What Is Butter Extract?

Butter extract is a concentrated form of the flavor of butter. It is made by extracting the flavor compounds from butter using alcohol. Butter extract is typically clear or yellow in color and has a strong buttery aroma. It is used to add a rich, buttery flavor to baked goods, beverages, and other foods.

Butter extract is typically made with real butter, but there are also imitation butter extracts available that are made with artificial flavors. Imitation butter extracts are often less expensive than real butter extracts, but they may not have the same rich flavor.

Butter extract is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of recipes. It is a popular ingredient in cakes, cookies, muffins, and other baked goods. It can also be used to flavor coffee, tea, and other beverages. Butter extract can also be used to flavor popcorn, popcorn balls, and other snacks.
