Other Types of Butter
Flavoured butter is traditional butter with added flavourings such as garlic, spices and herbs. Using flavoured butter adds different seasoning to foods, along with a pure butter taste. You can also make your own flavoured butter.

Whey butter is made from the whey that has been separated from the curd in cheesemaking. Whey butter has a deeper yellow colour and stronger flavour than churned butter with a cheese-like flavour and is sometimes salty if the curd was salted. It is often found at specialty stores and farmers’ markets.

Ghee is a semi-fluid clarified butter that is sold in jars. It is most commonly used in Indian and other eastern cuisines. The milk solids are removed in the clarifying process so ghee stays semi-firm and keeps fresher at room temperature than whole butter. It is available at large supermarkets and specialty stores.
