White butter is a dairy product made from churning or agitating cream, separating the fat from other milk constituents. The cream used for making butter can be either sweet or sour, with butter made from sour cream having a more pronounced flavor. The pure cream is churned until most of the water content is separated, resulting in a solid butter product. One hundred grams of fresh butter contains approximately 736 calories.
