Product Description

SACO cultured Buttermilk Blend, brings the goodness of real churned buttermilk back to today's table. It is the only product of its kind available on the retail market today. Made from sweet cream, churned buttermilk, which is the by-product of butter making, SACO Buttermilk Blend is the first real buttermilk available to consumers in over 50 years. Fluid buttermilk, found in today's dairy case, is merely cultured skim milk and contains no real buttermilk. Real buttermilk contains natural emulsifiers found in old-fashioned, churned buttermilk. Today's liquid buttermilk is merely cultured skim milk and contains no real buttermilk. The emulsifiers in real buttermilk, like SACO's Buttermilk Blend, results in baked goods that have superior volume, lighter and more uniform texture, fine crumb, golden brown crust, extended freshness and a fragrant aroma that is churned buttermilk's 'claim to fame'. Since real buttermilk is a form of skim milk, it is often included in reduced-calorie, reduced-fat recipes.

I've used the Saco Cultured Buttermilk Powder Blend for at least 10 years as it makes a fine buttermilk substitute. You can add this to any and all baked goods that call for buttermilk in the recipes. I've found the buttermilk biscuits and pancakes made with the Buttermilk blend taste like they were made with fresh buttermilk. My yeast breads and rolls turn out just fine too when I need to use buttermilk to finish the recipe.

Highly recommend.

Works great in baking. Mix the dry powdered buttermilk first with the dry ingredients, then add the appropriate amount of liquid to the liquid ingredients. This avoids the problem of lumps.

I wanted to try my hand at making my own bread, so I purchased a bread machine. The King Arthur Flour Baking Companion says according to their tests, the bread machine did the best job kneading bread.

The standard recipe for my machine called for using dry milk powder, so I used SACO. The bread is out of this world!! Once you open a can, then it has to be refrigerated. But the crust and crumb of this bread is so much better than what I expected. I will always keep this product on hand. It is truly a superior product!!

I just in the past two years have gotten interested in the science of baking. I find comfort in the precision that is required to create biscuits, scones and bread. I kept running across recipes that asked for buttermilk. I'd go out and buy the buttermilk, use what I needed and eventually have to throw out the rest. Every time I had to throw out this wonderful ingredient I cringed. One day I noticed Saco Cultured Buttermilk Blend on the shelf. I picked up the container and read the label and much to my pleasure I saw that it just isn't a milk copy like a creamer for coffee, it is actually buttermilk. I bought it and took it home to try not knowing what to expect. The first thing I made with it was buttermilk waffles and they were perfect. Next biscuits they came out perfectly. Then corn bread it was great too. Since then I've made scones and bread with Saco Buttermilk. I've never been disappointed with the results.
So here is the deal. When you use this product pay very close attention to how to mix water with your current use. Sometimes it pays to just Saco buttermilk as one of the dry ingredients and others mix it as a liquid. Once you master that, you will never have to throw out buttermilk again.

What a great value! My wife and I eat buttermilk waffles at least twice a week. This powdered buttermilk is delicious. Mixes easily with the other ingredients. Sure beats spoiled or outdated liquid buttermilk.

I have used this product in the past with great results. Just be sure you mix it into the dry ingredients and not the water. I don't usually have it in the frig and it's nice to be able to make something calling for buttermilk without having to go to the store. I haven't had a problem in the past with it getting hard. I highly recommend it.

Ok, I admit it, I HATE the tase of fresh buttermilk!! yuck! BUT I love the flavor in many recipes where only the dreadful stuff will work. This is my answer! I keep this on hand at all times to make my buttermilk biscuits and pancakes. I never have to worry about running to the market to buy a quart for some recipe that I want to try. Handy, handy, handy!

Arrived with one canister broken open. Salvaged the order. Thoughtless packing and a flimsy canister makes breakage during shipping a common occurrence with this particular product.

I'm using this to make bread, pancakes, and the like and have been pleased with the product. Would have been thrilled but for the broken canister.

I called amazon customer service and they offered me two options: 1. Receive another shipment at no cost or 2. A refund.

Since I need the buttermilk powder I had them ship me a new order. Though another canister was broken open, I did get two that were good. The expiration date is good until 2015! Suspect I can store it in the freezer until I use it.

Customer service was incredibly good and they gave 1 day shipping on the replacement order.

I would make sure that this is ordered separately from anything else you might need on amazon so it doesn't make a mess on anything but itself!

Thanks amazon for the awesome customer service!
