Buttermilk is the nearly milkfat-free fluid remaining from the butter-making process (i.e., the churning fermented or non-fermented milk and cream). Buttermilk is also produced by fermentation of fluid skim milk, either by spontaneous souring by the action of lactic acid-forming or aroma-forming bacteria, or by inoculation of heated milk with pure bacterial cultures (cultured buttermilk).

Buttermilk may be pasteurized or sterilized.
