Best Butter?

Anchor for me.

 

Most of the Thai manufactured 'butters' include a significant amount (30 to 50%) of palm oil - it tastes awful.

well it's not really Butter then!  more just a falsely labelled  Margarine blend

Anchor is best. It is 100% grass fed butter. Not grain fed junk and 95% of the other butter you see are cut with palm oil.

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.

Same.
I am amazed by the quality of some margarines whose taste and aroma are very close to real butter.
So I buy Aro salt at Makro in a package of 2 kilos, 360 b.
I tested the Best Food and Allowries butter in trays. Bad taste for me.

Im a cholesterol magnet. However, I do use judicious quantities of Anchor or Lurpak on occasion as a flavouring. President is too expensive

+1, though Lurpak is best and would be my choice if I was a rich man.

Butter is really expensive out here in the sticks and the Allowrie stuff tastes awful. I've settled on the Orchid brand for cooking and baking, I know it's probably not real butter but it's close enough and I can get enough to last me a few weeks for 60 baht.

I go to Bangkok about every 3 months and I bring back a stash of Anchor.

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

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

Makro sells New Zealand Anchor butter, salted and unsalted for around B115 per 245g block. There is also a German brand that is also very good also salted and un. The Thai butter blends are inferior. I am surprised Chokchai Farms don't make butter and cheese as they have a large dairy herd. Butter here is ridiculously expensive especially Lurpak. With the high value baht and the foreign currencies weaker, you'd think that the prices would be lower. TIT!

Is there nowhere near your residence where you can buy Anchor? Sold in large Tesco Lotus, Makro, Tops and maybe Big C.

I'm loathe to store lots of stuff in the freezer seeing as we regularly get blackouts here whenever the weather gets a bit suspect.
