Butter is a dairy food product. It is made by moving the cream obtained from whole milk for a long time. The fat in the milk separates from the liquid. The fat is butter.

Butter is commonly used as a spread on bread, as a main ingredient in biscuits, as a shortening agent in some baking and cooking recipes, and sometimes as a frying medium.

Most of the time, butter is made from cows' milk, butter can also be made from the milk of other mammals, like sheep, goats, buffalo, and yaks. Salt, flavorings and preservatives are sometimes added to butter.

Many people use butter in their foods instead of oil. Butter is preserved by keeping it in the refrigerator.
