Butter Oil - what’s so good about it anyway?

By Katrina Armstrong on May 16, 2010

Our featured product this month is Butter Oil.

Butter Oil

Dr. Weston A. Price first discovered High Vitamin Butter Oil in the 1930’s.

How is it made?

Butter Oil is made from butter that comes from cows eating 100% rapidly growing grass. The dairy oil is purely extracted by centrifuge, without the use of heat.

Why is it good for me?

Butter Oil contains the X-factor, discovered by Weston Price. This X-factor (Vitamin K) helps the body to absorb and utilize minerals.
Butter oil contains the Wulzen factor, also called the anti-stiffness factor, which may protect humans and animals from calcification of the joints – degenerative arthritis.Butter Oil also contains a broad and deep range of Quinones including Vitamin K’s, E’s, and CoQ enzyme families.Other important nutrients include: CLA, Butyric Acid, Stearic Acid, Oleic Acid and Lauric Acid.

What if I already eat high quality butter? 

Great! However, Butter Oil is a highly concentrated source of all the goodness found in butter. You would have to eat an unreasonable amount of butter to compare with the goodness found in Butter Oil.

How it is different from ghee?

Ghee is heated during the process of extraction, destroying  many of the nutrients found in butter oil. Ghee can also be made from any butter, whereas butter oil is specifically made from butter that comes from cows grazing on rapidly growing grass.
The speed of the grass growth, timing of the grazing of this grass, species of grass, climate and extraction method are all important to make real High Vitamin Butter Oil.

What does it taste like?

Butter Oil has a strong cultured cheesy flavour. Once opened, it will continue to culture, so if left in a cupboard, the flavour will become stronger over time.

Where do I store it?

Butter Oil may be stored in a dark pantry or refrigerated. It will become hard like butter in the fridge.

How do I take it?

You may take the oil either as solid or liquid. If the butter oil has become hard and you want to take it as a liquid, here are a few ideas:

* Take your serving size out of the bottle with a teaspoon and leave it sitting in a cup overnight. It should soften by morning.
* Melt the butter oil in a small amount of warm water.
* Melt on porridge
* Mix into a smoothie
* Mix into plain butter and use as a spread

Does it come in capsules?

Yes! Great for when your travelling or simply for convenience.

Should I take it at the same time of Fermented Cod Liver Oil?

Yes! Weston Price discovered that there was a profound synergistic effect when traditional cod liver oil was combined with High Vitamin Butter Oil.

How much do I take? The typical dose is 1/2 teaspoon.

How long will one jar last?

Our 237ml jar will last 3 months if taking 1/2 tsp per day.
