Buttermilk powder is made from real buttermilk so this powder does not contain the live cultures needed to produce cheese and yogurt. This means it doesn’t contain lactic acid, making it suitable for those intolerant to lactose. Buttermilk powder can be used in any recipe calling for buttermilk, such as waffles, pancakes, scones, cupcakes or biscuits. Simply mix the buttermilk powder with the other dry ingredients and then use water to supply the necessary liquid. Buttermilk powder won’t spoil like liquid buttermilk. This makes it more economical and less wasteful, as liquid buttermilk is often wasted after only a small amount is used in a specific recipe.
