Have you ever wondered why most baking recipes call for unsalted butter? Well, I have done some research and have found that the main reason that bakers use unsalted butter is to control the salt content in their baking. This is due to the fact that salted butter does not have a consistent salt content from brand to brand. Another thing that I have found is that unsalted butter might be better quality butter compared to a poorer grade that needs to be salted. Not sure, but I do notice a difference in the creaminess between the two butters unsalted is the creamier one. I usually use unsalted in my baking, but I prefer salted on a slice of good bread!
