Deutsch: Butter
Butter is a dairy product made from the fat and protein components of milk or cream. It is a semi-solid emulsion at room temperature, consisting of approximately 80% butterfat. It is used at room temperature as a spread, melted as a condiment, and used as an ingredient in baking, sauce making, pan frying, and other cooking procedures.

In the food context, butter is a dairy product made from the milk or cream of cows, and it has a high fat content. Butter is commonly used in cooking and baking for its flavor, texture, and ability to enhance the taste of other ingredients. Here are some examples of how butter is used in food:

  1. Baked goods: Butter is a common ingredient in baked goods such as cakes, cookies, and pastries.

  2. Sauteed and fried dishes: Butter can be used for sauteing or frying vegetables, meats, and seafood.

  3. Toast and sandwiches: Butter can be spread on toast or used to make grilled cheese sandwiches.

  4. Topping for vegetables: Melted butter can be used as a topping for vegetables such as steamed broccoli or corn on the cob.

  5. Sauces: Butter can be used as a base for sauces such as beurre blanc and hollandaise.

  6. Popcorn: Melted butter is often used to coat popcorn for a savory snack.

  7. Compound butter: Butter can be mixed with herbs, spices, and other ingredients to make compound butter, which can be used as a spread or to flavor dishes.

It's worth noting that butter is high in saturated fat and cholesterol, so it should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet.
