Butter Buds Food Ingredients has introduced a certified organic line of natural butter, cheese and cream concentrates. The products offer the flavour profile of real dairy butter, cheese and cream but add virtually no fat or cholesterol.

One unit of Butter Buds yields the flavour strength of 8 to 80 units of butter. Low fat content and very low applications levels mean that this ingredient contributes negligible fat to final formulations.
