Health Benefits of Organic Pasture Butter
Organic butter made from the milk of pasture-raised cows not only supports humane care for the animals but is a nutritionally superior product. Able to roam freely and eat their natural diet of grasses and plants, the milk produced by these cows is lower in calories and fat while supplying a richer source of vitamins. Additionally, the levels of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in the milk from pasture cows can be up to five times higher than the milk produced from their grain-fed counterparts. CLA is a beneficial fatty acid usually lacking in the modern diet. This fat is an important component of adrenal health and has also been shown to aid in weight loss, especially around the midsection.
