What’s the difference between Salted Butter and Unsalted Butter?
There is only one difference between the two – salt. Both types of butter are made with cream except that salted butter contains salt and unsalted butter doesn’t. The amount of salt in salted butter will vary by brand.
Salt adds flavor to the butter and, since salt is a preservative, salted butter will last longer in the refrigerator (about 5 months versus unsalted butter, which has a shelf life of about 3 months).
