A butter mold can be a lifesaver in the mold testing process. 

The mold is usually removed from a batch of butter, and then a test can be done. 

Once the mold is removed, a test kit containing a mold test material can be used to test the butter for mold growth.

“There is a very high success rate with this process,” said Lisa J. Gresk, vice president and chief of research for the butter research company American Butterfield.

“There is very little risk.

It’s easy to get the product out and it’s very safe.”

“We have a very, very small number of mold samples that were tested and we had a very small percentage of those tested negative,” Gresky added.

This is why, she said, a mold testing kit is not the only tool that can be applied to butter production. 

“Mold testing is a tool that is absolutely essential in order to ensure that our butter is safe for consumers, but it can also be used in a pinch when you are in a manufacturing process that is more than 50% mold, for example,” Gersk said. 

Molds grow in a variety of environments, and some can grow more quickly than others. 

For instance, the butter produced by an aging farm in Wisconsin can be more susceptible to mold growth than the butter from a growing factory in the United States, according to the Food and Drug Administration. 

If you are trying to determine whether a butter is mold-free, use the mold test kit to test a batch to ensure you have not gotten mold.

The process of testing a batch is not only easy, it is also free. 

There is no charge to use the test kit, which you can order online.

Mold test kits are available for $30 and can be ordered online, in bulk, or in-store at your local dairy, grocery store, or food service company. 

It can be important to keep in mind that mold testing is not a foolproof method.

According to the FDA, “Mold tests are not 100% accurate and do not guarantee that mold is not present.

However, they can help determine whether mold is present in the product.” 

Mold is an environmental toxin that can damage food.

If you have any questions about mold testing, you can contact your local food safety inspector.
