Body and Texture

The physical properties of butter that are noted by the senses are described by butter graders by means of appropriate qualifications of the terms body and texture. The exact meaning of these terms has not been clearly defined. Frequently they are used as if they had the same meaning. Certain properties such as hardness and softness refer to the body of butter, whereas properties such as openness refer to texture. But some of the properties, such as leak-iness or crumbliness, lead to confusion. Usually, most body and texture terms are used to describe a defect such as gritty, gummy, sticky, and the like.

Good butter should be of fine and close texture; have a firm, waxy body; and be sufficiently plastic to be spread-able at cold temperatures.
