Moreover, is all buttermilk fat free?
Today, buttermilk is not a byproduct of butter-making, but is made from nonfat or low-fat milk that is “cultured” with lactic acid bacteria. Cultured buttermilk is low in fat and calories, but maintains its traditional tangy flavor and creamy texture.
Similarly, is low fat buttermilk the same as buttermilk? The buttermilk found in your local store, often called cultured buttermilk, is different because it's made by adding bacterial cultures to whole, low-fat or skim milk and letting it ferment. One cup of low-fat buttermilk only has 98 calories, compared to 152 calories in whole buttermilk.
Just so, can low fat buttermilk be used in place of regular buttermilk?
Fat coats the proteins, making them less likely to clump. So you can use non- and low-fat buttermilk interchangeably in most recipes. OK FOR BISCUITS AND PANCAKES: Nonfat buttermilk works just fine. NOT OK FOR CUSTARD PIE: Filling made with nonfat buttermilk turns grainy and curdled.
How do you make nonfat buttermilk?
Try a Non-Dairy Buttermilk Simply follow any of the earlier recipes using lemon juice (1 tablespoon), vinegar (1 tablespoon), or cream of tartar (1-3/4 tablespoon) mixed with 1 cup of your choice of non-dairy milk to make the buttermilk.
