Butter making is a multi-step process, though generally a simple, time-honoured tradition.
Butter is as old as Western civilization. As many good things in life happen accidentally, butter was also made firstly thanks to a happy coincidence. The butter manufacturing process generally is a simple, time-honoured tradition: it is easy as this – cream is separated from milk, the cream is churned till it thickens and voilà – Bon appétit!
Ever wondered how butter gets its yellow colour? The answer – absolutely naturally! Butter making is a multi-step process, starting yet with cows that eat grass and flowers containing beta-carotene giving it a yellow hue. Such beta-carotene-rich grass and flower diet is a key to yellow colour, which appears because of the natural pigment carotene. Carotene is also a reason why butter is a source of vitamin A.
