How to Adjust a Recipe for Salted or Unsalted Butter
by , July 13, 2017
Salted butter is a flavorful choice for buttering biscuits or toast and for general cooking, but in baking, many recipes require or recommend unsalted butter.
Here are the sodium amounts in some popular brands of salted butter:
- 920 mg in 1 stick Horizon Organic Salted Butter
- 720 mg in 1 stick of Land O Lakes Salted Butter
- 760 mg in 1 stick of Hannaford's store brand "My Essentials"
- 800 mg in 1 stick of Kerrygold Salted Butter
If you are using unsalted butter in a recipe which calls for salted butter, increase the salt amount using the same measurement.
