2018-04-08 08:00:49

First, the unique flavor of the keto cake using butter is unmatched by the use of vegetable oil. Therefore, parents who have the conditions may wish to use butter to make ketogenic small cakes. However, when parents buy butter, do they distinguish between butter, cream and vegetable butter? Today, I will talk about this problem. Note: When buying butter, pay special attention to the difference between the fat content of the butter you use when calculating with the catering software and the fat content on the packaging label of the butter you want to buy in the supermarket. 2. If you see that my recipe says "butter" but the package in the diagram says "cream," don't be confused. To figure out the relationship, remember the simplest sentence: "Butter is cream." If you want to know more about it, please read on. butter is called butter in English. It is a fat extracted from milk, so it is also called "butter" in some places. Butter contains about 80% fat, the rest is water and other milk ingredients, has a natural rich frankincense. Butter in the refrigerated state is relatively hard solid, and at about 28 degrees Celsius, will become very soft, at this time, you can be whipped to make it wrapped in air, the volume becomes bulked, commonly known as "whipped". Butter dissolves into a liquid state above 34 degrees Celsius. It should be noted that butter can only be dismissed in the softened state, and can not be dismissed after melting. Butter is either unsalted or salted. Generally, unsalted butter is used in baking, and if you use salted butter, you need to reduce the amount of salt in the recipe accordingly. However, because the salt content of different salted butter products is not consistent, and depending on the amount of butter used, there is a calculation problem, so it is not recommended to use salted butter in baking. Why, then, is butter called cream? This is because in our national standards, it is called cream (please refer to GB 5415-1999). Butter, we can understand as a folk name, is not officially recognized. Because the word butter is more common in folk and easier for everyone to understand, I still use the word "butter" in all my recipes. This, however, creates a problem. Because in our popular parlance, "cream" refers to the mounted cream, the kind of birthday cake spread, in our concept, it is called cream. But in fact, the "Cream" used for this decoration is called "thin cream" in the national standard, the English name is Cream, and the trade name is generally "fresh cream" (which can be divided into light cream and heavy cream). So, unless the kind of very unprofessional online recipe, you see any recipe, as long as the word "cream", there is no doubt that it is referring to butter. Please see, this is the production of "cream", that is, BUTTER, you can clearly see the English name is butter. This is a salted butter made by Ancha. On the front is the name "Ancha Cream New Zealand", while on the back is the name "Ancha Butter Brick". But whatever the Chinese name, the English name is "BUTTER". Therefore, if you are afraid of buying the wrong BUTTER, just look at the English name is "butter". Next, it's time to talk about plant-based butter. The English name of the vegetable butter is margarine, and there are many other Chinese names for it, such as artificial cream, margarine, and transliterated Marcheline, Marcheline, and so on. See so many names if you feel a little "dizzy", then, remember its English name, so that you will not buy the wrong. Vegetable butter, as the name suggests, is not really butter. It is a substitute for butter made by partially hydrogenating vegetable oil and adding artificial flavors to mimic the taste of butter, and can be used in place of butter in general occasions. And, because it's man-made, it has a very flexible melting point. Different plant butters have very different melting points. Let's review the melting point of butter. About 34 degrees, very soft at 28 degrees, very hard at 0-4 degrees when refrigerated. But vegetable butter is very different. Depending on the variety, some remain softened even when refrigerated, this kind of vegetable butter is suitable for spreading bread; Some of them are still very hard even at 28 degrees, and this vegetable butter is good for using as a coating, so it's much easier to make a puff pastry with it than butter. If you ask: Since vegetable butter has so many benefits, can it completely replace butter? In theory it may be, but in practice it is impossible - and that may be the gap between ideal and reality. The first weakness of plant-based butter is its poor aroma and taste. How can artificial flavors match the natural flavor of butter? What's more, the taste is unpleasant to eat. So, if you want to make a high grade pastry, bakers still stick to butter. The second weakness of plant butter is more deadly, vegetable oil after hydrogenation, will produce trans fatty acids, early people do not know enough about trans fatty acids, so plant butter is widely used. However, with the deepening of research, the harm of trans fatty acids is more and more recognized, especially the harm to blood. So, if you don't use vegetable butter, don't use it. Plant, not necessarily healthy:) The picture below shows the plant butter produced by Mei Mei, in blocks, this plant butter has a melting point similar to butter. Both the Dumex brand and the brand also produce a boxed vegetable butter that remains soft after being refrigerated, as mentioned above, and is easy to apply. Finally, a word about the name "butter". As mentioned earlier, it is another name for "butter". But in reality, it's also a confusing name. Because there is also a kind of fat made from cow fat, also called butter (similar to the lard made from pig fat). However, this butter taste is very poor, generally do not need to eat. So, in a pastry recipe, if you see the name "butter," it's still butter. After reading the above introduction, I believe that you have some knowledge of butter purchase and cooking, parents can choose the right butter in the nearby supermarket to make a more fragrant and nutritious cake for their children.
