So let’s get real for a sec… those of us who LOVE popcorn also tend to share affections for the liquid gold known as butter! Popcorn is soooo good and butter is the necessary evil – right?
Wrong! If you haven’t been introduced before, meet Clarified Butter, or as we like to call it “Butter 2.0”. There’s no need to feel guilty when snacking on our Stella*s Clarified Butter with Brazilian Sea Salt or our decadent S’mores when you know that the butter won’t bite back.
Seriously! Did you know that regular butter consist of only 80% of fat? Believe it or not, the other 20% of is actually a combination of water and milk proteins which is why we tend to avoid it. In comparison, vegetable or coconut oil are 100% fat which is pretty consistent with most of the fats you cook with.
Still skeptical? Clarifying butter gets rid of the 20% we don’t want and leaves us with the buttery milk fat. This is not only healthier and guilt-free but it enhances the buttery flavor that we all love. So snack easy friends, Clarified Butter has saved the day!
