The fat from cow’s milk, milkfat, is normally available to the baker or bakery technologist as cream, butter and anhydrous milkfat (AMF) (or butteroil). Since the early 1970s, fractionated butter/butteroil products have also become available for bakery applications. Several other milk-based products contain milkfat, in the range 5–90% fat, and they have all found applications in bakery products (Figure 5.1).
