    What's the better butter?

    Shop Now
    Is there any advantage to eating the cultured, "European style" butter as opposed to American sweet cream butter? Do they make butter from sheep or goat's milk?

    A couple months ago I resolved to eliminate dairy, but now I don't think butter is particularly harmful where casein and lactose are concerned. I eat the unsalted stuff by the spoonful.

    European Style yada yada, just a gimmick I suppose. I always go for Kerrygold. Can't beat that.

    Kerrygold unsalted is my butter of choice, too. Available at all supermarkets that I've checked.

    Yes there is goat milk butter. I've never tried it but I think most Whole Paycheck stores sell it.

    Kerrygold

    Although I usually but the Salted unless I am making ghee.
    Strive for healthy today.

    I get the salted Kerrygold.

    If you include cheese in your diet they have a really awesome reserve cheddar, it's tasty and a little goes a long way!

    I've tried finding the nearest distributor of Kerrygold butter and could only find it in the US. I usually make my own butter(easy, whipping cream, hand mixer, mix until it turns into butter. Or pour cream into clean glass jar, put lid on tight and shake forever until it separates and you feel the butter form).

    Does anyone know a close alternative in Canada?
    Calm the f**k down.

    Thanks for the recommendations. I tried some Kerrygold while I was in Hawaii. I hope they sell it in Canada but I don't recall seeing it.

    I had no idea there was a different 'European' butter. I'll look out for it at my next shop. Might just buy it to see what it tastes like.

    I buy New Zealand Anchor butter. I am from there originally and the cows live outside on grass, which they eat most of the time. Quite reasonably priced here in the UK.

    I'll add my voice to Kerrygold. Great stuff: the first butter I've had that I can eat by the spoonful (and sometimes I do).
