What makes Straus butter so different?

Straus butter has a butterfat content of 85-86%, that’s much higher than regular butter. It also means that the moisture levels are lower: It doesn’t burn as easily in the pan and it makes flakier crusts when used for baking. That’s why chefs love it so much. You may also notice that it is yellower than other butters. The sweet, coastal grasses our cows graze are high in beta-carotene, which makes the butter yellow. The grasses also give our butter its unique Straus flavor.
