Goat Butter - Gourmet Guide
June 12, 2019 | By Dave Mattingly
Goat Butter is a wonderful gourmet butter alternative to the everyday cow's milk butter. Goat Butter, made from 100% Goat's Milk, is almost pure white in color because any yellow beta carotene that is present in goat's milk is converted to Vitamin A. Unlike cow's milk butter, Goat Butter contains no casein, the ingredient which often triggers allergies in lactose-intolerant individuals.
The flavor of Goat Butter is sweet and tangy and its texture is smooth and creamy. Goat Butter has the same consistency and texture of cow's milk butter, but seems to melt at a slightly lower temperature, making it an excellent spread. Goat Butter is ideal for cooking, and can be spread on toast, added to eggs, or used in just about any way you already use cow's milk butter.
Goat Butter, available from St. Helen's Farm in England and Sevre et Belle in France, is a unique departure from the everyday cow's milk butter. To find Goat Butter and the best gourmet foods and gift baskets online, begin your search at igourmet.com.
