Why Grass Fed Butter?
We know that the nutritional content of meat changes dramatically based on what we feed an animal. Well, the same concept applies to butter, and thus grass-fed butter is packed with nutrients and health benefits. Additionally, the vast majority of people simply like it better for it’s flavor.
Pasture-Raised vs. Grass-Fed vs. Organic
The terms grass-fed and pasture-raised and organic can be be confusing. Wouldn’t cows eat grass in a pasture? Farmers doen’t put pesticides on pastures do they? So it’s the same thing, right? These can all overlap, but aren’t necessarily one and the same. Like many food labeling “things” these have very specific meanings…here you go:
- Grass-fed means the cows’ food is grass – it refers to their diet and what they eat
- Pasture-raised means the cows roam free in pasture – it refers to where they live and spend time
- Organic means the cow’s grain was organic and the cow wasn’t exposed to pesticides or GMOs – it refers to their diet
