Bob's Redmill Buttermilk Powder Volume Conversions

Bob's Redmill label lacks common conversions for this product, so I will provide some estimated, more commonly used volumes here.

Firstly.  You might ask, "Why use such a degraded powder when you can buy fresh (cultured) buttermilk at the store?"

The store bought buttermilk is not a true buttermilk as it's cultured from milk.  Attaining real buttermilk is difficult unless you live nearby a creamery.  As a next best substitute while attaining best taste, this buttermilk powder seems more ideal for most baking needs.  Real buttermilk has a very different texture compared to cultured and is also much sweeter.

Enough with the rambling, here's the estimated conversions.

On the label:

To Make a Quart of Buttermilk
Mix 1/2 cup Dry Buttermilk Powder with 3 1/2 cups Water.

My Conversions:

2 Cups of Buttermilk

1 Cup of Buttermilk
Mix 1/8 cup (2 Tablespoons) Dry Buttermilk Powder with 7/8 cups Water

1/2 Cup of Buttermilk
Mix 1 Tablespoon Dry Buttermilk Powder with 7 Tablespoons Water


To make 1/2 Cup of Buttermilk
Add One Tablespoon Dry Buttermilk Powder to an empty measuring cup.  Add the remainder with water and viola, one cup re hydrated buttermilk.
