"New Love. Mmm. We first spotted it at Whole Foods but ended up buying it at the farmers' market, straight from the Ronnybrook vendor. And we've been eating it every morning for the past week."
Let us first state a fact; butter contains many nutrients that protect us from heart disease and cancer! Butter is a most easily absorbed source of Vitamin A, which is needed for the health of the thyroid and adrenal glands and is essential to a healthy immune system. The lecithin that is contained in butter assists in the assimilation and metabolism of cholesterol.
Vitamin E, Selenium, as well as Vitamin A, are all found in butter and are vital anti-oxidants and protect against heart disease. Selenium contains more anti-oxidants per gram than herring or wheat germ. These all play a role in maintaining the functioning of the heart and cardiovascular system. Conjugated linoleic acid, which is an excellent protection against cancer. It reduces adipose hormone leptin which is found in the obese and cancer patients in high quantities. These both play a role in maintaining the functioning of the heart and cardiovascular system. All in all, butter verses the fabricated products such as margarine is better for the body.
Those who consume butter fat are healthier and help our nations' family farms, such as ours, survive. Our butter is fresh churned in small batches at our creamery. It is rich and creamy with 84-86% butterfat content. In addition to the salted and unsalted, our flavored butters are garlic and cinnamon. Our butter, churned in 40 gallon batches which produces a higher butter fat content and allows for very little moisture. It doesn't burn as quickly when cooking; chefs prefer it! We package it in eight ounce containers, one pound French rolls or five pound bricks.
