The bakery sector has the highest consumption of dry butter, especially the foodservice sector.

Whereas, in the United States dry butter is made up of 82% of the fat on the weight basis, used for the same purpose as in the European region.

Manufacturers are Promoting Dry Butter as an Essential Ingredient for Bakery Products

With the few alterations in the regular butter, it exerts the similar properties to that of dry butter and can be used in the recipes, replacing dry butter. Nevertheless, the manufacturers are promoting the use of dry butter even to amateurs. This is because the price of the dry butter is high than the regular butter.
