Anhydrous Milkfat (AMF)

Anhydrous Milkfat (AMF) is derived from fresh pasteurised cream or butter (made from whole cow’s milk), which is pasteurised and then centrifugally separated to produce a finished product containing not less than 99.8% of butterfat. AMF is also known as Concentrated Butter or Butter Oil.

Our AMF’s can be used in many food applications for their rich dairy flavour and creaminess, like: bakery, pastry, ice cream, processed cheese, recombined dairy products, chocolate & confectionery. AMF is convenient to use in liquid form because it is easy to mix with, and meter into other products.

Main composition:

  • butterfat min. 99.8%
  • moisture max. 0.2%
  • free fatty acids (oleid acid) max. 0.3%
  • melting point between 28 - 32˚C
  • pale creamy/yellowish 

The product has a long shelf life of approx. 12 months from date of manufacture (depending on its packaging) and it should be stored in a dry place at ambient temperature (without refrigeration). Do not expose the product to direct sunlight or to strong odours. Once open, use the product within 24 hours.

Packaging 
Our AMF is available in new steel drums from 190 to 210 kg or in strong export cartons containing 25 kg net weight each.
