Addie, you're buying the wrong one. Spend the extra $$ and get the "real buttermilk". If you like buttermilk for baking or drinking, Kate's Buttermilk is the real deal. Every store by me sells it, but Market Basket is the cheapest, of course.

After watching "How It's Made" TV show, I never realized that the process of making butter yielded a lot of excess liquid, which they sell as buttermilk, or goes into their ice cream. I never realized that's how buttermilk is made. My dad liked it, growing up on a farm like he did. I don't care for the stuff myself.

I home make butter just to get the real buttermilk - which I use for pancakes / waffles.

No, I'm not Kate, but that's what Buck used to call me.

Unfortunately Kate's Buttermilk isn't available in our area. Glad you have it where you are.

It is a great product to have on hand.
I did the same here. I wonder if keeping it in the fridge will help prevent it from clumping up. I threw about half of it out because I couldn't get it to break apart and mix into my cooking.

If you don't use buttermilk very often it might be better to buy the packets.

This is the first time I have seen this product in packets. Only the nice little round can. Looks like a promising product.

Not too pricey either: Amazon.com : Saco Foods, Buttermilk Powder, Cult, 3.2 Oz* : Powdered Milk : Grocery & Gourmet Food
