Organic European Stye Butter - Straus Creamery- one pound
$11.80 16 oz
HIGH BUTTERFAT AND LOWER MOISTURE DELIVER SUPERIOR TASTE AND CULINARY RESULTS.
Crafted with pure, simple ingredients, and minimally processed. No gums, thickeners, stabilizers, artificial ingredients, or coloring agents are ever used in our butter. You can taste the difference.
By law, American butter must contain at least 80 % butterfat while the minimum for European butter is 82 % butterfat. Straus Family Creamery’s butterfat content exceeds both standards with 85% butterfat content. In fact, our butterfat content is higher than almost any available. Our butter has extremely low moisture, resulting in flakier crusts that rise higher and brown more evenly when baking. It also won’t burn as easily when sautéing.
The sweet, coastal pasture grasses our cows graze are high in beta-carotene, which gives our butter a richer, more yellow color than most butters. The grasses also give our butter its unique Straus flavor.
Named “One of the Top Premium Butters in America” by Food & Wine magazine, it’s a favorite of culinary professionals and home chefs alike.

A Straus cow’s life isn’t all that complicated. When the weather allows it, they spend the day out on pasture, overlooking Tomales Bay. At night and in wet or winter weather, the cows sleep in an open barn that is fitted with cushioned cow mats and natural bedding. Straus cows are in a closed herd, to avoid the risk of infections from outside, and they are never treated with hormones or antibiotics.. . .
