Wanted to warn all of you that Great Value Unsalted Butter (ie Walmart and Sam's) has "natural flavorings" and both my son and I reacted badly to it when I baked with it last night. We didn't eat anything else that we haven't had before and I'm positive it was the culprit. It was a stick that I was given without the box, but I wouldn't normally check the box on butter, for goodness sake. Now I know.

I'm not sure I would trust it, but the "regular" salted butter doesn't have the natural flavorings according to web information I found.

most if not all unsalted butter is problematic

About a year or so ago, I think that I saw natural flavorings in Tillamook salted butter and avoided buying it and opted for store brand which wasn't on sale and Tillamook was.

Thanks, Sara. Have you ever seen salted butter that is a problem? I wonder if I tell friends and family that "salted butter" is OK, if that would be safe?

I have some Tillamook salted butter, and the only ingredients are cream and salt. I've been fine with that, and Challenge salted butter, as well as the Fred Meyer brand. I did have problems with Darigold salted butter, however. In case that's helpful to anyone.
