Butter is a dairy product made by churning fresh or fermented cream or milk. It is generally used as a spread and a condiment, as well as in cooking applications such as baking, sauce making, and frying.

Butter consists of butterfat, water and milk proteins. It's most frequently made from cows' milk, but can also be manufactured from the milk of other mammals, such as sheep, goats, buffalo, and yaks. Salt, flavorings and preservatives are sometimes added to butter.
