What is the best butter sold in those single serve packages?  Is it Anchor?  I know I read about butter being made from butter oil instead of cream.  Just curious about different opinions.

Have always considered Orchid pure butter the best local brand but they now also sell a cheaper blend type so have to read.  Not sure if they market single servings (they do - Tops)

Tops online Orchid Butter 10 grams, pack of 8 pieces.

Anchor butter is really good and doesn't have the mild taste of impurities as some butter does.

I wonder why Lurpak costs twice as much as Anchor?

Because they feed the cows on Carlsberg in Denmark.   LOL

 

It is quite a biy more expensive in UK than other butters, but it is very nice tasting.

I find Allowrie (n Zealand? ) to be OK for baking and butties.

Not New Zealand, and not butter.  It's manufactured in Thailand from imported butter oil and miscellaneous unnatural chemicals by the Kim Chua Group.  The kangaroo on the pack is simply there to fool the gullible.  (They also make "Imperial" products.)

 

Orchid (mentioned above) is similarly not butter.

So which products available here are 'real' butter please.

Orchid and Allowrie say 82% butter content, so does it really matter?

Whilst I do like the taste of real butter, and lord knows its been along time, I tend to stick to the margarine low stuff these days, and its consistently available, which is also a bonus. Flora as an example.

Real butter:  Emborg, Anchor, President, Elle & Vire, Ballantyne, Lurpak, Country Life, Anchor.  There are probably others, but these spring to mind.  Note that some of these brands include non-butter products in their range.

 

"82% butter content" almost certainly means "82% butter fat" (or possibly "82% butter oil").  Real butter is made from churning cream.  That's not what the Thai manufacturers are doing.  The butter content in their products is 0%.

I use Australian olive oil spread from Australia.

Light version speads good tastes as good as any butter.  Also good for Chlorestoral. Available in Rimping always.

Used it in Australia and was pleased to see it here.

Australia butter available in bricks  but hard to spread.
