Butter Buds® is a highly unique and versatile product line that Mile High Ingredients have represented for nearly two decades, and which has a proven track record throughout the varying levels of the food industry.

Butter Buds® are butter concentrates produced with real butterfat. Using a proprietary enzyme-modification process, the company unlocks butter’s hidden, potent flavor to create natural powdered butter concentrates that are as much as 80 times the flavor strength of real butter.

Because Butter Buds® are used at such low usage levels, they provide significant ingredient cost-savings. Additional benefits include flavor masking, flavor enhancement, improved mouth-feel and an overall improvement in rounding out harsh notes.

Low in fat, cholesterol and trans fat, Butter Buds® provide rich butter flavors while improving the nutritional profile of a variety of applications. Butter Buds® are Kosher and Halal certified.

Here are many proven industry applications:

  • Bakery
  • Confectionary
  • Nutraceutical
  • Savory
  • Snacking
  • Functional Foods
  • Health and Wellness
  • Sports Nutrition
