What is Clarified?

The History of Clarified Butter reaches back hundreds of years to the Middle East. Because Clarified Butter is durable and can withstand harsh conditions, it was widely used in Middle Eastern meals.

More recently Anhydrous butterfat or Clarified Butter was developed in the Quartermaster Food and Container Institute for the Armed Forces. It was designed specifically for use in the manufacture of dairy products with special emphasis on storage life for the Armed Forces overseas. Mixed with non-fat dry milk powder and other ingredients, it supplied the butterfat source in whole milk, ice cream, cottage cheese, and other specialty dairy products.

The process to clarify butter can be accomplished by heating stick butter and removing the moisture and milk solids. This process is labor intensive and can result in burned butter. Odell's uses a process that removes 99.95% of all moisture and all the milk solids. This leaves a pure butter concentrate called Clarified Butter. A by-product of fresh raw milk, this unique product requires sophisticated and costly equipment to manufacture Odell's high quality finished product.

ODELL'S has been selling clarified butter to the concession and gourmet restaurant industries for over 45 years.

ODELL'S Clarified Butter has an extended shelf life of 12 months when stored at temperatures of 40F to 65F. This is due to the moisture and curd extraction leaving 99.95% milk fat and 0.05% moisture content. ODELL'S Clarified Butter is 100% natural and kosher and contains no salt. Anhydrous butterfat is excellent for all uses of butter and gives a 25% greater yield than regular creamery butter.

Using ODELL'S Clarified Butter allows you to reduce the regular butter ingredient in all recipes by up to one-third.
