Why Grass-Fed Butter Is Really Good For You (Infographic)

The idea of butter as a health hazard has faced many a contender as of late. With everyone from Mark Bittman touting its renaissance to a particularly memorable Time cover this summer with a simple command "Eat Butter," it's clear that butter is no longer the enemy.

Turns out, saturated fat, like the one found in butter, has no proven link to heart disease as was previously thought, but rather it's the trans fats, additives and sugar found in many processed foods, like butter alternatives, that are putting our health at risk.

Butter, in its true form, is rich in fat-soluble vitamins, healthy saturated fats and fatty acids. However, not all butter is created equal.

Grass-Fed Butter

Butter made from milk that comes from grass fed cows (and preferably kept raw) has the most health benefits for you. It's a real, whole food with little to no processing or refinement, much like cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil or virgin coconut oil.


The man who urged us to put butter in our coffee, Dave Asprey of the best-selling book The BulletProof Diet, lends us his awesome info graphic from his website, breaking down the nutritional benefits of grass-fed butter.
