Butter is used in the kitchen for baking, roasting, or brushing. And anyone who has tried different types of butter knows that butter not only costs different amounts, but can also taste completely different. So Stiftung Warentest took a closer look at 30 butter products. Low acid butter (15 products), sweet creamy butter (13 products), and sour butter (2 products) were tested.
Branded products such as Kerrygold, Weihenstephan and Landliebe have been tested, as well as specialty and discount branded products such as “Aldi Süd Milfina German Brand Butter Slightly Acidic”, and “Rewe yes! German Brand Butter Low Acidity” .”.
Stiftung Warentest divided the butter test into categories such as ‘organoleptic judgment’, ‘harmful substances’, ‘packaging’ and ‘dispersibility’ as well as ‘advertising’ and ‘microbiological quality’. Overall, every second butter was convincing in the test. 1st place in the Stiftung Warentest test They are shared by producers:
- Edeka is good, cheap German butter that is mildly acidified
- Sachsen Milch Branded German Butter Slightly Acidic
Both butters have an overall rating of 1.8 and are particularly impressive in the areas of “microbiological quality” and “dispersibility”.
With a score of 1.9, two butters “Aldi Süd Milfina German brand lightly acidic” and “Frau Antje Beste lightly acidic butter” landed right behind.
