Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How Much Is an Individual Butter Portion?

The size of an individual butter portion depends on the shape selected. Our Butterball® Butter Premium Balls, for example, are 0.25 oz each, while our butter medallions range from 0.228 oz to 1 oz each.

How Are Your Individual Butter Portions Packaged?

It depends on the type of butter product you choose. Our Butterball Butter Premium Balls, for example, come in two resealable, gusseted bags with a zipper-style closure. Our portion-controlled and ready-to-serve roses & rosettes are packed into individual compartments, which separates each rose and eliminates breakage during shipping and handling. We also offer individually wrapped butter in bulk (minimum order quantity required—contact us to learn more) with the availability to print your logo on the wrapper.

How Do You Store Individual Butter?

Our butter products store frozen, which means you can save on refrigeration space.

How Many Individual Butter Pats Are Included in an Order?

Again, it depends on the type of butter product you choose. A case of Butterball® Butter Premium Balls®, for example, includes two 3-lb. bags of butter, translating to hundreds of individual butter balls.

Is Butterball® Farms Butter Gluten-Free?

Our standard salted and unsalted butters are gluten-free as well as certified Kosher. However, our flavored butter dollops each have their own ingredients. Be sure to check the ingredient and allergy product specifications before purchasing any of our flavored butters if gluten or other ingredients are of concern.

What’s the Difference Between Salted and Unsalted Butter?

Mainly, salt! Salted butter is often chosen for savory meals and tabletop use, while unsalted butter is a favorite of bakers (and anyone who wants more control over their sodium intake). However, these are simply preferences, not hard-and-fast rules. Our salted and unsalted butter perform well in all cooking, baking, and tasting scenarios.
