When I started Keto back in 2017 one of the first things I changed was the fats I used in cooking. I couldn’t use the seed oils anymore because how harmful they are to our bodies due to the inflammation they cause. That led me to learning about better fats to use which led me to grass-fed butter. Yes, I know this type of butter is more expensive than the regular butter you can buy in the store but it’s so much better for us, which is why it’s worth the cost.
Grass-Fed Butter: Which Ones I Use
Many people love Kerrygold butter and I will use it when I can get it on sale. However, I don’t have a particular brand I stick with as I found other grass-fed butter brands which are just as good.
While shopping at Publix one day I came across Truly. Due to its sale price I bought it. It has a great taste like Kerrygold does and I couldn’t tell a difference between the two when I cooked or baked with it.
I’ve also tried the grass-fed butter available from Aldi. It’s regularly $2.99 in my area so it’s usually much cheaper than other brands. Word on the street is that Kerrygold makes this butter for Aldi. Whatever the case, I can’t tell a difference in taste or texture between this butter with the other brands.
Now these aren’t the only brands out there. You can find many others in grocery stores around the U.S., and you can find them locally from farmers or local food shops. If you go with the local option you will probably get a better deal as you can probably buy large quantities than you could in the store.
Why I Won’t Use “Regular” Butter
The main reason I won’t use regular butter again is the ingredients. Most of these brands use natural flavors which aren’t natural unlike its namesake.
Butter is cream and sometimes salt (I prefer unsalted butter). There’s no need to add natural flavors. The actual flavor of it should come from the cow’s milk.
The other reason I won’t use this type of butter anymore is that it doesn’t have a good flavor. After eating grass-fed butter for years now when I eat “regular” butter it tastes plain. Yeah, I’m gonna be that lady. And don’t you dare bring any “fake” butters around me ’cause I’ll knock you out.
