  • Butter oil - grim!

    I have no problem taking my fermented cod liver oil, and use the little syringe it came with to measure out 2ml, which I swallow easily. Taste not too bad.

    Bitter oil however?! Ew! Insert expletives. Disgusting!

    I didn't but the dual caps this time as the dose is low compared to high price. So I bought separate bottles.

    The CLO which I thought would be gross, is fine! While I struggle to get the butter oil down without gagging.

    Any tips/tricks on how to disguise the taste?

    Eat food. That's my solution. Why are you taking this stuff???

      Butter oil tastes and behaves just like ghee and can be used as a food, try it on a potato with some salt?

        I have eaten both and I have to say that ghee is so much better. Butter oil is tasteless. Ghee tastes like browned butter. I bought butter oil once and never will again.

        I am curious as to why you think it is beneficial.

          It's supposed to help with the absorption of the CLO, I think. And it contains factor x (vitamin k?)

          The gel caps I was taking before (Green Pasture) contained both. So, I bought a bottle of each and take it at the same time as my CLO.

          I can't get grass fed or organic anything here. I was kinda hoping it would negate that.

            J3nn, thanks. I will try that idea.

              These capsules are WORSE than non-grass fed butter. Think about it, bitter butter? Does that sound right to you? No, that sounds like rancid butter. I'm sure the PUFA police can show up with all the links to how damaging these processed oils are and usually I think they are a little overstating, but bitter butter? I would be terrified to wonder what is _really_ in that.

                I think it was a typo. He meant butter oil, not bitter oil. I think butter is mostly saturated fat, so no pufa worries.

                  Well, he said it tasted bad too, so I thought the bitter might be part of that. Still, the logic isn't there: eating this good heavens knows what on theory that it is better than real whole food? Booooooogus.

                    It's not always that straight forward for everyone. I have been eating a paleo diet with heavy emphasis on nutrient density for nearly 3 years. This includes oysters, liver, bone broth, brazil nuts, etc. In spite of this I have multiple nutrient deficiencies that require supplementation.

                      What nutritional deficiency requires supplementation of a normal diet with fermented cod liver oil and butter oil?

                        I don't know about that. I had this one Amazon.com: High Vitamin Butter Oil (Grass fed & Organic) 12 Oz: Health & Personal Care and it tasted just like ghee/butter to me. I used it in cooking and drizzling on food. It was delicious but very expensive. I went through it in about 3 weeks.

                          I wasn't speaking directly about those supplements. Just commenting on your statement that when a person is eating this healthy the very idea of needing to supplement is bogus.

                          I don't take either of those, but they are both supplementing from whole food sources.

                            Well now I want some. Holy crap on the price though. I make my own ghee and let it brown until just before burnt so it's darn tasty. I bought butter oil once but it just tasted like oil.

                              Whoa. How this works is my direct quote is available above. That is NOT what is says.

                              "Still, the logic isn't there: eating this good heavens knows what on theory that it is better than real whole food? Booooooogus. "

                              If anyone would like to educate me about how these products are anything other than a siphon attached to the OP's wallet, I'm still waiting.
