What is the difference between maas and buttermilk?

You are here:

Cultured buttermilk in South Africa is the equivalent of maas and is generally not manufactured from actual buttermilk, which is a by-product of the butter churning process. It is made in the same way as the maas, but a culture containing flavour-forming bacteria is used instead of only acid formers. This is to give the typical butter flavour (diacetyl) to the product.
