Butter in 10 years
Saratoga Farms butter powder is a great butter substitute and lasts up to 10 years! High-quality canning facility
With a hermetically sealed and double-enameled #10 can, your food storage will keep its fresh flavor and remain isolated from harmful elements, chemicals, and pests. Use in recipes
Having a product like this butter powder in your pantry means that you won’t have to give up your favorite foods and recipes if disaster ever strikes you and your family. To many people, food storage just means having some wheat and instant milk somewhere in the house. But there is so much more you can do to ensure that you and your family will be taken care of in case of any sort of disaster. One of the best examples? Saratoga Farms Butter Powder.

Butter powder is a dehydrated butter that can be easily substituted for real butter in any of your favorite recipes. The butter is perfect for those looking at cooking dishes that require butter as one of the ingredients, however it is not recommended for those looking for butter in a solid state such as a stick of butter that you would find at your local grocery store, this butter will not set up even if refrigerated to behave like a cold stick of butter.

Think for a minute just how many of your recipes and foods require butter; now imagine what it would be like if you couldn’t access it for some reason. Even if it was just as simple as being out of a job and not having the finances to buy groceries or being out of butter and not wanting to make an extra trip to the grocery store. Having butter powder around can help make the most serious—or the most trivial—emergencies just a little less stressful.

Exactly what we wanted
Do you find this review helpful?  Yes No
Never having cooked with powdered butter, we were unsure what to expect. We were very pleased to find that cooking with the powder worked just as well as cooking with fresh butter. This is an indispensable component of our food storage.

Good product
Do you find this review helpful?  Yes No
This tastes wonderful and it is easy to prepair. Great for scramble eggs and French Toast. It is a bit tricky getting the mix of powder to water right. I selected the "con" of "not very felaxible" due to no real practical information for using the product, hit or miss is not real good but I still recommend it due to ease of use and taste.

You don't realize how much you'll miss butter
Do you find this review helpful?  Yes No
Butter has become a staple in our lives: bread, corn, baking, pancakes, etc...

In an emergency situation I want to not only survive, but to live comfortably. For only $15, you can have enough tasty butter powder that'll last on your shelf for 25 years. Definately worth it!

Nice product
Do you find this review helpful?  Yes No
This is a quality product, and sure to be a staple for most preppers. I recently made a "jar meal" of scalloped potatoes that included the butter powder. Turned out great and tasted about like what you would expect from a boxed product you would buy at the store and heat up in your oven. Very satisfied and would highly recommend this product, based on the sheer number of uses you will get out of it.

If the price seems to good to be true...it is.
Do you find this review helpful?  Yes No
No. Just NO. When I saw the advertised price for this, plus that it was on sale, I thought it seemed to good to be true. And alas, it is, because this isn't actually butter powder. I'm not sure what it ought to be called because it isn't exactly margarine powder either. Artificial butter powder? Butter-flavor powder? Something besides butter powder in any case. Real butter powder sold for baking contains nothing but butter minus its water and a little added powdered milk or buttermilk to make it "powder." If a shelf life more than a few months is needed, it also contains some kind of antioxidant/s to prevent rancidity. A few manufacturers will also add silicon dioxide to keep it more powdery with less clumping, but that's the absolute end of the list of what ought to be in anyone's butter powder.
The ingredient list for this stuff? 
The Ready Store #10 can
Butter Blend [Butter (Cream, Salt & Annatto Extract), Nonfat Dry Milk,
Buttermilk, Salt, Sour Cream (Cultured Cream, Nonfat Dry Milk), Disodium Phosphate, Natural & Artificial Flavors, Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Color (Extractives of Annatto & Tumeric)], Maltodextrin, Partially Hydrogenated Soybean Oil, Soybean Oil, Corn Syrup Solids, Salt, Xantham Gum, Sodium Caseinate, Mono & Diglycerides, Contains 2% Or Less of the Following: Silicon Dioxide (Anticaking)
$20.46($19.49 sale)/2 lb 12 oz (equal to 7-3/4 lb butter)
up to 10 year shelf life

Holy moly, that pretty much a list of all the things in processed food that you don't want to be eating. Yep, it's cheaper than anyone else's butter powder, but that would be because hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, and xanthum gum are a heck of a lot cheaper than butter. Buy the Ready Store's real butter in cans and/or actual butter powder from some other supplier.

For comparison, I paste below my comparative butter powder shopping list. The first product is the kind of butter powder sold to bakeries. No additives, but only a 10-month shelf life. The others are various versions of butter powder with a longer shelf life. (Although the listed shelf lives differ, the truth is the stuff all has about the same useful lifespan. You should preferably use it up in 3 years and probably no more than 5, and you shouldn't keep it around after opening more than about 6 months, 3 at the outside if not kept cool.) Food storage Vendor #1's product is my butter powder of choice because it is preserved with nothing more than mixed forms of vitamin E and the fat-soluble form of vitamin C with no other additives. Butter powder is one food storage item for which you really want to look at the whole ingredient list, not just the price per can and weight of the can contents. However, anything on the list below would be better than this imitation butter powder.
