I've been eating plenty of Kerrygold butter, which I understand is grass-fed, but not raw. I absolutely love it. But when my grass-fed farmer started carrying raw dairy products, I eagerly bought some raw butter. OMG, I absolutely hated it! I could barely choke down my eggs the next morning. How much nutrition am I missing out on by just eating the delicious Kerrygold grass-fed butter that's not raw? I'm so disappointed that I didn't like the raw.

Kerrygold is absolutely magical medicine i'm convinced. I broke a bone connecting my hand to a couple fingers and in 10 days I was doing everything I normally do with it. Could almost do a pullup or two. It's been three weeks now and my hand is back to completely normal, only a very slight soreness present. The massive gaping wounds on my knuckles from a bike crash have dissapeared and brand new light pink skin tissue replaced everything, it looks beautifully healed. Something about the grass-fed butter with K2 in it, and eating a vitamin D rich diet makes my body heal quicker than I ever remember.

I upvoted to bring the OP back to "0". No reason to downvote this simple statement of tastes, and, btw
I love my goat who gives me my raw milk. Her name is Sylvia. :)

Raw Butter and Raw Dairy has extreme amounts of health benefits!!!! Mostly including probiotics and enzymes which are essential to your body. Without probiotics you will have a weak immune system and be prone to diseases like cancer and without enzymes you will die. You're body cannot function without either of these things and today's diets make it so you don't get enough of them. Some raw and all pickled food are filled with both these things. If you cook anything it automatically loses all it's probiotics and enzymes. 100% of them. Raw cheese is also very beneficial :). Best of health!

@Matt: I suppose you were kidding, but just in case, "raw" butter refers to making it from raw milk that hasn't been heat-treated. It's considered healthier if you can find the raw milk, and it's easy to make such butter at home.
What are you missing? I don't know. I had raw milk and milk products at one time and I liked them but I didn't notice any definite benefits.

I gotta agree with Matt. What possible health benefit could raw butter have?
Read Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. There are many benefits to eating raw butter. There are lots of recipes in there that will fit right in a Paleo diet.
