Introduction

In the past, butter was made in a butter churn. Today, dairies have taken over the production. Butter can be made not only from cow‘s milk, but also from sheep‘s or goat‘s milk. Butter cannot be made from homogenized milk. During homogenization, the fat globules contained in the milk are broken up by subjecting the milk to high pressure and pressing it through fine nozzles. This prevents the cream from segregating and settling on top of the milk, and the fat remains evenly distributed in the milk.
