White butterfat

White butterfat is made from pasteurized fresh cream or butter (100% cow’s milk) after water and non-fat dry matter (milk protein, lactose and minerals) have been removed. The fat content is 99,8%.

Product information on white butterfat  

The typical yellow color of butter is removed in a deodorization step which is a physical process that uses steam. If necessary, not only the color but also the typical butter taste can be neutralized using this technology. The melting point is 30–34 °C. Processing: substitute butter in recipes by butterfat according to this formula: Replace 1,000 g butter with 820 g butterfat + 180 g water or milk. Also our white butterfat is inherently free from lactose.

This colorless butterfat is in particular suited for baked goods and confectionery products in which the inherent color of the milk fat would have a detrimental effect on the color of the final product.

  • Baked goods
  • Desserts, white creams
  • Cream toffees, swirled candies
  • Chocolate, white chocolates fillings

If needed, the typical butter flavor can also be removed, for example for the production of flavored confectionery fillings or the recombination of certain cheeses.

White butterfat

Our specialist for specifically cases: white butterfat  

We use our deodorization facility at the Uelzen site to produce decolorized white butterfat. This particular manufacturing process allows us to remove the inherent color from butter fat with a purely physical process, and, if necessary, also the typical butter taste. Depending on your needs, a white or a white and tasteless butterfat for special products such as white biscuit fillings and creams or white sweets can be produced. The typical fat content of 99.8%, the special melting behaviour and the pleasant mouthfeel remains the same as of the normally used conventionel concentrated butterfat.

As a milk specialist, Uelzena Ingredients produces other very special milk fats apart from standard products for special applications in the processed food industry. These include, for example, butterfat with vanillin or carotene, mixed fats blended with vegetable fats or customer-specific milk fat compounds.

Not only the production unit in Uelzen, but also our subsidiary WS Warmsener Spezialitaten GmbH at the Warmsen site sets a special focus on the development of tailor-made milk products and the adaptation of their recipes of sweetened condensed milk to the very specific individual requirements of our customers. For example, they develop customized milk and milk products.
