  • Cant find grss fed butter here

    I live in Alberta, Canada. There is no grass fed butter anywhere in town or out of town. Spoke to many others and they cannot find it either and it cant be shipped out of the US.

    So how much of a difference would unsalted organic butter be to use health wise? lots of that here

    I would suggest checking the website for whatever brand of organic butter is available to you. Good chance it is grassfed, just by virtue of being organic. If it's not on the website, contact them to find out. Then please post your info for the rest of us Canucks. :-)

      I've never been able to find grassfed butter anywhere in Alberta. I just buy the organic stuff and not worry about it.

        I typically get my grass fed butter from Wholefoods.

        A good brand is Kerrygolds.

        Are there Wholefoods in Alberta?

          Been looking in Alberta as well, no kerrygold in costco either.
          I just live with it and buy cultured butter....much higher fat content.

              no kerry golds butter in alberta as far as I know and theres a big deal with shipping grass fed to Canada and US I believe.

              I just wanted to know also if organic unsalted butter would affect weight loss compared to if I used grass fed

                      Get the best of what you can find and what you can afford. It's not going to matter a whole lot in the long run.

                        I live in Calgary and I ordered Organic Grass Fed Ghee from Pure Indian Foods.
                        Their website is really easy to use and it was no problem shipping to Canada.

                          This makes me sad, also being in Alberta...I recently came home from a trip to the Caribbean with 4lbs of frozen Kerrygold in my suitcase because we can't get it here. It tastes so. Bloody. Good. I gross out my mister by eating it straight.
                          It's not just that it's tough to find grass-fed butter around here, but there's also a limit on the milk fat percentage so Canadian butter has less milk fat and more water/milk solids in it. There's a whole set of crazy regulations on dairy products here that are apparently meant to protect Canadian producers.
                          You *can* bring butter back from the States duty free, but there is a limit of $20 worth per person. Take some friends on a quick cross-border trip and stock up, perhaps?
                          There are decent options available, though - Foothills Creamery makes some tasty butter. Organic Meadow is a brand that's almost 100% grass fed, but right on the website it says the feed has to be supplemented with grains in the winter because, well, there's no damn grass.

                            This is all I use and it is so delicious.
                            I'm in the states and order it from Amazon.

                              Use cultured butter it has a higher fat content and tastes more like European butter
