taste.

    I don't know if the milk is all from grass fed cattle like Kerrygold is though.
