Due to its ingredients, taste and consistency, half-fat butter is a butter-like product with significantly less butter taste. For the production of half-fat butter, water is added with the aid of emulsifiers. This process significantly reduces the fat while maintaining the same volume of half-fat butter. Half-fat butter contains only a The F.D.M. value related to dry matter, also depending on the water content of the cheese.
