Fats Explained: Where to Get Pastured Butter


Whether you suffer from Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating, Obesity, emotional eating, or have problems with weight management due to restricting or overeating, you need to know about what fats do in your body once and for all. In other words whether you are obese, underweight or a normal weight, if you are having problems regulating food intake in healthy ways, this series on fat is a must.

Where to Get Pastured Butter

Pastured butter is an excellent source of CLA. To my knowledge, there are no American farms or cooperatives that are currently selling butter from 100% grass-fed cows. Although cheese from all-grass-fed cows is available from many suppliers, grass-fed butter cannot be found. Restrictive government regulations and lack of consumer awareness keep small-scale butter operations from being profitable.

An excellent source for all-grass-fed butter can be imported from Germany by the Allgau company. The butter is made from cows that are raised on pasture or grass silage, making it five times higher in CLA and also higher in vitamin E and beta carotene than commercial butter, whether organic or non-organic. It costs about twice as much as ordinary butter and about the same as organic butter. It is yellower than butter from cows raised in confinement, melts at a lower temperature, and has a terrific taste. You can purchase it online from igourmet.com.

Other options are to make your own butter, which isn’t nearly as difficult as it sounds. I’ve posted a recipe for butter here. You may also be able to convince your local supermarket to stock it, eliminating the high cost of shipping. Check this site out for grass-fed options – www.eatwild.com
