    Great post! Thanks for all the helpful info. I LOVE that I don’t have to feel guilty enjoying butter! My mom did a good job teaching us that what came from nature would be the healthiest food. But even still I was a little worried eating fat would make me fat. No longer! I now eat grass-fed butter by itself, just by slicing off pieces of cold butter. Does that make me weird? Probably. But I’ll be a healthy weirdo :-D.

    Thanks Melodie,
    You’re not the only weird one – I eat butter by the spoonful.

    to my understanding to get all the full benefits of real butter must have real milk right from the cow to make the best butter, I like butter i have made my own from 35% cream,
    we really dont have access to real milk
    thank you

      Do you have access to grass fed milk?

        Yes, I live in the Northwest where we can get raw, grass fed, milk, cream and cheese.

      I am lucky- I can go the Farmers Market and get raw pasture fed cream to make my butter.

    I’m all for eating raw dairy. However, I’ve heard from vegetarians, vegans, and raw foodists that you don’t need to consume cholesterol as the liver makes all the cholesterol you need so you don’t need anymore. Can anyone refute this?

      It is true that our bodies produce cholesterol,it is so important that humans cannot live without it. The body produces cholesterol as it is needed and can use carbohydrates, proteins and fats for the raw material. The reasoning for eating cholesterol-rich foods is to give the body these wonderful rich nutrients so the body does not have to work as hard. Also, foods rich in cholesterol have vitamins A and D in a balanced form. These vitamins are necessary for our health and are best absorbed if from an animal source.

    Okay silly question… Im in Los Angeles… so raw grass fed milk etc is avail, but the butter always sells out. So my question — Is there any extra benefit in eating butter as opposed to eating the raw cream? I mean same nutrients. DO you get the same nutritional benefits from eating the cream as you do the butter? Is it merely just with butter you can have more options in ways of consuming it?

    Very simple to make the butter, but I just thought, arent the benefits the same of the cream vs butter? Excuse me for my silliness. :) Was a raw vegan for 9 years. :) It messed with my brain. pun intended :)
