The subject here is about non Jewish milk, cheese, and butter and the heter of buying non Jewish butter.

    tzatzuchey chalav = droplets of milk. Have a look on Aruch HaShulchan YD 115:20-24, it will probably make it clear for you. sefaria.org/…

particles of diluted milk (in the holes of cheese)
