What is Anhydrous Milk Fat (Butter Oil)?
Anhydrous milk fat (AMF) refers to a compound extracted by separating oil fat from the cream or milk through the process of centrifugation. It involves removing the water content from milk to procure the fat concentrate, which contains pure milk fat. It is yellow in color and possesses a buttery and cream-like texture. It is manufactured by chilling raw milk, standardizing it by adding fat, protein, and other nutrients, pasteurizing, aging, churning, vacuum treating, and finally refining to achieve accurate flavor and texture. It stays liquid at temperatures above 36 degrees and solidifies at temperatures below 16-17 degrees and does not contain any additives, preservatives, or fatty acids. It has a longer shelf life, which facilitates easy transportation and storage. It does not require refrigeration during transportation and the quality depends primarily on free fatty acid levels, contamination by other oils and fats, and measurement of oxidative deterioration, such as peroxide value and anisidine value. It offers numerous nutritional benefits and contains high quantities of vitamins A, D, E, and K2 and calcium which are essential for maintaining proper bone health, preventing the occurrence of arthritis, and boosting immunity. It is incorporated in a wide range of recombined dairy products, such as whole milk, cheese, spreads, and ice creams. It is added to soups and sauces for providing a smooth and creamy texture and is utilized in frying, deep frying, roasting, grilling, and sauce-making purposes. It is also employed in the production of shortbread, butter cookies, pound cakes, and pastries and incorporated into praline fillings, chocolate, and chocolate bars, as it forms less fat bloom on the surface of chocolates.
Anhydrous Milk Fat Market (Butter Oil) Trends:
At present, the increasing demand for AMF due to the shifting trend of consuming dairy-based diets represents one of the primary factors influencing the market positively.
