Intense heat treatment is not used in the manufacturing process. Consequently, butteroil lacks heated butter flavours. In the dairy products industry, it is used for recombination with skimmed milk powder to produce liquid milk and other milk products. Lecithin in butteroil is used to produce instant milk powder. In baking, butteroil can be sprayed on cracker surfaces to enhance gloss and appearance. It is also used in the chocolate manufacturing industry.The advantages of using butteroil are
No splattering or burn-on during sautéing;
Increased puff for pastries and pie shells;
Aroma and flavour enhancement in bakery items;
Control of fat bloom in chocolate candy; and
