More Tips about Dehydrated Butter Powder

Reconstituting butter powder:
To reconstitute butter powder you'll use one part butter powder
to one part water. Give it a good mix, then bring to boil for
around five minutes. This is an important step because the only
way to ensure a nice texture to your butter is to boil the mixture.
Don't just mix with cold water you will have a lumpy unappealing
butter that's more like cottage cheese. Next, let the mixture cool
for around 30 minutes, preferably in a refrigerator, though it's not
necessary it will taste better. If you're camping, put the mixture
in your cooler. Look to our refrigeration options page.

  • How's the taste of reconstituted butter powder?
    Dehydrated butter powder tastes good if you mix it properly.
    Butter is well worth having although you probably won't be
    using butter powder to spread on toast unless you have
    refrigeration (the butter mixture should chill for 30 minutes).
    Another butter option for bread is red feather butter, which
    is real canned butter from New Zealand, pictured at the top
    of the page. Just open the can and at room temperature you
    have delicious, creamy spreadable butter.

  • How's the texture of reconstituted butter powder?
    Dehydrated butter powder won't reconstitute into the creamy
    butter you crave. You'll feel disappointed particularly if you
    try adding an oil as you'll taste the oil and not the butter.
    Below is how to use dehydrated butter the way the
    manufacturers intended...

  • Should I make my own butter powder? Dry food prepping
    is fun, but butter powder is tricky and actually expensive to
    make at home.

  • Can you use butter powder to fry? One of the big appeals
    of butter powder is as a substitute for oils that may quickly
    go rancid. If you're going to fry, though, then don't try butter
    powder. While it's possible, you could risk ruining your
    precious food. Instead use Red Feather canned butter. If
    your primary goal was to use butter powder for frying you
    may be disappointed. Here's the thing: butter powder is
    immensely useful in an off grid situation as a flavoring
    agent. Also, you should have some Red Feather in your
    larder. It's good to have them both.

  • Can you take butter powder camping? Yes you can,
    however the can is rather large to bring with you for short
    trips and inconvenient and bulky for camping trips. Below is
    a video on how to make powdered butter packets!
