Product information on cholesterol reduced butterfat  

The cholesterol is removed in a purely physical process that uses steam. The milk fat content is 99.8% and the maximum water content 0.2%. The cholesterol content is 42 mg per 100 g. Compared to that common butter has a cholesterol content of 285 mg. The melting point is 30–34 °C. Processing: depending on the recipe, common butterfat is replaced by the same amount of cholesterol-reduced butterfat. Substitute butter in recipes by butterfat according to this formula: replace 1,000 g butter with 820 g butterfat + 180 g water or milk. Butterfat is inherently free from lactose.

Low cholesterol products with a full butter taste  

Cholesterol is an important issue for many consumers today. If you as a food producer want to manufacture concentrated low-cholesterol products, our low-cholesterol butterfat is a good alternative to the use of normal concentrated butter. Because you do not have to renounce the good taste and pleasant mouthfeel that milk fats as an ingredient (in contrast to vegetable fat) can give your finished goods, e.g. at the manufacturing of puff pastries. Another good alternative are mixed fats blended with some vegetable oil.

We produce this special butterfat on our deodorization plant at the Uelzen site. In a purely physical process, we mostly remove the cholesterol contained in milk fat and can thus significantly reduce the cholesterol content from normally 285 mg to only 42 mg per 100 g. We can also use this system to produce a decolorized white butter fat.

At the plant in Uelzen, we also have another unusual technology for milk fat processing, a fractionation faciity allows us to obtain separated milk fat fractions, which we either sell as separate fractions, but mainly use for the production of other products for our milk fat range, such as for recombined butter with defined properties in terms of melting point and melting behavior.
