Bring on the butter
Butter is a powerful tool on your journey to a better you.
If you're looking to get more healthy fats into your diet, your search is over! Made through a process called churning — shaking milk so fast it separates into butter and buttercream — butter is one of the smoothest ways to get over 400 different fatty acids into your body. Which is great, because they're essential to our health!
Butter has a melting temperature of 98.6°F— the exact temperature of the human mouth. What a mouthful of mouthfeel!
Butter is one of the best sources of butyrate! What's butyrate? It's a short-chain fatty acid found in butter that's important for gut health, breaking down undigested carbohydrates, and so much more!
If you're looking for complex dietary fats (who isn't?), butter is the best— it has over 400 different fatty acids!
Want to make your own butter at home? Fill a mason jar halfway with heavy cream, shake up and down for 6-8 minutes, and BAM! You've got butter. (And buttermilk!)
