Traditionally, Buttermilk is the liquid left after churning butter from the cream. It refers to a large number of dairy based drinks which are common in hot weather conditions. The naturally occurring lactic acid bacteria produced in the milk fermented it. So, it is known as Cultured buttermilk and it has a sour taste caused by lactic acid bacteria.
The tartness of buttermilk is caused by the acid in the milk. The acidity is due to lactic acid produced by the bacteria while fermenting lactose, the primary sugar in milk. Both traditional buttermilk and cultured buttermilk contains lactic acid, but traditional buttermilk is less viscous compared to the cultured buttermilk which is more viscous. Buttermilk can be drunk straight or it can be used in cooking. It is also used in marination of chicken and pork where the lactic acid in the buttermilk helps the meat to retain moisture, tenderize and adds flavour to it.
