What’s the Difference between Pistachio Paste & Butter?

Fiddyment Farms Pistachio Butter and Paste


Pistachio Butter and Paste are both unique pistachio products that we offer! Some people haven’t heard of them or don’t have much experience with them, so it’s natural for anyone to be curious.

Truth is you don’t have to be a famed chef or a food connoisseur to enjoy either one of these products right at home!

You might be wondering which one you should purchase or you might want to know what each of them is used for. Here are some quick points that can guide you:

  • How to use each one… Pistachio Paste is most commonly used and best known for its use in flavoring baked goods, gelato, ice cream, confections, pastries or in gourmet cooking. The Pistachio Butters’ common uses entail eating it spread over foods or as a dip. They are both delicious in their own ways.
  • Let’s talk texture… The paste is specially made to have a very smooth and fluid consistency, making it easy to mix into foods and batters. A natural sweetness is brought out more in the Pistachio Paste, which gives whatever it’s added to a rich pistachio flavor. Pistachio Butter has a thick consistency much like peanut or almond butter.
  • In case you’re wondering about how it’s made… They are both freshly milled, the difference between the two is that the paste is further refined in a longer, multi-step process to get it smoother and more fluid.

A similarity that they both share is that they are both 100% pistachio, there are no fillers or additives such as sugar and food coloring, it’s rich in texture and has a true pistachio taste.
