ISO: Whey Butter

  • 6

Hi everyone.

Just wanted to ask if anyone knows a reliable source for whey butter in the GTA area. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

  1. I've only found it at Whole Foods.
    Here is the brand they don't list retailers that I could find but do have contact info for questions

    It's pretty tasty. I did come across something that said they sold it at Fiesta Farms as well but can't confirm.

      I believe Alex farm locations carry this, including st.Lawrence market

        I've found it at both Fiesta Farms and St Lawrence (although I don't think it was at Alex's - recall it was towards the NE end, but not sure exactly where).

        I find the taste dominates everything I use it in - now prefer a 50/50 blend with 'regular' butter.

        But have switched to cultured butter as I now prefer that - also at Fiesta Farms - and not sure the Whey is currently in stock there.

          Hi estufarian. The cultured butter you mention ... is that the 84 churn butter by Stirling?

          1. re: uberathlete

            No - definitely NOT - I was really disappointed in that. The taste test I did had it placed badly by everyone (my guess is that was because it is 'slightly salted'. Those who liked salted found it too bland; those who like unsalted found it too salty).
            But - to be fair- I didn't use it in a baking test, where it's rumoured to be better than the alternatives.
            I use the Lactantia Salted Cultured (? only available at Fiesta Farms - the Unsalted is available at several places).

    2. Stirling whey butter is at Quickert's in Pickering. Used to be Reid's, which seems to be re-organized but much the same.
