Butter is a good source of vitamin A, D and K, essential for absorption of calcium and phosphorus that we need for strong bones and teeth. Choose organic butter from grass-fed cows over butter f rom grain-fed cows as it provides more conjugated linoleic acid that has strong anti-inflammatory benefits and even protects against certain cancers. Preparing flavoured butters and freezing them in icecube trays is good way to add flavour and nourishment to dishes!
