Shouldn't it be "The butter..." to be translated as "Le beurre"?

French doesn't state things without articles the way English sometimes does. You couldn't say "Beurre est un ingrédient". You need the article before it. See this link and skip down to "definite articles".... http://www.languageguide.org/french/grammar/articles/
