Butterfat with vanillin and carotene

Butterfat with flavoring vanillin or coloring carotene  

The use of butterfat with the addition of vanillin for a particularly fine aroma or carotene for a beautiful pastry color has a long tradition for the production of fine baked goods. The tried-and-tested recipes were retained a few years ago, even after the EU subsidies for butter and butterfat with tracer were cancelled. One reason for this is surely the easier dosing and handling, if the vanillin or the carotene is already added to the butterfat and does not have to be added individually.

Butterfat with vanillin is a good alternative to concentrated butter not only for baked goods, but also for the production of ice cream, confectionery and chocolate products and for praline fillings in the confectionery trade, as it supports and rounds off the taste of the finished products.

Production takes place in the butter melting facility at the Uelzen site, where we also produce other milk fats such as white butterfat or a butter (laminating butter plate) with carotene for savory Danish pastries and puff pastries. As a specialist in milk-based ingredients, Uelzena Ingredients also supplies the international chocolate, confectionery and food industries with milk powder and milk products such as deli cream as well as sweetened condensed milk.

Note: We offer this product not only as concentrated butter with 99.8% milk fat, but also as butter with vanillin or carotene with a fat content of 82%, as a stick, block or butter plate.
