Butter, Italy (Milan)

Burro delle Alpi This page contains the weekly wholesale prices for Butter produced in Italy with regard to the following varieties: The Butter prices recorded over the last ten weeks are listed in the tables, while the graphs to the side illustrate price trends over the last three years.

The graph below compares prices over a given period for Pasteurised Butter, Reg. (EC) 1234/07 Butter, Churned Butter and Centrifuged Butter as recorded by the Milan Chamber of Commerce.
Butter types are different basing on the different ways in which the cream is obtained:
Sweet cream butter - Cream obtained through the centrifugation of the milk Centrifuged butter is the butter produced with the cream obtained from the centrifugation of the milk. This type of butter has the highest quality.
Burro di affioramento (Italy) - Cream that rises to the top of the tanks used for skimming the milk Butter produced with this cream is frequent in the areas of cheese production, especially in Italy, where the production of Grana Padano and Parmigiano Reggiano requires partially skimmed milk.
Lactic butter Butter produced with cream to which has been added a certain amount of lactic cultures for the fermentation to improve taste and smell
Whey butter - Cream obtained through the centrifugation of the whey Whey is a byproduct of the cheese production, but it can contain a certain % of fat, which is extracted through the centrifugation of the whey and used then to produce butter. Whey butter is usually mixed with the other types of butter. The quality of this butter is lower but it is usually mixed with the other types of butter to get a cheaper composition.
* All types of cream are generally pasteurized (it is not the butter being pasteurized).
* The butter is then obtained by the churning of the cream, that allows the separation of the solid fat and the buttermilk.

Butter Reg.CEE 1234/07 Butter produced exclusively with cream or milk in a company recognized by the European Union having at least 82% fat and maximum 16% water.
Pasteurized Butter Butter produced with pasteurized cream that come from milk or whey.
Churned Butter Butter for further re processing (can be not-pasteurized).
