Butter is a high-quality dairy product which has nutritious value and special taste. The purpose of this research was to evaluate the Reichert-Meissl values of the butter samples produced in Turkey. 120 butter samples were collected as study material in 2015. The Reichert-Meissl values of the butter samples were determined in accordance with the Turkish standard (TS1331). The mean Reichert-Meissl values of butter samples were 25.35 ± 6.76. The highest Reichert-Meissl value was 31.11 was and the

When the Reichert-Meissl values of the butter samples were compared with other research results, the average Reichert-Meissl value was in accordance with previous studies. Adequate surveillance programs should be maintained to prevent the impact of food fraud.
